Here's my other sketch from yesterday's visit to the Birch Aquarium in LaJolla. The leafy sea dragon is the absolute coolest, most fascinating animal I've ever seen!! I drew both of these while they swam around the water at the aqaurium, so I really had to watch them carefully. I tell ya, that sea dragon is unbelievable! I can't wait to go back and show my husb. Have any of you ever seen one?
Other news, I was accepted and will be teaching this year at Art Unraveled in August in Phoenix, Arizona. The schedule isn't up yet on the website, but will be soon. I'll be teaching an all day class called "TWO art quilts TWO" on August 4 and an evening session, August 5, called "Sketching and Watercolor in your Illustrated Journal."
Since I'm in the newsy mode, here are two movies I recommend. The Namesake is one everyone will love and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly will take your breath away by showing you the epitome of one man's perseverance and inner strength.
Lastly, my paper and organza quilt entitled "Ralph's Letters" will be on display at The Front Porch Gallery, 2903 Carlsbad Blvd, Carlsbad, CA January 19-March 16, with a reception on Sat. January 19, noon-3.
