We had another BIG group of young painters yesterday for our Kid’s Painting Class. They did an excellent job painting “A Walk in the Snow” while learning about color mixing and composition. Nice work young artists! Our next Kid’s Painting Class is on Saturday, February 18th from 10-11:15 am. Get more info and register here.

This group reached out to me on Thursday about a private party on Friday on the off chance that I’d be available. Luckily, I was! What a fun birthday party! Nice work girls and thanks for the laughs.

Sadie Marie

A commission I’m delivering this week. This was Sadie Marie — my friend Jean just lost her at almost 19 years old. She asked me to paint her portrait and I loved doing it. What a sweet old girl.

There is just something about the Wonky Windmill pattern that I love. And as usual I pulled a bunch of different fabrics from the scrap box. (I have got to get rid of some of this scrap fabric!) I am happy with the way it turned out and it was really fun to make.

A few weeks ago I got a call from a man from New Jersey looking to set up a private session for he and his wife. They were going to be in the area to celebrate her birthday. We had our session last night and they painted these companion paintings. Great job!!! They have lots of fun things planned for their weekend. Lincoln and I enjoyed getting to know them. I think they enjoyed their evening too.

Calico Cats

Just completed this little “Calico Cats” quilt. I love a scappy quilt.

Lots of great paintings coming up at The Studio. Check them out! Invite a friend and click here to register and come join us for the fun at The Studio.

I continue to be amazed at the gorgeous pet portraits that people paint at The Studio. These are terrific! In just three hours they come up with these beauties. We will be painting pets again on Saturday, March 4th at 3 pm. Click here for more information and to register for the next session.

Dianne attends our weekly art classes and paints gifts for family members and friends. She just completed this very unusual one that features a Civil War flag. She wanted to include the story about the flag so she painted part of the canvas and mod podged the story. It turned out great…and I know the receipient will love it.

Leslie’s Tree

Leslie finished her amazing tree yesterday at our weekly Wednesday morning art class. She brought in a photo she had taken of her favorite tree that she passed each day on her way to work. She did a great job capturing this amazing tree. Why don’t you join us for weekly art classes. We are open to beginners who have never painted and want to learn and advanced painters who want to improve their skills. We meet on Wednesdays at 10:30 or 5:30 or Thursdays at 2 pm.
