Honorable Mention!

John and I were walking into the Atlanta Artists Center Holiday party and show when my friend, Pat, stopped me and said, "Sharon!  You've won an Honorable Mention!"  What a great start to a party.

The painting is called "Out in the Sun" and is done entirely with a palette knife, which is pretty messy but a lot of fun.

Something Made of Nothing

I am really intrigued when I find something that is made from things that would ordinarily be ignored or thrown away.  I thought I was so clever when I made a fence for my garden out of sticks from the beach.  And then I found this...
This is an elephant made entirely of beach wood.  It was made by a young woman who graduated from Block Island School and it was her senior project.

Obviously, I am going to have to spend more time on the beach!
