In my adventure to figure out what I want to do after retiring, as I might have mentioned, my friend Bev suggested Roses on my Table.  I am a member of the group R.A.I.L.  Every month Zinnia posts fun lessons for us to play and create. 

Take a little quilting iron, nope don't iron clothes with it,  I do love to iron while watching TV, and bees wax and just have a good time.  

Here is what I created with her instructions and going to do one more before we go on to a new project.

I can't remember where I got this beautiful image,   I think Vintage Catnip.  Here is the art piece, I loved the whole process and just a relaxing and creative process.  Like I said it has been over 25 years since I have played with any type of traditional art.  I hope you enjoy it. 

Now Saturday I am starting a digital painting class with Karen Bonaker on the Digital Art Academy classes.  These are always fun and gets my painting muse going and working overtime.  I always try the new brushes and explore them,  but go back to Marilyn Sholin's brushes.  Guess you just can't break old habits.   I always said I am not going to do more than one class at a time and here I am fixing to do three.  What is the third one you ask?  Well, just wait and see I say.   I watched the videos and will start playing soon.  

There you go and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.    Of course I will share more artsy goodies with you.
