Just Pictures: the last 24 hours or the sky is falling….

June 6th…the movers came, packed up my stuff…

and then they and everything else, were gone…

June 7th, started with a trip to a very sterile doctor’s office…the packers packed my inhaler!

Then to school, here is the lake I walk by everyday and today I finally took a picture..

 

Off to an art show with friends…

Jet Stream chicks (although that was not the real name)

 

 

Walking to dinner with my pal Ali, it was like a Pissarro painting because, surprize…it was grey and rainy.

 

Then the sky started to fall

 

 

And then I realized it was time to head inside or get blown away…sleep time.

 

Take care and thanks for reading!

Just Pictures: Wandering about Brussels

Yesterday we had the day off from school …YAAAAAA!  It was Labor Day here and therefore a free day to do no labor, which I didn’t.  The other special thing about yesterday is that is was SUNNY!  Yes, the sun actually came out and stayed out for many consecutive hours.  I was pleased to have the opportunity to dry out, warm up, feel the sun on my neck.

So I decided to do one of my favorite walks down to the open air flea market and through a bit of the old part of the city.  I love the flea market, which is open EVERYDAY!  When I first got here, I went almost every Sunday.  I rarely buy something, it’s a great place to wander and look at a bunch of old junk and some of it is great old junk.

So here we go, my walk in pictures…

A view of the city of Brussels

I found this funny window arrangement on the way to the flea market.

In these boxes most everything is a Euro, but you need to dig...no energy to dig today.

This guy sells hundreds of glasses, buttons, pipes, matchbooks and more...what a pack rat!

metal and glass

no hands Jesus

awesome record player

After spending some time at the flea market I made my way through the city and found this wall filled with some pretty cool street art.

Belgium is known for its beer (over 900 kinds) and chocolate.  Check out these hippos all carved from chocolate.  I almost passed out from the sugary smell when I entered the shop…

Then it was time to relax a bit and I found this little oasis to sit and enjoy the weather.

I love tulips

On my way home I saw these guys and thought they were pretty funny.

It was a good walk and a great day to be outside…now it is back to work.

Take care and thanks for reading!

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog.  I am a mixed media artist, which to me means I love to create with everything.  I enjoy collage, photography, textiles, ceramics…basically any media that helps me get my point across.

My blog will be a mix of what I see and what I do.  I am a traveler and love adventure.  I cook, I garden, I paint, draw and sew.  I hope you’ll find some inspiration here as I share my artwork, artists I love, and some processes I experiment with.

I am an art teacher, and have been lucky to share my passions with students all over the world.  Currently I am in Brussels,  Belgium, soon to be relocating to Asheville, NC.  I am excited about the transition ahead and what it means for me professionally and personally.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
