It was an Artful end to 2011:
In November I participated in the Alexandria Art Market with the help of my daughter Zoe.
For my daughter Autumn's birthday, we took her friends on an Art Adventure to the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. It is a fun-filled art destination featuring all kinds of cool outsider art from paper plate mandalas to mirrored mosaics--definitely worth the trip! The last time we went, my girls got to drive the giant pink poodle kinetic sculpture named Fifi! In December, we continued our tradition of creating a fun family Christmas card. This year's theme was the grinch. I gave my mom a private class in beeswax collage. For Christmas, I set her up with all the supplies she needs to do beeswax at her beach house. I also had a fun with Leslie, Linda and Mary at Wine & Design in Raleigh, NC! Now here we are in 2012...a blank canvas to fill. I'm not sure what artful things are in store for me this year, but I am looking forward to all the possibilities! Happy New Year!
