Blue is a Color of Relaxation

Blue is the color of the sky, the sea, and vintage Volvos. It is the color of wisdom, confidence and intelligence. Blue looks good on almost everyone, and brings a smile to people's faces. It is calming. Blue is also the color of the new Globe Athens t-shirts...designed by me!

Successful Silk Painting Workshop at the Columbus Museum! 

The silk painting class held on April 30th at the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Georgia was a total success! 

We had a great group of participants, from a young lady who was celebrating her 14th birthday with us to a six-month-old baby accompanied by his Mom. It was a talented group of people who really enjoyed mixing and playing with colors, painting with dye, and experiencing the unique artistic qualities of silk. The results were outstanding!

Thanks to everyone who was there for sharing your time with me. I hope we can do it again soon!

As a matter of fact - in Athens, we can do it again soon.


The KA Artist Shop just scheduled my new silk painting class for Saturday afternoon, July 9th, from 1-5 p.m. The price is $85 which includes all supplies. We are adding another hour of class time (from three hours to four) to allow participants enough time to really enjoy the experience without feeling rushed, and we will provide snacks for encouragement and sustenance.
