Zoom Room Doom

I love technology.  Honestly.  I really do.  I love the excitement and challenge of learning new programs.  I love exploring the possibilities that each new app or platform holds.  And, generally, I can figure things out fairly quickly on my own or by watching a few YouTube tutorials.  But, I must admit, lately, my enthusiasm has turned to frustration when it comes to working with Zoom. 

Painting Needfuls

I could lose myself for hours wandering the web looking for and comparing art supplies.  So many choices!  How many of us have boxes of paints, surfaces, and gadgets that seemed like a great buy at the time, only to end up collecting dust in the back of a closet?  Yep, that's me too.  But I still get as excited as a kid with a new box of crayons on the first day of school when the FedEx man drops that brown box on my doorstep.  How about you?

Treasure from the sea...

Paint with a thankful heart

watercolor-brushwork-floral-notes -laure-paillex  "The world has changed," we hear people lament. Most of us don't like change.  We like the "known", the predictable, the comfortable. It's too easy to fall into a rut of gloom and despair.

This is my happy place - colorful brushes by Laure Paillex Explore ArtWeek  #ArtWeekAtHome is the reimagined format replacing the original ArtWeek that would have featured almost 800 creative events in over 170 communities across the state, including many free events for families, children, residents, and visitors. On May 1st, originally slated for the canceled ArtWeek 2020 festival kick-off day, ArtWeek event hosts and partners will post links on social media to their online content including tours, concerts, at-home activities, or other creative programs while tagging #ArtWeekAtHome and @ArtWeekMA.
