Bird on a Swirl

I started this little painting in the summer and never finished the background - I finally got around to completing it. I have lots of things like that around here - started but not finished when just a little time would get it done. I think I need to work on that!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back,
the sun shine warm upon your face,

the rain fall softly upon your fields,
and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

- an Irish blessing

My Other Blog

Speaking of teaching, I also write a blog to show how my students create what they create. The finished art is amazing but how did it happen? I take pictures in the art room while students are working  to show the material set up and art in action. Check it out:

Teaching has kept me very busy these past 2 weeks. I've been getting ready for my student's art show so no time for my own art. You can see my student's work at My school is Tate Woods. Enjoy!
