“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

How Many Days Are There In March?

Why do we have so many that are 20 degrees below the average temperature.
-9 with the windchill (on Karen's phone) this morning.  Pure bliss!

 There was a small window of time around 6:30 when the sky was pinky red.  It only last for a few minutes and changed to a murky grey.

Same old, same old chores.

 Class today.  All were working on different projects.
 Remember the faces Joanne started drawing?  She got into the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain," ordered it at the bookstore....and today she worked on upside down drawings.
 She gets it and is moving right along.
 Jean brought a big box of cards she had printed recently.
 They were made from her drawings and photographs.
 Tina continued to work on her mixed media project....Tabby.
Here's the drawing in progress.

I love taking pictures every class so my students can see how their work develops.

Spent the afternoon trying to get a poster ready for our Art Show at A Different Path Gallery.  I could not get it to go from Word to an email in an open format until 5 phone calls later when my techie friend Roger set me straight.  If all the people showing send it to their friends, we should have a good crowd at the opening.  Thank you Roger.
Chores a little after 5.  At least it warmed up into the teens.

 All of a sudden the horses headed to the back pasture....
 there must have been at least 20 deer by the hedge row.

 Set up their dinner and tucked them in for the night.

Once again, Gary made a salad and we had left over pork and rice from last night.
 Tomorrow is another day.
Night all.


  1. I always enjoy seeing the talent from your students.

  2. In the teens here too. It's got to stop sometime as March marches on.

    Interesting about working upside down. My one daughter who is a very talented artist sometimes works like that. Your students are all very talented and I'm sure your show will be a big success!

  3. Love the sky photos as always! I'm with you. Although I love winter so much I am officially done. But I am so dreading the months of mud!

  4. lovely poster Lori!
    I hope tomorrow is a sunny one.

  5. Oh the weather is something!
    Enough said of that...

    I love seeing the progress your students are making.
    And I wish I could draw!

  6. I was taken aback when I saw the book about drawing on the right side of the brain as my wife got that for me a long time ago and I never used it.
