I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush.
I am blessed.
Found time today to finish my first watercolor painting using my new Derwent Inktense Watercolor Blocks. My review is that these paints are fabulous. I really like the ink quality and the vivid colors. It's always so much fun to have new toys to play with.
The Flying Shoes Art Studio is owned and managed by Oklahoma, regional artist, Kristy Patterson. "My feet don't touch the ground when I am creating," Kristy claims and it is evident in her work that she soars both technically and creatively. Kristy currently teaches art at Guymon High School after twenty years spent in careers as varied as her artistic interests. Her employment has ranged from director of a residential drug rehab center to being a police woman all the while following her childhood dream of creating original works of art from her studio. Her artwork is collected and displayed throughout Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Kansas.
I know you will enjoy following her work!
