behold a painted chevron panel. it’s not finished. and… it is not a heart breaking work of staggering genius to be sure, but if you squint your eyes a bit for a blurred effect it is somewhat less uninteresting. i did a lot of it while facetiming with sister. if she would have stopped startling me every 5 minutes with her boisterous unladylike laugh my hand would have been steadier.
i’m going to sand over the top and distress the top a bit. in that way i feel certain i can at least achieve some level of satisfaction. hmmmmm… we’ll see.
while i’m tinkering away on my panel and in my various books i stop occasionally to refill my coconut iced tea and make notes about my upcoming online class. there. i said it. i’ve committed. details will be straggling out in small clusters. here and there.
here is one cluster now, today:
travel journal class slash adventure. partially taking place on location. to be revealed manana.
or should i say domani ?
um yes. i should. i will.
i guess i better stop biting my nails and put my hands on a diet. i’ve got videos to make!
oh – a new class – yeaahhh – how great is that.
Can´t wait to hear more – still need time to take you ‘remains of the day’ class – but I will…

Hi Mary Ann I’ve just discovered your blog. I love it. I might even love you, not sure, never fallen in love with someone from just reading their blog before. I’ve been an elementary teacher for many years too (in Australia) I am interested in your travel class, so will attempt to subscribe to you. I have a blog too, its mainly about my art journaling…. but I wish I was funny like you!!! Kind regards, Alison from Byron Bay
Gwen Delmore says
LOVE the ampersand, and WOOT, a new class!!
Brian Kasstle says

susan w. the coconut creme tea is from ART OF TEA. you can get online. it is exquisite. i ordered 100 bags of the stuff!!! because if i dont drink 2 big icy glasses a day i dont feel right. its very mild and not sweet, but so refreshing. boy do i love it! i make it in old spaghetti jars (clean ones!)
