This weekend was the social media blitz of “Storm Area 51”. Our local rural towns here in Nevada, prepared for the festival like event for weeks in hopes of bringing folks out to our tiny communities. HOWEVER, with the fear of “what could happen” should people be daring enough to cross the lines with the USA Military, the amount of people who attended was a disappointment to the vendors who dared to take the challenge to attend the first of its kind festival at this location. I had considered attending as a vendor myself with my art work, these are my kind of people. Perhaps, next year.

We had a LOT of fun, meeting different people, hanging out with our friends and supporting our local Artists. Hummmmm artists and aliens…….Do you believe?

Sending you wishes for an “Out of this World”  Inspirational Day!

Love, De

Student Work

I had given my students the task of creating their own Logo, using the first letter of their first name and the first letter of their last name. They did thumbnail sketches to start with, next was a teacher – client critique to choose one for them to enlarge. During the process I gave them a watercolor paint demonstration of the materials. They had tube, liquid and watercolor pencils to choose from, or to challenge themselves and use more than one. The final Logo was created on watercolor paper to become the cover of their sketchbook. I am so VERY PROUD of the my 7th and 8th grade middle school 2D art students. Their hard work, effort and skills are really starting to shine. They are currently working on their final watercolor painting, gallery~show ready. I will share those as they finish.

I really LOVE inspiring the young artists, however REALLY miss having the time to sit, relax and create a few of my own pieces. I miss all of you too! My long work days, with two hour commute, homework and home chores seem to be overtaking everything else at the moment. This weekend I have 65 sketchbooks, with 6 assignments in each of them to check, grade and critique.

Sending you Wishes for a Productive Positive Day!

Love, De

Hopeful Day

“Rainbow Wishes” Apex, NV

Missing all of you! Spending two hours a day commuting to work and back, along with a 10 hour work day, makes VERY little time for much else. I am slowly getting back into the groove of full time art teaching, with the learning curve of the High expectations for the charter school system. My students are Fabulous, the staff is helpful and kind, and my days go by in a flash! I look forward to the few quiet moments I have on my Saturday and Sunday to check in with all of you!

Hope your days have been  productive and

sending You wishes for Hopeful Creative moments of Inspirations! 

Love, De

Weekends go way to fast! This past Sunday we met up with a few of our Favorite Neighbor Friends out at Lake Mead, NV. Lake Mead is a manmade lake with lots of history of how and why it was created for the Hoover Dam. Yes we have been there many times via boat and road. This weekend we were playing out in Echo Bay which is located at the other end of the lake.

Sending you Funday Relaxing Inspirations for your week!

“Flying Machines”

Their Creativity, Their Imaginations, Their Ideas, really impressed me! I had given my students their first sketchbook assignment of designing and illustrating their idea of a flying machine inspired by Leonardo DaVinci. (I felt really bad after telling them that BEFORE they were Ninja Turtles saving the world, they were actually ARTISTS working in Italy during the Renaissance. The looks on their faces was priceless). I added to the assignment and had them CREATE their own “flying machine” for homework. Friday we went outside to the playground to test their flight. WOW!!! Quite impressive results! Smiles, skills, sunshine and art “FLYING FRIDAY”!

Hope your week has found some Inspirational Flight!

Love, De
