(I come by my interest in
china honestly, especially
antique china, because my grandmother
when advised to rest after a
heart attack spent her mornings
painting beautiful designs on china
that her grandchildren covet.
She was an amazing artist.)This month a teacher in Virginia contacted
me asking me if I'd talk to his class (via
Skype) about doing portraits on Skype.
The teacher is an amazing artist himself,
and an inspiring, wonderful teacher at the
public school level. So I'll tell you more about
what we're going to be doing when I know more.
We had a great talk and began tossing ideas
around of how to organize the event.
Meanwhile I am still working on capturing
the last of the summer's flowers (although
now I think you'd have to officially call
them fall flowers.)

But I'm also thinking about my son and
daughter-in-law half way around the world,
on their honeymoon. They have been the
inspiration for many Skype paintings.
I'm including one of Megan and Christopher tonight.
