Pin It!

I learned, first from Jill and Carolyn, about Pinterest, and now I’ve learned how to use it.  Such fun!

For some reason, there is a multiple-step registration process, in which you “request an invitation” … huh?  But after that, you can browse millions of images and, more important to me, ideas.

This is  perfect example.  I found this idea on Pinterest.  I clicked the image and it brought me to instructions.  Then I made it!!


The point of Pinterest is that they show you how to do it.  Here is one photo that gives it all away:

This was done almost completely with found objects – plus plants from the Goffstown Garden Club.

Later, I’ll post my version on Pinterest, providing a link to this.    Such fun!

Less is So Much More

Today I learned a little Chinese brush painting, at the Kimball-Jenkins School of Art, from teacher Linda Johanson.  I loved it!

Anyone who’s known my painting journey, especially my long-time teacher, Sylvia (who was also a student in the class!) knows that my struggle has been to not struggle: to do less, to fuss less, to overwork and overthink it less.  This method is all about that!  Get in, get out, call it good!  I look forward to learning much more.

Here are the results from the first few hours of this medium:
