A day in the Art Studio....Look what gets accomplished.




Hand Painted Book Shelf For Star of the Sea School's Auction:
Well...I did what I set out to do yesterday, stayed focused, stayed in my "studio", and painted this book shelf.
The kindergarten class, along with a little parental supervision (thanks to Genie) painted their fingerprints all over the sides and top of this beautiful book shelf. I spent a good portion of yesterday morning pondering what I would do with all those little prints.
This is what I finally came up with. Of course, there is still much left to do, but I think I'm pleased with the start.
I better get back to work, as the auction is this Saturday...Yikes.


Enjoy your Earth Day!

  8. Adorable! Makes me want to give my own little bookshelf a makeover, but I haven't your skill. Perhaps I could handle a more abstract design...;)
