Houston, Texas to begin with…. I MISSED YOU GUYS! I have been reading some of your blogs but, I’ve been uber busy. It started 2 weeks ago when I went with Hubby to Houston for him to work. Let’s start there… We pulled our new RV down & stayed in a lovely RV park near Pearland which is south of downtown. Pool, hot tub, grills, horseshoes… this place had it all. Luxury RV’ing for sure! And then…
And invitation to join my precious friend Diane Cook of Rosa & Josie’s for her monthly meeting of THE ROWDY ART SISTERS ART Groups monthly meeting! What a fun bunch of ladies! Above is the image that appears on all of their Art Aprons that they wear each meeting.
This month it was Diane’s turn to host/teach the project & above is her sample. Don’t you adore the little girl in the resin piece? I DO! And I love the rest of it too. The way she finished out that piece of brass heart just set the tone for a precious focal point! Diane is an amazing FRIEND & teacher. Be sure to click on her name above & go visit her to see where all she is teaching. If you have a chance… TAKE ONE OF HER CLASSES!
We met in Kathleen Wedemeyer’s studio which is over the top(click on her name to link to her)! She has “STUFF” … WONDERFUL STUFF EVERYWHERE! And her studio is huge! This is JUST ONE ROOM of it. See the fabric curtain in the back left… another WHOLE ROOM of supplies. And then there is another large storage room for big things like ceiling tiles. On the back wall you can see some of her amazing art hanging on the walls. SHE IS ONE TALENTED GAL! Her studio is located behind her darling stone home & gardens. AMAZING!!!! Her home is like walking into an art dream… Everywhere you look it is over the top decor. I wish I had brought my camera that day but, I didn’t so I am using the photos Diane took to share the day (THANKS DIANE). Kathleen & I first met at ADORN ME two years ago when we took two of Diane’s classes there.
That’s Kathleen on the front left. And you can see me & my buddy Agnes (who I get to hang out with at Round Top every year & at many of Diane’s classes) on the right. This shows some of Kathleen’s goodies on the wall a little closer up.
Everybody working hard…
Our finished watch faces filled with our images & ICE Resin. Mine is that sweet little girl in the center front row. I LOVE HER! I did not set mine in the beautiful piece of brass filigree because I haven’t decided if she will go on an etched cuff bracelet… or if I will use some of the amazing beads that I bought at the Gem Show (can you see a future post there?) that I went to a couple of days later. Indecision stops soooooooooooooooo much creativity for me. DO YOU HAVE THAT SAME ROAD BLOCK? If not… please share how YOU push through that step of creating.
This is Kathleen’s finished piece (Diane went back the next day to help her finish hers). LOVE the image with the gear behind her. And the words… Artist……………….. Good Job Kathleen! Thank you to all you Rowdy Art Sisters for letting me join in your fun day!!!! THIS IS WORTH A MONTHLY DRIVE TO HOUSTON ! Don’t ya think??? They said I could join. And I’m thinkin I should too! NOW……… I must get back to piles of laundry & mail. Not to mention 2 weeks of billing for the company. After a week in Houston we hooked up with Diane & her hubby for a week of RV fun in Kerrville. Lot’s more photos & fun to post about soon.
