I've been spending a lot of time at Curtis Memorial Library lately! For eight hours straight on Friday, April 14th, I was painting in the library's lobby, raising money for Curtis. Rather than repeating myself, here's a link to the blog post I wrote for Curtis Creative Spaces about it: http://curtiscreativespaces.com/winging-it/

Curtis Memorial Library also had me back on Thursday evenings in April for a repeat of "Playing With Paint," and once again, it was a blast! Here's a link to the blog post I wrote for Curtis Creative Spaces about it (hmm...is there an echo in here?): http://curtiscreativespaces.com/playing-with-paint-part-two/. I'm happy to say that so far, the feedback has been positive, and I'd like to share a quote from one of the class participants, Betty McNally: "Mike and I loved the class. We will cherish the memory."
The McNallys and their Pollock-inspired paintings!
Speaking of repeat performances, on Wednesday, April 26th, I spent an hour painting faces at the Gelato Fiasco for the Brunswick Area Teen Center "Scoop-a-Thon". It's hard to believe, but this is the fifth year I've participated in this community event! Here are a couple of pictures of some of the many faces I saw that day:
a colorful kitty!

One more thing before I end this blog post: I'd like to thank the lovely and talented Erica Kingston
eat the rainbow!
