What A FUN Day!

Last Sunday was the Hingham Arts Walk.  And Girls Just Wanna Paint was there in force.  We were stationed at the Hingham Community Center with a satellite position at Talbots - could it be better?  I doubt it!  
What we did was set up a beautiful still life with gorgeous zinnias, a gift from a wonderful fellow artist, Gail Nathanson, and all of us Girls were in a circle around it, painting it.  We each had a table of our other art, for view and sale, against the walls of the room.  We had cider and delicious cookies, too.  So we got to talk about our work, our methods, our viewpoint and style with the many, many visitors.  
We also got to spread the word about our upcoming show at the South Shore Natural Science Center in Norwell, MA, which goes up November 22.  So much going on!  
My painting, entitled "Zinnia Frenzy" is 10x10 inches on canvas.  It will be at our November show.

Something A LITTLE Different, and Hingham Arts Walk

OK, I'll admit it... I've painted probably a hundred donuts, but NEVER a munchkin!  Whaaat? Seriously.  So as a demo in my North River Arts class (that ends this week, boo-hoo - but a new one will start next week!) we started off with a little bit of sweetness for the first class.  They were amazing students. These 3 were mine, the assignment was to paint the same objects in 3 different compositions.  I think my favorite one is the bottom one, with them all in a row.  How about you???They are on paper.  I will bring them to the Hingham ARTS walk tomorrow.

From 12-4 GirlsJustWannaPaint will be stationed at the Hingham Community Center, 70 South Street, Hingham.  We will rotate in and out of Talbots, too!  We'll have tasty sips and nibbles, and we will be painting a still life!  Come on by!  Say 'HI!'

Koi, 6x6 inch Acrylic by Kelley MacDonald

Right now my cup runneth over.  I will share everything bit by bit with you, my blogosphere friends, but for today... my 3 classes are running very well.  Am I just blessed with incredible people signing up for the classes - QUITE POSSIBLY!

I think it's a combination of their talent (which they will, to a person, deny), attitude of openness to the tasks, and their just goodness.  I love the days I teach.  Sometimes my demos make me happy, sometimes not.  Today was a YES day.  As a matter of fact I was going to name this painting "Saying Yes To All the Good".

Does this mean I don't have worries?  HA!  That everything is smooth and I am not agonizing over this friend or that?  NOPE.  (we will not mention politics here, just ART and LOVE) :)  No, but I have been saying YES to a LOT of things, and am sometimes overwhelmed, but... I am receiving back a thousand fold.  So... thanks for following.

I love these little Koi, and will probably paint them BIG.  Ya Think?
