As the school year winds down with only two more weeks left, there is a flurry of activity and programs. Tess' high school held their arts night where we heard the choir, the jazz ensemble, and browsed a cafeteria chock full of art. Among Tess' things were these window frames she was commissioned to make for one of the teachers. The bottom one is inspired by Monet's poppies and is still a work in progress. She said there are many layers of paint upon paint and I know she's been working on these for weeks. I'm partial to the top painting because it is a scene we see here in our own county. I'm keeping an eye out for a nice, old, chipped window frame. I only hope I can afford to commission the artist.
