Family Reunions

I just had to share this "self-portrait" taken by my lovely little niece. She's our resident photographer. We had a family reunion for my Mom's side of the family and wow was it hot that day! That of course didn't stop this littly sweety from teaching her Aunt Kim some frisby moves.

Get the Book!!

So, you've taken one of my classes...or another class from a Certified Ross Instructor and you want to try a painting on your own. Well...GO FOR IT!! Once you've taken the class, much of the technique that is skipped over in the book, you get at the class. Try it! You can always, re-use your canvas if you don't like the results the first time. (Ask me if you need some advice on how to do that.) Believe me, practice will make this technique work for you. Don't be afraid to go for it!

I am so PROUD of my last class!!!

We did a seascape this past Saturday. Seascapes, even the Bob Ross ones, can be very difficult. Everyone did fantastic! I'm so proud!!! Thanks so much everyone in both the afternoon and morning class. I had such fun! Keep on painting!

We're Over Half Way Thru 2010 !!!

I can't believe that we're already into the first week of August! I feel like I just got back from Florida a few weeks ago. I'm blessed to be able to spend time down in Naples Florida (where this photo of Tom was taken) during the winter months. I love my Kentucky home, but I've gained such an appreciation for the warm climates, beautiful gardens, and lovely people of Naples. Many of my paintings take inspiration from this beautiful area.
