“The last time my husband and I actually ate out at a restaurant before quarantine, we were at Rooster Creek having lunch. We saw a long table full of older ladies in glorious attire. They, I discovered were part of the” Red Hats Society” group. I spied two friends of mine and snapped a picture. I just had to make a sculpture to honor their joy.”
Thank you for all you are doing. Thanks”
– Hilda Vandergriff
“Having fun with watercolors, pastels and acrylics. Miss seeing you all. Thank you for keep us connected.” – Paula Frojae
“What do artists do during the virus? Paint!”
“Safe Harbor” tiny little figure in a big dark world offering a blessing.
“Here’s a new quarantine painting. The was a sole goose all alone in the estuary about a month ago. He’d fly up and down the creek, back and forth. It seemed like he was building his strength and I assumed he was injured when the flock left in winter. (I don’t know much about birds, so I freely admit this is my own interpretation.) About a 10 days ago, a second goose arrived. They stayed close together, flying and feeding, sitting on the marshes. I haven’t seen them in 3 days. Covid-19 gave me the time to watch him and be inspired by his magnificent presence.”
-Bobbye & Kim Thompson
Thank you to all of our participating Artists. We look forward to seeing what else you all create during your shelter at home!
STAY HAPPY, HEALTHY, AND CREATIVE
Last week we created 250 gift bags for SLO County children in need
We donated a variety of papers, markers, pencils and crayons, and we’d like to thank the following individuals and companies for their contributions:
Local Artist Nicki Lenore for donating her amazing SLO-themed coloring books
Ali at Frameworks located on Marsh Street in SLO for cutting hundreds of pieces of colorful matboard for the kits
Savoir Faire and Strathmore Papers for their exceedingly generous donations of paper and colored pencil sets
We are grateful that we were able to offer help – we may not have masks or food, but we hope the gift bags will brighten the days of these children.
Here are a few free printable line drawings by Nicki Lenore that you can print out and color in at home! http://www.nickilenore.com/printables.html
