Another Busy Week

First of all I do apologize with being late with my Blog. I was hoping to have some images to accompany one of my stories, but they have yet to show up in my email box.

Here's my past week:

Tuesday was 'Artist in Resident' day at TOSH. I had two paintings that I was working on. The volunteer for the gift shop was off being a gramma, so I was also wearing the hat (or beret) of keeping a eye on the shop. But I did manage a coffee date with a friend and got some good painting done.

Wednesday I was off to Port Alberni to give an Artist's talk to two groups of 8-graders. I tried my best to keep them interested, but found some were there just to get out of class. Hopefully I did reach a few kids. At the end of the question and answer period I said "Ha, I brought some of my acrylic paints with me. Would anybody like to give them a try?"

Well that was the key to getting them excited and involved as they quickly lined up at the eisel to try their hand at painting.

I know I had fun! Here is a quote from one of the assistant teachers:"Meeting you has also inspired me to continue to teach students in a real world capacity."

What a nice thought!

Thursday I was in Nanaimo for most of the day - the rest of the week was gardening and beach walking. There you have it - another week!

Till Next Time ...

Love what you Do ... and Do what you Love.
