Art Class

I recently started teaching art lessons on Tuesday nights in Snohomish. Last night the husband posed for my class. He did a marvelous job, only taking one short break during the 1.5 hour sitting! One of my students gave me the preliminary sketch for her painting. She is 8 years old and I think she did a wonderful job!

The class is all ages and open to anyone who would like to come if you would like more information feel free to e-mail me anytime.

at the beach

We went to Oceanside with my inlaws to celebrate their 40th anniversary in August.
The beach was very windy the first time we went out. We all wore our coats buttoned to our chins.

but I had fun doing it!

Justin Glaser and the June Rush

Give him a listen!

I have free CDs of Justin's music if anyone is interested. He started recording music when he was 16 and continued to do so until February 2004, when he passed away at the age of 20.

The CDs are a 2 disc set with over 20 songs on each one. I designed the packaging. Leave a comment or e-mail me and let me know if you would like to have one.
