The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Last Week of Pre-K

(Click to see larger.) "Happea Birthday" kit by Tia Bennett found here.

~~Well, today is the last day of school for Sierra. It has been a busy and fun week for her. I don't think she really understands what it means when we tell her that it's almost Summer break. She loves school so much that she's really going to miss going.
~~I'm about ready to head up to the school to help out with their icecream sundae party. Oh boy! Twenty 5 year olds hyped up on sugar at 9:30 in the morning, lol!
~~I've been getting some good work in on my ballerina piece. It's all about the skin right now and I'm loving it! For me, skin is the most challenging and yet fun part. I've mentioned him before, but Steve Hanks is one of my all-time favorite artists. (**Note: The above link takes you to his site where there are nude pieces posted.) Dustin and I went to Eureka Springs, Arkansas this February and I had the privilege of seeing some of his work in person. His skintones are to die for! I told Dustin that if the gallery owner's desk hadn't been directly across from Steve's work, I think I would have just plopped myself down on the floor and stared at the pieces for an hour. Maybe some of that artistic genius would rub off on me or something. (But I didn't want the gallery owner to think I was crazy so I just drooled a little while and moved on!) I hope to get some more work in this afternoon and post an update later.
~~Well, make it a wonderful day! It's off to Pre-K for me. : )
