Cards, eggs, and washing chickens

After watching the chickens roaming around this afternoon, I realized some of them needed a the posterior regions.  So I donned the rubber gloves, got out a basin and proceeded to give several VERY ANNOYED ladies a splashy bath time.  I won't say it was a great success, but it was an improvement.

After that nonsense, I got back to the main goal of the day:  photographing my greeting cards and posting more illustrated eggs for my Etsy shop.  Click on the photos to be taken to the actual listings.

Also, I've been busy making notes for my "Unlock Your Inner Creature" drawing class next month. Seven out of eight spots have been filled which is very gratifying.  I'm having fun looking through my stack of sketchbooks (and adding to my latest one) all the while paying attention to just HOW I come up with creatures.

This is a class aimed at those of you who wish to create whimsical, inventive creatures WITHOUT the pressure of making something realistic.  No prior drawing experience is necessary.  

We will experiment with materials and ways of seeing. The goal is to loosen up, have fun, and go home with some new creature friends and the skills and knowledge to make more!

Materials are provided, but feel free to bring a favorite pen or paintbrush.  Come ready to get your hands dirty and you may want to wear "studio" clothes or an apron.  

Pre-registration required by July 8th, 2014.  Please call Artists' Mediums at (802) 879-1236 or (800) 255-1290 to register.  

All levels welcome.  Ages 16 and up.
