Darcy Morbid's Heart Pendent by Rusty Harden

“Darcy Morbid's Heart" Original Art Pendant with Matching Art Card
$22 (including S&H)
1 ½“”x 1” Hand Painted Pendant & 16″ black satin cord

“It’s getting colder now and the darkness consumes me.”

I knew I was going to submit this piece into The Artist Challenge( http://www.blogger.com/www.theartistchallenge )
where the theme was, "Belief That Possesses the Mind". I based my submission on the quotation above. As beautiful as the pendent is, the darkness creeping insidiously across the heart felt a little macabre.

Talking with friends, while the television was playing in the background, I heard a character say, "I'm not really Darcy Morbid."
Having caught my attention that that would be a perfect name for the owner of my newly created heart pendent, I tell everyone of my decision. My friend corrects me by saying, "She said that she is not really dark and morbid." Too late, I already love the name even if I am a bit deaf.

I think Darcy is going to have her own line.

Tipp City Fall Class Schedule w/ Rusty Harden

Timing is everything. I had a wonderful time teaching the Watercolor Painting Workshop at Studio 14 in the spring. Evelyn Staub was pleased that the class filled up and she commented several times that I was a good instructor. While those compliments were still ringing in my ears, she invited me to teach classes at Studio 14. We worked out a summer schedule of classes for adults, teenagers, and kids. Classes grew so we added more time slots, I had the time of my life.

No one wanted it to come to an end (especially me). So Evelyn has extended the invitation to continue with teaching. So this is the new Fall Schedule:
