Our Hearts are Smiling

A few months ago I did the commission above for a collector who teaches art at Oratory Prep, an all boys school. I wrote a fairly detailed blog because I knew her students would be following the progress. If you’d like to see the step-by-step of A Blaze of Red CLICK HERE. Today we received the coolest email from Susan. Several of the boys in her art class decided to copy one of my paintings, Secret Cove, from our tabletop book.

Stephen working on the beach. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it!

Jack and I are so impressed with the efforts of these talented young artists. Susan also sent several comments from her students that made our hearts smile. We want to extend a big Texas thank you to her and her class for sharing. How exciting! I hope we will get to see more. Hugs, Mikki Senkarik

    Oh Mikki and Jack… This has been the BEST art lesson for so many reasons. I feel so lucky to have this wonderful connection to you and know it will be just the beginning. The boys just loved your paintings : the outstanding compositions, use of color, etc. you have no idea how much you inspired us all!

    There will be more, I have a senior who is interested in architecture painting another piece… I’ll take pictures as he goes along….
    Thanksgiving comes in so many ways… we are all so blessed!
