On a fabulous Sunday in Jan, Ben, Kelly, Shannon, Kim, and Jennifer joined me for a day of laughter and of fabulous creations. Everyone had a great sense of humor and made some really amazing works of art.

Benn Mann’s dark and beautiful pair of Harpies

Benn is a local artist (check his work out if your not familiar)who is know for his very bright and cheerful work. So it was extra fun to get to watch him explore some darker work.

Benn and I have joked about doing a collaborative show called “Perpetually Perky meets Dark and Twisty”.

So that wraps up Happy Harpies. I will be teaching this class again later in the year. Let me know if your interested?

I would love to take a class with you - but I live In Australia. Do you have any online classes?

Thanks for stopping by Wilma... I have not ventured into the world of online classes yet, but who know it could be on the horizon.
