Fall is in the Air

Hello Fall image Laure Paillex Art and Design blog post 2019September has arrived with its promise of cooler weather, colorful autumn hues, and all the delights of the fall season! 

It's time to get back to school for the kids, and back to art and painting classes for the young at heart!  Here in the Cape Cod and southern New England area there are so many exciting local and regional arts and crafts events being offered, it's a challenge to choose among them.  I'm sure it's the same in your neck of the woods, too - harvest fests, arts and crafts fairs, vintage and antique shows, gallery openings, walking tours, and don

Summer is for Painting

Laure Paillex  acrylic painting class at ECHO wareham MATuesday, June 4th was the first day of our Summer 2019 Painting Classes at ECHO in Wareham, MA.  I'm delighted that both the morning and afternoon classes were filled with happy, enthusiastic painters who worked on projects that included mermaid ornaments, personalized local village signboards, a small furniture piece and a vintage picnic basket!  Every one took time to browse the gift shop to appreciate the handmade works of other local artists on display.  Inspiration was everywhere!

The Big Dig

Work is progressing slowly but steadily on the Big Dig - the replacement of our septic system. The process began last August when we decided it was time to put our home on the market and down-size to a more efficient living space. It came as an utter shock to me to find that our septic system failed the Title V inspection!

2018 Weekly Studio Classes Delayed

I've been having this recurring dream lately: I'm in the studio setting up for class and everyone begins to arrive - but I'm not ready! The tables are missing, the lights won't go on... and then the floor disappears and turns to dirt... But everyone keeps on painting and asking questions and needing help and wanting coffee an cake!
