Please Read This Important Announcement

Please read this important announcement.

It has become necessary for me to close down the blog part of  the Harmony Fine Arts website. I have previously shared about our website getting hacked and it has happened again this week. We are going to completely revamp the website and for now this means taking the blog down and keeping the Harmony Fine Arts store open on a limited basis.

The timing cannot be worse for me and my family. We are in the middle of taking care of aging parents and that doesn’t leave much room for working on websites but we will do our best to get things cleaned up quickly.

I am sad about this decision but hope that you understand. I have loved sharing our homeschooling life and our post-homeschooling life with you dear readers. But, for some reason there is a hacker that is intent on putting malware on my WordPress blog. For the sake of all of you who have been reading here, I decided for our internet safety to shut that part down until further notice.

I can still conduct business if you would like to purchase an art plan. We will be putting up a simple store page for you to use that will be completely safe for you to use. If you would like to purchase an art plan directly from me, just email me with the year you want and we will get you an invoice from Paypal.

I haven’t given up hope that I will be able to get another website up before the summer but there are no guarantees.

Email me anytime at [email protected]

Thank you to all of my loyal readers for your support during this difficult time.


Sketch Tuesday – Claws


This week’s assignment is due Monday, October 8, 2018.

Sketch something with claws.

I have been reading a lot of John Muir’s writings lately and it has me thinking about being in the woods. Our recent camping trip was a reminder that we have bears in the woods! I am not so afraid of bears but mountain lions are something that really make me nervous…we have bears and mountain lions in our area. So, we will dedicate this slideshow to all the critters that have claws. Have fun drawing one for Sketch Tuesday!


Thank you to all of the Sketch Tuesday sketchers…here is your slideshow!
