Artful Girlfriends

Our first adventure as artful girlfriends was a road trip to Buffalo last March.
We had such a wonderful art filled day visiting several of Buffalo's Art galleries.
A few months ago we got together and Zanne had a wonderful idea that the three of us should met on a regular basis to share our artwork and ideas.
Two weeks ago, we met in my studio for the first time. We shared our sketchbooks, worked on art projects and helped Zanne upload photos of her work onto her new art blog, ZenZappa.
We were so busy that day I forgot to take pictures so I used pictures from our first trip last March to document our day in a journal page.

Today was our second meeting. Zanne welcomed us into her home and studio, treating us to a delicious brunch.

Zanne, and I with Fern, Zanne's very lovable dog who wanted to be in the pictures.

Lisa loves to write poetry and just joined a poetry group.
Next month I'll remember to include a piece of her work.

We had so much fun sharing creative ideas and lots of laughter.
I can't wait till we meet again.

  3. Hey Karen,
    Your blog looks great, images and words brought tears to my eyes... hard for this to occur in this german/scot elder woman.
    Thank you.
    Later sister, zzz

  4. Thank you so much for voting for the bees !

  5. Hi Karen, thanks for visiting and the tip about the medium. I am just a beginning art and have much to year. I am living on the idea that learning new things will keep the dreaded "A" away. I am old as dirt and don't want any "A". A great blog you have.

  6. Karen,
