Tandem Journey

Renee B. is a sweet and gentle woman. I first met her on Easter of this year. Now we see each other at least two times a month for Thursday Pages and The Studio, both of which are artistic communities here at LWCC. Recently she started a blog called Tandem Journey and I'd like to share it with everyone. Please take a look.

The Studio - Wednesday, 10/20

"Happy in Blue" by Bex Czik
The Studio - LWCC's visual artists gathering is tomorrow night, Wednesday, October 20 from 7:00 - 8:30 PM in The Gallery @ Common Grounds Coffee Bar at Living Word Community Church.

Enter the coffee bar entrance, go down the hall towards auditorium, turn LEFT at the hallway. We'll be in the first room on the LEFT, room A103 E. OR, for a short cut - you can get to the room by cutting through the kitchen.

The plans for the evening are coming together as He inspires me with an idea. At this time I ask you to bring your sketchbook and pencils, or canvas and paints/brushes, or paper and pastels, etc. As the idea comes clearer, it could potentially be a pretty cool exercise. God always surprises me with ideas for the studio!

It will be great to see everyone again...

Plein Air Painting in Easton



Yeah, call me a geek…but because my last three cars have been Subaru's, I get the Subaru magazine, DRIVE. The October issue has a neat little story about Painting En Plein Air – In July, there is a festival in Easton, MD which is specifically for en plein air artists. I’d love to attend next year. (Not as an artist, but as one who walks around observing the art created by others.) We’ll drive our Subaru, of course. haha!

I hope you enjoy this article.

We meet in the large conference room across the hall from church kitchen. Do you have a writing project in the works? Do you have an idea that needs to be poured onto paper? Bring them or we'll provide you with writing prompts if you want something fresh to spur on your creativity.

Hope to see you there! Contact me, deAnn, if you have any questions.

October Inklings, At Last!

Inklings FINALLY hot off the press!
The printer and I are now BFF's. Unlike the other day, when the printer decided it wasn't going to play nice and print the October Inklings for me. But, we're all good now. So, as you can tell from the image above, you can pick up your copy of the October Inklings from the ledge in the coffee bar.

Or if you'd rather read it online, click here.
