Creativity from the UK!

 Hello all--
I'm getting back in the swing of things after my move and have a little backlog of posts for you! So check back, I think I may surprise you with some of the stuff that I have planned!

So about a month ago I received a lovely email from a volunteer helper at the Hexham East First School in Northumberland. He explained that the class 1 (5-6 year olds) and class 2 (6-7 year olds) students had created some art works using some inspiration art. And, it seems, that that inspiration art was some of mine that they had found on the internet at my main art website! What an honor! I sent them a supportive letter (and would have sent them some fabric or some such but the time was short until their Art Focus Day.

Here are the main pieces of mine that they viewed:

Studies in Orange and Blue: Triptych
8” x 10.75 “ (each)
July, 2005
Private collection of Charles and Jackie Hicks

Fabric of Space-Time: #1
16" x 13.5" 
November, 2007
Currently on display at the University of Central Florida

The Transit of Venus31” x 47”

And here are the wonderful pieces of textile art that they created for Art Focus Day:

Didn't they do a great job? I was very impressed. I so wished I could have attended the Art Focus Day and seen all of these lovely pieces of art in person and met all of the children.
Thank you, Mr. Messer (volunteer helper) for contacting me and Ms. Noon (teacher) for sending the pictures for me to share.

And, of course, the very biggest of thanks to the very talented artists who created these amazing artworks!
