So sorry to have been away so long without notice. I know it's frustrating to come over and find the same old post. Let's just say it's been a rough week. I'm having major back problems. I have been abusing my back for the last 10 years and often feel a dull pain, but this time I really did it...the doctor and rolfing masseuse (rolfing is sort of like a chiropractor, but instead works on the tissue between the muscle and the bone- or something like that, I'm no expert) both had the same reaction to my back: " Oh, wow. You've got some big problems." Discs and something else out of place. So, as you can imagine, I have had a few days with no mobility and horrible pain. I am on the mend, but still finding it hard to move. It's especially bad timing because artfest begins tomorrow. Very bad timing. But I have another Dr.'s appointment Monday, so let's just hope for the best, shall we? Thanks guys. Let's just say I have learned my lesson and am officially done taking advantage of my back. I'm sure many of you have had the same terrible experience, and I'm sorry if so! Maybe somebody can learn from my stupidity and start caring for their back.
Anyway, here are the class handouts I was talking about in the last post. Cut and paste is fun, isn't it? I know photoshop will be too, and since I said I would learn to use it a bit this year here, I'm gonna! Here's a page I added for class notes and a few extra goodies.
For vendor night I've got a few different things:
like these canvas pieces.
and more paper portraits...this is the class I'll be teaching at artfiberfest next October.
and the beloved wallpaper packs...
Before my back gave out I was having lots of fun creating, it's been too long. I promise that when I get back I will make more art and paper packs too. I promise. Really, I will. Thanks to all of you who have asked and been ever so patient. The only thing I have to do first is pick out and order the carpet for the house. My family has been patient on that one. Yep, I'm that lame, haven't even ordered it yet.
So, I'll leave you with some close ups- just because I love the details. I'll also say goodbye. I'm off to artfest first thing in the morning. If you're there, please say hi. I'll be the one walking very slowly and in a somewhat crooked fashion. To the rest of you, have a good week!
