Gepetta's workshop

Things are moving right along here at the little factory of one, I'm making samples, patterns and kits for my fall classes. can't wait to see you all and catch up. I have the best job in the world! 
I'm having a lot of fun with the marionette, learning and improving as I go.
 When I was a child, I had a set of Pelham marionettes that I loved, many moves and life changes and they are long gone and much missed. 
           Some years ago when I lived in Canada, I found at my favorite shop in Vancouver, "Salamagundi", a cardboard box containing a Pelham puppet kit with instructions! Many more moves and life changes and it's still with me you can see the instructions on my messy desk.

Little Red

yesterday I finished this little red riding hood tableau for the lovely Victoria.

Watercolor Class

Watercolor techniques class is tomorrow so today I will spend every moment preparing and packing up the car. I love to teach this class. People who have been interested in watercolor and intimidated by the technical side get to work hands on with the best quality materials and feel the magic happen for themselves. I teach this way because like most creative types I understand better when I do, also I just totally love it when people go OOH! and WOW! the way they do when color moves them, as it's supposed to do.
