I have really taken on a lot this month. Along with taxes I’m enrolled in two new online classes. FlashMX is one of them, which I may use as a teaching tool. Since I enrolled I’ve discovered other programs that are free and might be easier. Isn’t that always the way? Oh well, being an information hog, I’m enjoying it. I’m also adding to my digital collage skills by taking an Adobe Photoshop Elements class. It’s not as sophisticated as her big sister Photoshop CS and a bit confusing after using PSCS, but it has a lot of nifty little presets. I’ve posted one of the pieces I created from the pattern, texture assignment using a key as part of the theme. Most of the students are interested in “scrapebooking” so it’s my guess they may not relate to my creations! I have also created some new digital paintings and have posted them on my website .
Back to taxes!

The time has come to get outside and clean up the debris of winter. You have no idea how much I love this time of year. I belong to an online art group whose members are watercolorists and sketch artists. I’m enjoying getting back to drawing. My little birdhouse sitting outside my studio window was the inspiration for this sketch .
