Art Reception:  25 May ~ Orlando, Florida
Gymnast marble gets some new colorful surroundings
*  Texas for bronze foundry work

Dear Art Lover,

     Breaking News:  exhibit in Orlando, Florida with the opening soon!  Scroll down for that info and invitation.

     First, another painting workshop.  The one last Saturday was a hit, with 11 total students, and THREE pairs of mothers with daughters.  We all really enjoyed the Mother's Day Tea with flower painting and some art history thrown in there.  Here is a still shot from the videos I took during the workshop.

    Next workshop is in CARY, North Carolina:  Your choice to paint in the medium you prefer (bring what you like) and choose at least one of 8 different flower images to use as reference (I bring those).  I will explain the centuries-old Atelier method of transferring compositions and some of the visual artist's alphabet tools at your disposal.  Any style of painting is welcome because you are the artist, you are the boss!

Floral painting workshop, Saturday, 20 May, 1:30 - 6 p.m.
hosted by the Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild in Cary.  Classes taught at:
Cary Quilting Company
935 N. Harrison Avenue
Cary, NC

*  Contact me at if you would like the supply/materials list before the class starts.  Just pay when you arrive.  Beginners welcomed and encouraged.

Gymnast marble gets some new colorful surroundings

     The historical home behind my marble sculpture, the 'Gymnast' in Sanford, Florida, is getting a new paint job, a new palette, as I write.  The Palms of Sanford is owned by my Superwoman sister Amber and her charming and hard-working husband Alex.

What new colors would you think look wonderful in this three-story family home?  

     Here is the "before" image of the Gymnast on long-term exhibit before the paint job.  Stay tuned for the "after" shots.  It is so fun how color combinations really affect the voice of a space!

     The day after the artist's reception at the Quantum Leap Winery in Orlando, mentioned above, I will be returning to central Texas.  In case you have been following the portrait commission that I have been working on for months now (see my YouTube channel), this is the stage in which I will do some of the wax work at the bronze foundry.

     I anticipate four to five solid working days there before I must return east.  I doubt that I will have much free time, but in the case that I might, contact me if you would like to get together.   I miss so many of my friends in Texas and it has been four years since being there due to Covid.  

     In any event, Happy Memorial Day weekend soon in the US.  And enjoy May if you happen to hang your hat somewhere beyond those borders.

     Thank you for your being a part of my artistic journey, as well as for your friendship.

Yours truly,
Kelly Borsheim

P.S.  This art newsletter is dedicated to my father, who just passed his 80th birthday.  I was fortunate enough to be able to share that with him.  His passion was flying.  While he worries about how my passion can make for a healthy life, he still shows his support in so many ways.  He worries, he questions, he suggests, and he loves me, despite my flaws and struggles at times.  I love you, Dad!
