Bare Essentials Bag


Aline's Bare Essentials Purse, canvas/mixed media/fiber, front

Since I've been at LibertyTown, January has been the month to show the work of the students of the artist/teachers there.  Although I taught a great deal in 2009, many of my students are young, and the holiday season is a hard time to stress their parents (and me) out to get something framed for this show.  Which really means, I wasn't willing to push hard enough to get it to happen! Maybe next year....

So, I was very pleased that Aline (who is a Grownup) wanted to show her little bag from a workshop I taught in November called Taste of the Arts.  Two other artists and I teamed up for an all-day, make-and-take fun items workshop.  Some of the participants made gifts to give for the holiday season.  I was glad Aline kept hers, because it is lovely, just like she is.

It is on display in the main gallery at LibertyTown through January, 2010.  I also have one other adult student showing work, but, unfortunately, I don't have a photo of her framed watercolor, Garden.

This is the flip side of Aline's bag.  Blogger freaked and wouldn't let me center this image, oh well.

I will have a new piece I've been working on to share in my next post.  Happy Creating, everyone!

It really was. There was something for everyone---color, sewing, getting messy (my favorite part!)

Thanks for stopping by Deborah.
