Hope everyone was able to take FULL advantage of Open Studios here in Roanoke this weekend! SOOOOOO many talented and inspiring artists we have here . . . I was soooo glad I took the time to tour around and see what everyone else has been up too. It's always fun to see new work AND work in progress right IN the studio.
Eric Fitzpatrick has quite the studio and I left drooooooooling - nice work Eric. We can tell you love what you do and have a special connection with your space. It was a joy to spend time in your studio Saturday morning!!

So . . . am just returning home from a girl's weekend @ Holden Beach! Fabulous trip but alas the work week is coming quickly :(
Will post many more pictures from the getaway but couldn't go to sleep this evening without posting this one and mentioning Mary . . . check out this wild Folk Artist who builds doll houses and paints on windows. She's UH-MAY-ZING and I'm so glad we met her this weekend!
Her glass house was the most impressive . . .

This snapshot was captured on Day Two of the 12.5 in 5,220 challenge and what a day it has been. This close-up of the passenger seat of my trusty Nissan Versa tells all. Not only am I carrying extra weight (my blue and white canvas martha stewart bag) but the "normal weight" my goldenrod matt n nat is strewn all over the place.
It's been a mixed up, topsi turvy day and quite frankly I'm ready to knock a beer back, snuggle with Molly and Maggie (the two pups i'm babysitting) and call it a DAY.
Watch out Roanoke College - I'm headed back.
'Till next time.

I'm a young traveling art teacher who is ready to start making art for arts' sake. I've been creating space for others to be creative and it's time to get back to doing the same for myself!
Today as I was driving my usual route between schools and I made a challenge to myself to do something creative with the time and space I travel through each day. Then I gave myself more parameters: Take a picture everyday on your travel route . . .you have 5, 22o seconds between your elementary and high school classes AND 12.5 miles!!!
Thus, the beginning of the 12.5 in 5,220 project. From here on out whenever I travel the 12.5 miles between my elementary and high school assignments I will shoot one image and post it here.
Stay tuned . . . things just miiiiight get interesting . . .
Until tommorrow - Cheers.
