Yup, she is...for reals.
But here's the thing, she still takes art classes.
If you are someone who has an artistic hobby, you know that's a great thing.
When you take classes you are part of a small community that inspires one another. You can get instant criticism and feedback when you need a fresh set of eyes. Then, of course, you learn new techniques and are challenged by your teachers!
All great stuff!!!
So when she asked me to make some cookies for her art class I was thrilled!
....and terrified. These are artists. Good ones. Really, really good ones.
Just a little scary....
Voila...palettes for the artists!
Here's the flipside of the whole art class situation.
When I say to someone, "My Mom is an artist! Her work is amazing. I just saw what she was working on for her class...."
As soon as you say the word 'class', you can see the wheels turning behind their eyes.
They just starting picturing art students all standing around a T.V. watching that art teacher with the frizzy hair telling viewers to paint 'happy little trees...'
Not that kind of class folks....this kind of class.....
....and this one....
...this one too...
(if I remember correctly, I think this one wasn't finished yet...)
(that's my baby, Jack)
Great work Mom! We love you and are so very proud.....
