Self Potraits

This picture says it all, but please allow me to share with you how wonderful it made me feel and by these sweet faces and super work done by three of my budding young Artist Students holding up their Self Potraits. Now to start, they did these wonderful works in only one hour and yes ,we have been known to chit chat somewhat, during our sessions. What I did was have a mirror in front of each young Lady and had them look at themselves , at the shape of their faces ,noses etc. I wanted them to study their reflections.This was their first time with water color and I was constantly reminding them to work quickly so the class was in a buzz from the get go. We had fun ! The result is as you see, Fantastic!!Now I was so impressed I had to share this work with an Artist Friend of our's from Vermont who Summers here in Liverpool William Hays     William and his Lovely creative wife Patricia join our charming Village of Liverpool N.S. every June to September and I do recommend you drop into his Gallery on Main Street across  from the Perkin's House here in Liverpool. William who once you see his art, and you will be impressed, answered me back regarding the Girl's and their self potraits and I am shareing his comment here with you ..........(."Well I don’t need to tell you that I’m quite charmed by the self portraits. They absolutely must keep them for when they are much older. They are not a bad representation of who each of the little girls is now." )....I agree with him , to be young and to have no such words in their vocabulary as "we can't do that !". This is what I enjoy with what I am doing, and that brings me to another very special day in our lives recently. We did a Multi Curtural event at Queens Manor with our drums which I have already shared a picture of on Face book. Again, same as with the Children, we come to a station in our lives when we let our guards down and again enjoy doing what makes us furfilled and not so concerned in and with what People think.
We must remember ,we need only to impress ourselves at the end, we live in these skins and must try and find what we feel makes us bloom. For we are all roses in our own rights.
Take another look at these faces and understand what I am saying. Isn't Life grand? Even on a bad day , try and make it better, except that smile or hug or just a simple nod from somebody. It works!
This weekend Privateer Days here in Liverpool you will find us on Main Street on Friday working with the Kid's , lots going on and on Sunday I will be in the park with so many more selling our wares and having many laughs, meeting new and rekindling old, Privateer Days in Liverpool is the place to be this Canada Day weekend.
