I hope you are doing well today.

The above blue pages are from a “messy journal” that I’ve been slowly working on inspired by Kara Kramer’s lessons in the Words and Pictures class. Acrylic paints are not my first medium, and I’ve been trying to teach myself to love them, but I am a very slow learner on this one.

Last Friday, June 19th — “Juneteenth” — was our 28th wedding anniversary (Steve and me). We had a really good day!

Studio Update: Many of you have reached out with suggestions for black artist-teachers and I have had four enjoyable conversations so far. Anita was back in the studio on Wednesday to finish filming her new watercolor class, which we now plan to run in September. And look for details next week for a new 3-week class with me in July. Hint: There will be guest artists! The Best of 365 will begin next Wednesday (just $15 for 3 months of prompts!), and mark your calendars for this year’s free Kids Art Week: July 27-31, 2020.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a good weekend!
