Progress in the Painting Therapy Group

Bruce is cranking out the boxes and inspiring us all!  This is his second finished box with a great spiral effect.  And, Stephanie has finished her first box in blue and silver.  We had five painters today!  They are amazing.

Pirate King

There will be better photos, but I can't wait to show off this awesome costume.  Chase County High School Choral Department presents Pirates of Penzance on January 25th and 26th.  That's a Monday and Tuesday to work around all the sports events, and a reschedule from the original date last October when most of the cast had the flu!  It's a funny spoof on the operetta format, with pirates who turn out to be from royalty trying to marry the many daughters of a major general.  Tough music, but they are doing a great job. "Break a leg" cast members!

First finished product from Cancer Therapy

Just a quick post while we're packing for the Safari Club convention!  It's been busy here with lots of substitute teaching, sewing costumes for the school musical...not enough painting.  The pirate king in Penzance will be awesome next week in his blue jacket with striped lining!  For now, I want you to see the first finished box by Bruce in the Cancer Painting Therapy class.  He is really taking off with this...inspiring me and the other students.  Bruce will handle the class this week, while I'm "vacationing" with the wild African animals and super hunters in Nevada.  I'm googling about art galleries in Reno right now...will definitely check out the Stremmel Gallery.  It will be a great trip...if the weather allows us to even get there!  Happy January!
