20190521_163250.jpg I brought my Garden Princess in for a make-over.  She’s looking better. (You can read about her creation here.)  I didn’t take her in over the winter so she was a little worn but now she’s good as new.  And since we have an upcoming workshop for making these cuties I wanted her to look her best.  Why don’t you join us on Saturday, June 22nd at 2 pm to make one for your flower or vegetable garden.  They add a splash of color and whimsey to every garden.  Click here to learn more and register.

20190517_154048.jpgWe used palette knives to paint these beautiful apple blossoms over the last week or so with our international students.  We found that painting with a palette knife is harder than it looks.  Nice work ladies.

Happy Creek in Plein AirA few weeks ago we painted down by Happy Creek en plein air (outside in open air).  It was a fun morning and I got a good start to a little landscape.  (See that post here.) Yesterday I got around to finishing this one.  And we will be offering it as a Paint Party on Tuesday, June 4th at 6 pm.  Click here to register.
