Workshop July 22-23

I have had a couple of questions about the workshop in July.  It is July 22-23 in Plains, TX, at the community center.  I will have a drawing for anybody that wants to start out and do what I am going to demo.  It will be 10-4.  There is a good Mexican food place, DQ, and burrito place.  Not sure if the Bar-B-Q will be open.
Or you can bring your lunch.  All you need are 3-4 magazines, canvas and glue.
I prefer the magazines with the slick pages.
The 2nd day, I want you to do your own design. There will be some from Hobbs, and Lubbock. If you are interested contact me for supply list, etc.There is a little Bed and Breakfast in Plains, and a motel in Denver City, if you don't want to drive.

I just got back from a collage workshop doing portraits with Derek Gores.  We were at Cypress Mills,TX.
It was too hot for life nearly! 

We got stranded in Memphis coming from Charlotte,NC due to the weather.  We made the best of it, and got a taxi and went downtown to Beale Street and I saw this woman. She carried herself with so much confidence.  I thought she was very pretty.  I didn't even do her justice, but I tried!
Instead of doing the normal skin color, I chose to do the black and white so it would stand out. I loved her big hair do! I hate to post her photo that I took on here, since I took her with out her knowledge.

Myrtle Beach Trip

Keri and the Pirate where we ate.
Well, it has been nearly three weeks since I was able to post anything! My daughter and I went to Myrtle, Beach for a week, then when I got home I packed up again, and left for a torn paper collage workshop down close to Marble Falls, TX.
Our trip was to SC was awesome! we got there the first night with no luggage.  Then when we started home, we got stranded in Memphis TN due to bad weather, but we made the most of it, and went downtown.
It was a relaxing trip. We went to the beach each day.  When we opened our curtains, our view was the ocean, and if we opened the balcony doors, the roar of the ocean was unbelievable!  Our room was cute and
'beachy' looking.  We went to the SC Opry  and it was very good. We experienced seafood we never heard of! One by accident. It was Conch, and pronounced Conk. Not impressed with that either.
Everybody there was so friendly, and the beach was so clean. I would go back. Maybe I will have a painting come from our trip at some point in time.
