Mark Menendez


We had a nice birthday celebration for Mark at the Craft Collection in Waynesville where we take classes. We purchased a peanut butter cake from Whitman's and it turned out to be wonderful. The icing was peanut butter tasting with fudgey iceing on top BUT it wasn't so rich as it sounds. Just right. :) Mark is a wonderful instructor and we wanted to celebrate him on his special day. He's so easy going and patient and has become a good friend to all of us. He even had Bill drawing his motorcycle and painting but he hasn't made it back to class to finish it. Then my daughter, Angie, went to a class and it changed her whole mind on her ability to draw and paint. I had a group of women from my half century group that went to a class with me and we learned to use colored pencils and we all made very presentable little chickadees. :) Oh, and Rebecca my niece took a class there with me on Acrylics and we had so much fun. So, he's getting to know my whole family and my good friends as well. :) He turned fifty-three on the 6th. Happy Birthday Mark!

How nice that you were able to make a special celebration for Mark's birthday. He seems to be a very special teacher to so many you know.

Ah yes, I DO remember the chickadee! LOL.

I'd love to take a class with Mark someday or someone like him - have no confidence at all regarding drawing. You have a gift for celebrating people.

what fun you are having Judy! And how lucky Mark is to know YOU and your family/friends. I want to come take a class too.

I knew about your class, Judy, but somehow I missed the fact that you have so many family and friends involved with this too. I'll bet Mark was delighted with his b'day surprise.

I keep checking this blog for updates. I hope I will find one soon. I miss them.
