Fun at Zinnia's

Whenever I am back in Southern California, I always make sure to meet up with my good friend, Chris. Our favorite thing to do is to take a class together at Zinnia. What a fun store--GREAT people, lots of inspiration and lots more goodies to use in your art. Best of all fabulous classes to learn and have fun in. Here are the C(h)ris-es taking a class with Paul. Had a another wonderful class with Joe the week before making polyclay beads.

This is my canvas I made using an image of Keely the Farmer. I added a little Tristan on his tractor later. You can visit her website 'Dancing Frog Farm' and see her menagerie--it's a mini horses! There are 'regular' size animals too....BIG dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, lizards...a fun place to visit.

I'm closing my site for now....

so I thought I'd post some of my favorite artwork from there....hope you enjoy!

This was my daughter, Keely's birthday present this year...a little Hawaii for her on the east coast. We had fun filling the pocket's with touristy stuff. The sunflower fabric on the inside is from scraps of her bedroom curtains when she was little.
