"It’s Okay to Call Myself an Artist…and Other Newsworthy Items"

“You’re the best!  I have taken other workshops from other teachers but have learned the most from you—learned not to be afraid to try something I wouldn’t have tried before.”
“Warm, fuzzy feeling during workshop”
“…it’s okay to call myself an artist”
“Not holding back–giving all you know generously”
Comments overheard during this workshop, but below, probably the best….
“If Ann can walk and I can see, we’re heading to Atlanta for Dreama’s workshop.”
And now you know why I love to do this..:))!
16 paintings in 40 minutes…not counting the dance moves in between.
Painting is JOY!

Getting in the mix of things!

Phyllis the mouse did make a debut appearance at the Lexington, KY workshop and was quite the celeb.  Eddie, of course, is holding out for bigger venues and more money.  And a private dressing room.  It’s Ed, what else did you expect?

Gratitude Sundae: all the good stuff I’m grateful for, with whipped cream & a cherry on top

Gratitude Sundae–Day 14 of #30Thanks

Grateful for Ugg knockoff boots that keep my feetie’s sooo warm.  Big bathtubs with loads of hot water and bubbles.  Friends who paint silly paintings of a mouse named Phyllis (see below).  Hugs from people the very first time I meet them.  Sincere thanks.  Modern Family episodes to make me laugh.  New music, which at the moment is Elton John and Leon Russell’s collaboration.  Sisters who are always there when I need them.  All the love I feel at my workshops.  Late night bowls of cereal laced with bananas and strawberries fixed by my guy.  Inspiring books.  So many amazing friends.  A slice of homemade lemon pound cake.  Heated seats.  Bold coffee with lots of real cream and sugar.  Good eyes to behold the beauty in each day. The ring tone that says my girl is calling.  Hope.  New brushes.  Quietness.  
For this and so, so much more I am grateful.
By Artist Anna Daniel Hall (See previous post)

Ann painted this today at the workshop.  Notice mouse door to right of jar.  Possible names for the painting??
“The Dilemma”
“It Looked Smaller at the Store”
“Now What?”

    I enjoy your paintings so much an love the mice inserts. Thank you for your talk radio show – found it today through another blogger, Carrie Waller, and took frantic notes listening to your tremendously helpful segment, “Who’s Still Buying Art.” The workshop looks fun. I think my friend, Nancy Goldman, attended one of your workshops and called it “the best ever”! She’s an active artist, so that’s praise indeed!ReplyCancel

    What a PACKED post! Beautiful testaments from your group, Dreama, really. And the workshop looked so fun! I also like the title “It Looked Smaller In The Store” – because everything now is so supersized, and my own home is so …. ‘regular’! We’ve done this with furniture – we won’t even talk about the wall-sized TV that once we got IN the house, we resolved never to try to take it OUT… xoxoReplyCancel
