This photo is from the second (3pm) class on Saturday the 23rd. You guys did amazing...but you wore me out! I was exhausted when I got home as I'm sure many of you were. Closest to us in the photo is young Makayla and this was her first mountain painting. Isn't she doing amazing work?! Congrats to all who attended and next class is August 6th. Whew! That should give me just enough time to recover!! Happy painting!

Blue Ribbon...

This was my entry in the fair this year. I got a blue ribbon! (Wehoo!) To encourage more of my students to enter paintings at the local fair next year, I'm thinking about having a bit of a competition. Maybe something like you get a free or discounted class if you can beat me. There was not nearly enough competition this year and I would like to boost it up a bit. How cool would that be if one of my students beat me! I'm just mulling it around for now. Happy Painting!

Great class this past Saturday.....

Wonderful job everyone...and of course I didn't take photos again! I get to talking so much at the end of both classes I end up forgetting. We had some wonderful waterfalls leave the building that day and you should be very proud!!!

This is a photo of the next painting for July 23rd. It's a 16 x 20 inch size, so you'll need a bigger frame than normal if you've signed up.

Thanks everyone again for a great class and Happy Painting!!!

Preparing for Saturday...

Saturday is just around the corner and both classes are full!! If you're on the wait list and I have an opening, be looking for a call or email usually on Thursday or Friday. I've already started getting canvas prepped and can't wait to get painting with you!!

A few of you have been asking me to do one of the Bob Ross Barns. Well, here's my first attempt at this one, which may turn into a class. I'm not a huge fan of the Bob Ross Buildings as many of you know, but I want you guys to be able to paint these if you so wish. This barn looks more like the ones we have around here which is why I chose it. I need to work a few "bugs" out yet, but no too bad for the first attempt. Happy Painting everyone!!!
