Christmas in January

TryphenaLast week Tryphena gave a piano recital in which she played “Silver Bells” and “O Come All Ye Faithful”.  The recital was supposed to be done last month; however, because of the availability, or rather the lack of it, of the hall, it was postponed until last week.


Yesterday Tryphena and I spent a few hours together painting at The Artist In Me.  We painted Panda, and as expected, her painting came out better than mine.  🙂

My bamboo leaves were too “patterny” while hers were more natural.  We had fun!




Monarch Butterfly

Monarch ButterflyToday Tryphena and I spent the afternoon together painting.  We painted “Monarch Butterfly” at The Artist In Me, and again I conceded that hers is better then mine.  Isn’t it what we call “progressive”- the betterment of the next generation?  Like the instructor said, my brain works in a structured way and it was reflected in my painting.

The important thing is that we had fun together!  Contact Teresa Mathias at if you’d like to schedule a class.
