Friday: Fun, Friends and Video Tapes

13 Apr

Where does the week go? I swear, one day it’s Sunday, then you blink and its Friday. My morning involved the usual dog and crazy puppy nonsense, food, treats, in and out, out and in, tearing around the house and tearing up the house. My momentary reprieve was a quick trip to the store to get some snacks and pick up a couple Papa Murphy pizzas for my afternoon painting group at 2. On the way home, I stopped at the tennis courts to watch my friends win a make-up match from Wednesday’s rainout, then home.

A couple hours later, feed the dogs again, and pack up the car with my art supplies and pizzas. Everyone always asks me, “What are you going to work on today?” The reply is usually the same,”I don’t know until I get there and see what they want to do or whatever comes to me. We always wing it.”

A few weeks back, I met this sweet lady named Jane at Snug on the Square. I had invited her to join our painting class at Towne Creek anytime. She said she never painted and would love to learn. I promised her that if she came to just one class, I could teach her to paint bluebonnets. Well, she showed up today, and guess what? Here’s a picture of Jane and her masterpiece after about an hour of practice. Wow! Great job Jane!


Another friend, Krys stopped by. She wanted to give the bluebonnets a try too. She was a natural.


Miss Nelma was kind enough to take a video of my quick bluebonnet demonstration so I could post it on YouTube. I always wanted to do that. Now I can strike that off my bucket list. I’ve done a zillion painting demos and always say afterwards, “Man, this turned out great. I wish I had this on video.” Duh!

You may or may not get this video link on your post. I can’t figure out when it posts or not.


So, my Friday was filled with fun and friends, and now captured for posterity on video. I just may do that more often.

      No!!! I haven’t found a person I couldn’t teach yet. I’ve worked with 8 year olds and people in their 80’s and 90’s. if you make it simple, you can learn.
