Busy getting ready for the Holidays and getting close to the end of the fall semester.  I enjoyed the drawing class, but am not sad that it is coming to an end in a few weeks.
 I purchased the most recent copy of Cloth Paper Scissors' Studios a few days ago, and was inspired to rearrange the sewing part of my studio.  I threw out two large bags of fabric scraps accumulated over the past nine years of quilting.  I saved the larger pieces or small scraps of fabrics I loved, but it felt so good to get rid of a rather large basket full of scraps.  (When I first started quilting I saved all scraps thinking I would use them so day...obviously not, the basket's content just kept growing).

After all that work, I thought I would be inspired to rearrange/purge the mixed media part of the studio, but instead I did this.....

Happy Thanksgiving!

I promised to show more of my paintings, so here is another one...
Worked on this one quite a bit and wasn't sure how I felt about it until I added some Shiva sticks to give it more punch.

Okay Pat! Get with the program!!

It's as if I have forgotten that I have a blog.  I have been busy since school started in August, and this class has a lot of homework after each class each week.  Another month to go and Drawing 1 is over for me!  I have decided to take the winter session off so that I can paint.  I have enjoyed the class and am amazed at the talent of a lot of my young classmates.  Here is one of the drawings I have completed in class...  done with charcoal.

But I must say the most fun I have had over the past few weeks is painting in my studio.  I try to paint something or at least do something in the studio every day.  Here are a few things I've done....  There are quite a few other paintings to share later.
