Art Sisters

There is something that I could have never imagined that would happen in my lifetime, is that I would have a group of friends that are considered my "Art Friends".
Before children came in my life, I did some painting. And then when I had children, my art existed helping in science projects, 4-H demonstrations, and other school activities that required some creative help. A divorce after 27 years of marriage made me seek what I loved and enjoyed. I had to find myself.
A few years down the road I met a man that was an artist.  He was a kite maker...I married him. That's another story for another time. In our time together we would go to the bookstores, and I found a Somerset Press Gallery magazine. That magazine would open up a entirely new world me. I had no idea that it was going to take hold of me. BIG hold! I wanted to know more....to make some of this art.
I searched the internet and found classes around the nation. My first adventure was "Art and Soul" in Las Vegas. That year it was held in 3 locations and the least expensive flight for me. I talked a girlfriend into coming along.  I went to take classes from Lisa Kaus. She is an amazing artist and wonderful teacher. I have felt privileged to watch her work becoming household items with her contract with Demdaco. I walk into Hobby Lobby and see all her designs.
I love this pic of Lisa. She is such a happy soul. It was obvious, she loved what she was doing.  

At this point, I was hooked on mixed media. I wanted to learn and absorb all that I could. 
This is one of the pieces that I made from Lisa's classes...

Wow, Teresa! You are on my Bloglovin'. I picked it not even knowing it was you. I had a class from Lisa at Silver Bella and I think it was one of the nicest things I have made. So good to have found you on your own blog. Hugs, Sue R.
