Drawing class was cancelled last week because of the blizzard, but tonight we had class and I would be lying if I told you it's easy. I'm actually feeling super frustrated and I don't know if it's me or the instructor who has never taught before. All the other students are frustrated too, so I'm just guessing it's a combination of instructor and the fact that drawing is hard! Our instructor did ask us to check out Gustave Courbet who is a french painter. I was not familiar with his work and google images rocks! Thought this one was particularly interesting titled The Shaded Stream at the Puits-Noir, ca. 1860-65.

Yep, it's true - all the snow that was predicted to come did indeed arrive. We were still digging out from the storm from last Saturday and then we got 17 inches more yesterday. Whew! They are saying we have another storm on the way next week too. All I can say is that this is more snow than we ever experienced in all the years we lived in Cleveland where you get lake effect snow!
I feel really badly because the Buyers Market of American Craft show started today and I took this year off from the show and found out that only one artist made it to philly to set up the entire ISGB booth - poor Beth! If my leg wasn't broken I would be down there helping her. I'm hoping the other artists can fly in tomorrow, but if not I may still try to hobble down on the weekend to help her out. It's a grueling long show and I only hope that the buyers are not scared off by the storm, but my guess is that they will be:( so sad!
