Art Journaling Halloween Style

monsterink1n2

I'm excited to be teaching my Halloween themed art journaling class at Lowe Mill October 16, 23 and 30 through the Huntsville Art League. This is a super fun class where you don't even have to know how to draw. I'll supply everything you will need and some extra Halloween things as well. Hope to see you there at Lowe Mill. Registration is through the Huntsville Art League:

I'm am excited that the Monte Sano Arts Festival is back this year! It's Saturday, September 21, 9am-5pm and I will be set up with my full array of items. This year I'm also bringing some of the leather journals I have been recently making as well as my newest paintings. I will be introducing some new Red Girls that have a bit of a bite to them.

But the innocent Woodlanders will also be there to balance them out.

If you miss Monte Sano, my last show of the year will be the Art Stroll at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, October 5 10am-4pm. Come out and say hello!
