Working Snowman...and Snow-woman

So we wanted to put a twist on our 1st grade snow people. The kids did not want to have ordinary snowmen. At first we talked about just adding a hat. Then we decided on jobs. So now all our snowmen and women have their work uniforms on.

After drawing the snowperson use watercolor paints to paint it.
Allow the watercolor paint to dry.
To add the snow we used tempura paint, bubble wrap and a brayer.

Apply the paint on the bubble wrap using the brayer . 

Place the bubble wrap on the pictures.

Continure adding painted bubble wrap until the picture is covered.

A Day At the Farmers Market in Virginia...

We have a local farmers market in our area that pops up on Sunday afternoons. 
The colors there are amazing.

There is a live show with local musicians

Hubby loves the peppers...he makes his own salsa and it is fantastic. 
I wish he would sell it.

Look her hair matched the bell peppers

Art Opening With Martin Cervantez at Clearbrook Center of the Arts...

Hubby and I recently went to an art opening at the Clearbook Center of the Arts in Tachettsmill Shopping Center in Lake Ridge, Virginia. We went in support of one of our favorite local artists, Martin Cervantez. We have several of his works and bought a couple more at this show. It was our Christmas presents to each other. Martin says we are official collectors now! 

Martin's tribute to the people who were killed and injured in the Las Vegas shooting.

This is my new Cervantez piece. It is a collaboration he did with another artist and I just love it.

This piece is amazing...I wish I could tell you the artist.

Isn't this just the coolest art space ever!
