I cannot believe that its already the end of May! My month of May Days have seen a lot of activities and I still have more to do!
Early in the month there were so many details to keep me on my toes. There were watercolor classes in full swing on Mondays, Tuesday Mornings and Tuesday Evenings plus a drawing and sketching class on Thursday evening. I love being busy but I should know by now that when starting up classes they should be on a staggering start up basis! I had two groups of intermediate painters, one beginning painter and one beginning drawing class student. All needed my immediate attention and unfortunately the beginners began to suffer apparently (since they both dropped out).
Breathing did not become easier because I was gearing up for some non-art related commitments at the same time. Fundraising activities for my P.E.O. group's scholarship program and also planning for the June P.E.O. Statewide Convention in Grants Pass has taken more time that I expected.

Lastly as of May 31st I have joined Art du Jour Gallery, an artist co-op, in downtown Medford. This required that I gather some paintings to be juried as appropriate for the gallery. The two watercolors posted above are now hanging in Art du Jour Gallery, along with two other paintings.
There are 18 other artist from the greater Rogue Valley area in this co-op. Be sure to drop into Art du Jour Gallery, 213 E. Main Street to see some of my artwork there. The Third Friday Art Walk is coming up on June 15th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Stop by and say hello!
