Thanks, Nolan, had two new folks this week.  One is an older gentleman who seems to have some art skills.

Thanks, Dennis, Mary Lou and Gita.

Next class, we are going to gesso over old canvases and paint a scene from a recent outing to a nearby ranch.

One of the students in my senior citizen art class has been coming to my house with her husband to paint. They come to Hawaii every winter and I really enjoy their company. Yoshiko is getting really good. I am holding the painting she did and she is holding one (a treasure - as her husband translated it for me) that I painted for her.

Thanks, Patricia and Dennis.

Teaching has been my whole life.  But, my seniors bring me more gratification than I have ever had. 

If it were not for what I learned on PaintBasket, I would not be able to do what I do.

You are doing a wonderful job.. Mea.  :yippee: You are saying that you were teaching all your life? What did you teach before art, Mea? Also art? Other subjects? I am curious.

This week, my Kupuna Art Class blew me away. Fantastic work on reclaimed old canvases. Just house paint with Dr. Ph Martin India inks. Fun art. Most are still drying so I do not have a group photo. Here is a group painting that we all contributed to. Then one from my star student, SILK. I told the class that this was the WOW-est class we have ever had. Great group. Good fun.
