Nancy is just a ball of energy and I loved it. There were fifteen in our class and she ran from person to person offering instruction and wiping things with her finger, lol. She started with a demo, I have included some photos of that. She started with a paper towel, it was pretty much an abstract painting to start, I think that a great way to end up with a loose painting. We painted on linen panels and though I normally use stretch canvases that may have converted me. More expensive but I like the way you can wipe paint off of them. I came home with six practice paintings, here are five of them, the one with the four small paintings took maybe ten minutes each, all of the others are about an hour. I made notes after the workshop so I wouldn't forget anything. I have some pet commissions to finish and then I'll be doing still life's and putting some of this into practice. Totally loved the experience and I'm hoping to get her to Cincinnati to teach a workshop.

This week we camped in Holmes county Ohio, it's an area with lots of wonderful Amish farms. I think I got some great reference photos that I'm looking forward to painting, watch for those.
Thanks for coming by

Hi there! I just completed this pet portrait, it is 6" x 6" and a commission. It's drying and the client loves it, such a fun painting to do with his nose so up close. I would love to paint your pet, would make a wonderful Christmas gift? I can paint this size for $65 or an 8" x 10" for $100. I just love painting animals, we so love our furry babies don't we? Email me at email@example.com and we can work out the details.

Hi, this is a work in progress. Oil on a 18" x 24" deep canvas. A larger piece for me, I am considering entering it in a competition to hang in a local hospital for a year. Fun to paint a bit larger for a change.
