Blessed with a harvest!

These tomatoes on my counter weren't grown by me - I wish they had been. Mine succumbed a nasty blight, and I ended up harvesting little more than a few cherry tomatoes.

My brother Karl, (bless his heart) came to my rescue and gave me a large grocery bag full of slightly unripe tomatoes from his garden, and they've been sitting on my counter getting ready for me to use. We've been making BLT's through out the week, and tonight I will be using many of them for my favorite roasted tomato sauce. Hopefully there will be some left for me to make fresh salsa this weekend.

By the way, if you are ever in the need of a rigorous intellectual challenge, my brother has written two books, Having Words with God, and The Heart of Biblical Narrative. I have yet to delve into them, but one of these days!

It was a sunny weekend...

It was a picture perfect, warm and happy kind of weekend. We spent almost every minute of it outside, enjoying the beauty. Hiking, gardening, grilling, and biking. And of course flower pressing. It was such a lovely weekend that I find myself a bit discombobulated as I reconnect with real life. It's a price that I'm willing to pay! Have a great week!

Upcoming Art Classes in the Northern Illinois Area

Don't you think it's about time for an art class? Of course it is, and if you are in the southern Wisconsin/northern Illinois area I have just the class (or classes) for you.

The Antioch Fine Arts Organization has announced its Fall Class Schedule, with a variety of classes sure to interest just about evryone. Classes include fused glass workshops, airbrushing, various drawing and painting classes, calligraphy, stained glass, as well as an animal art class for children.

I will also be offering my "Totally Green" paper making workshop on Saturday October 3rd, at the AFAF Gallery. We'll spend an entire morning making a number of different types of beautiful handmade papers by recycling unwanted paper. Going Green Paper Making Kits will be available to purchase for those who are interested, but are by no means required.

Here is a complete listing of the art classes available from The Antioch Fine Arts Foundation.
