A Glorious Day For Sunprints!!!


Yesterday I ahd the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful play day with my good art pal and partner in junking crime, Leslie Brier. Leslie is very busy these days creating her own art and teacher various kid's art classes with a group of artists called The Creative Side. (This is the group that t teaches the drawing classes that have turned my daughter Becca, onto drawing!! They are a terrific bunch of gifted teachers!!) I managed to get Leslie over to show her the in's and out's of sun printing as she has seen my sun prnts and wants to work up a lesson or two for her teaching duties with her students.
Above you see just several of the prints that I created, eventhough we had one of those in and out sun kind of days. I was not sure how crisp our results would be, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Now If I can only be so lucky to be blessed with todays sun shine and light breezes for my Sun Printing Workshop that is scheduled for next Saturday, at noon, at Liberty Town!!!! I would love it if you could all send me sunny thoughts for next weekend!!!

Sending you wishes for sunny days and calm winds next weekend! The sunprints are fantastic. I love using hydrangea blossoms also. Memories of summer to enjoy in the winter.

These turned out very well, Elizabeth. I'm impressed. And do I understand that something of this nature will come to L-town for the 6 x 6 show? I hope so!

We'll all pray for a gorgeous day for your workshop.
