Friday art exhibit~


I've recently learned a bit about an amazing lady named Tasha Tudor.
(You can learn more here-http://www.tashatudorandfamily.com/)

Sure-I know- you have all known about her for a long time!!! I admit to being a bit out of "the know"- but in my case it's better late than never!!!!
This summer a good friend introduced me to watercolor painting and I just love it!!! What does that have to do with Tasha???????
Unlike me, she was born to a heritage of art and a "leg up" so to speak, in the world of drawing,painting and sculpting. But looking at her art was inspiring!
In addition to her art she was called a "master of rusticity" living as much as possible, true to old ways.
I love that title-"Master of Rusticity"-
I think I'll start on my degree in Rusticity!!!!!I already have a few credits ,I think!
Her original art was a great treat-learning a bit about her has been an adventure and such an encouragement to me, to put to use some of the old ways-if only to say,"I've done that before".
Now if only I could get that gardening part down!!!! Maybe by the time I am 80 I'll get some of it done!

She was one of my favorite ladies to read about and see her work. I wish I could have her gardens.

Master of Rusticity is a fine degree to get! How are those feathered ladies doing? And gardening is a lifelong education so you don't have to worry about mastering it...because you'll have no choice if you stick with it. :0)

Have a grand week,

I have loved Tasha Tudor since I saw a show on PBS about how she lived.
