the first anxious feelings of "what to paint?", as the easel in the back of the class awaited her turn.
This Honda Jill is the resident-artist at the "Shady Rest", the neighborhood biker hang-out & tree by the tennis courts. She has her own easel now, even takes oil painting classes and has her first art-room/walk-in-closet. Thanks Mom, for the art gear (that easel is in the photo above). Thanks Dad, for the bike. Thanks God that I survived the man-hole cover accident after rolling past 3 houses without my helmet on. Convertible Jill has received some Art Awards and is the President of the Art Club! She is into photography now and her Dad got her an awesome Minolta camera, which was stolen out of this convertible that he got her for her birthday. Thanks again, Dad. (You know that my birthday was last week and I still like surprises. Right?) I'll remind my sisters, that I worked hard to pay off the Cougar that was the trade-in.
Thanks to their Art teacher - Mr. Greg Gaby, these two grads got Art Scholarships to Murray State University! Meet my best art-buddy, Joy-Lynn Moneta Henderson, now Thomas, since she married our male model from figure-drawing class. She has spent the huge chunk of time since then and now to develop the artist in her. So, she's this famous portrait artist now. Oh yeah, her book is out [The Art of Portrait Drawing, Joy Thomas - by North Light Books]. So I get to see her when I go in Barnes & Noble. I guess our class was on to something when we picked her for "Most Likely to Succeed". That's OK Joy Lynn, you know I made better grades, that's why the teachers chose me for Who's Who at CHS. Not to mention, I was a champion cheerleader, after two others had to take maternity leave. She is NOT a blogger, but she sure can paint! See her work- Joy Thomas
There is one new blogger I can tell you about. I won't interrupt his workshop in Tuscany, with this award, though I would like to hop on a plane and take it there. Check out Greg LaRock from CA.
