Boxer Puppy

Well, we have finally decided on a puppy that should be ready to come home with us around the end of April.  I have been longing for a new pup to have in my life since my precious Rocco passed away in January.  The puppies we are considering were born on March 17th, and in this photo their eyes are still closed.   We will be choosing from these male pups.  Aren't they precious??  Any other boxer lovers out there?


Looking for models!

My first Open Studio night is coming up April 15th from 7-9pm, and we are so excited to be offering a great opportunity for some independent work by local artists in a grand studio setting.  This evening is going to be life drawing.  I am seeking a model for this event.  Experience preferrable, but not required.  You would be needed for about 2.5 hours.  Please contact me via email or by visiting the studio.  Pay is included.

Interested in this classy, tasteful event? Call the studio to reserve your spot with $45.  This includes a model fee.  Perhaps you will accomplish a beautiful pastel like this one that my sister Claire did some time back.  Isn't it beautiful?

The News!

As some of you know from reading my blog, exciting changes have been in the works at Carole Foret Fine Art. While I turn my focus full time to my painting and teaching workshops, I am announcing Leslie Willard as the official photographer at Carole Foret Fine Art, operating through her business name Leslie Adair Photography and Design. We are both thrilled and eager to focus and use our individual talents and abilities! Leslie has been training with me to step into this position for over a year now, and I know that she will be stepping into a well-suited position--a dream for her! To celebrate launching Leslie Adair Photography and Design, I'm inviting everyone to a "Launch Party" celebrating Leslie's business opening. It will be held here at my studio this Friday night! There will be good music, good food, and a drawing for a FREE photo shoot with Leslie! I hope to see all my favorite faces there and feel free to bring friends!

Takin' a Break!

I'm headed out of town to Valdosta, Georgia with my band, Sister Grace for the next couple of days. We are having a concert, sharing our music ministry Tuesday night. Please pray for us, if you will, that we will glorify God through our music...After that, I will be meeting my family for a much-needed vacation at the beach. Have a blessed Holy Week, and I'll return by Easter Sunday and begin a new week that Monday. I'll leave you with links to Sister Grace's site and music.


Rick and Bubba Show!

I am just sharing with you a fun secret! I am now a member of the X-treme Club on the Rick & Bubba website, and it is already paying off. I heard part of the show last week when they were reading to the World's Largest Classroom for Read Across America Week. They chose the book Green Eggs and Ham--my favorite childhood book! It was so funny--the part that I heard. I missed part of it getting ready and off to work, but I was so hoping that my daughter's class was tuning in and wanted to call her teacher, etc. but was moving too fast. Well, Sarah told me when I picked her up from school that they indeed tuned in to it and loved it!

With the X-treme Club membership, I was able to find that clip in the archives and enjoy it all over again plus hear the parts I missed. What I love about the comedic duo is that they are indeed funny, but most of all, they are mighty men of God--it's just simply part of who they are and many days part of the show.  Do you listen to Rick and Bubba? If you haven't--you absolutely must!  I listen to them on WQRV 100.3 The River.  They rock!


Girlfriend Paint Party!

Tuesday night, a group of fun ladies had me over for a Paint Party (a "GIRLFRIEND" one) in Huntsville, and we had a blast! Michele had a spread of great food and wine and had set us up in her beautiful dining room with protective plastic on her table and floor, and the we were free to create without much worry about messing anything up. I hauled in my tub of supplies, and then we were ready! Our subject we chose to paint was some cool martini glasses and olives that we added from our imagination to complete our paintings. I loved working with these lively gals--they just seemed to melt into the "therapy" and relaxation that creating can bring! Thank you Michele, Candy, Susan, Sonya, Courtney, Elizabeth and Anne!

If you are interested in getting a group together for a fun time with wine, paint--girlfriends, couples, etc., just call the studio and we can get you on the calendar!  Download the Paint Party PDF for all the info....
