2014 Summer Art Camp ~ Day 1


I don't think chemo is supposed to BE this fun... 

I couldn't have imagined what great distraction & inspiration were possible.

Today was Day 1 of 2014 Summer Art Camp with Carla Sonheim et al.

Here are some wrong-handed crabs I drew to "warm up" or get loose.

And here is my final finished Beach Painting with Fred Lisaius.

Kind of got carried away and made my "shells" into wee critters...

I think I will call this one "Beach Blanket Brouhaha." 

Just the thought is enough for a good long laugh.

I'll share more in the days to come.

Gives me a good reason to post back here...

Haven't done so in nearly 3 months!!!

I like your wrong handed crabs! And, I saw your Beach Blanket Bouhaha on Flickr and loved it! As always, Carla's classes don't disappoint. Glad to see you are feeling well enough to make art!

Hello dear Currie, I have missed you and wondered if you were having treatment. I'm so glad to see you back making your wonderful art. I am also sending positive thoughts and a virtual hug your way. My niece is having chemo too so I will put you together in my mind and think of you often. Oh, and I love love love the crabs. I think they suit wrong handed drawing somehow.
