Monday Paint classes ~
Today in both classes I taught the art of faux finishing.

We painted

wood grain


Frottage - (similar to ragging)

Black Granite





Green Granite

This was my morning crew ~ from L to R

Alice, Doriann, Nicole, and Jane

The evening class from L to R

Marilyn, Barb, Kim, Lisa & Ellen's art

Remember last week when I forgot my camera ~ well Nicole took photos for me with her camera and sent them to me. I could not for the life of me get them to crop on my photo program because they way in which they were sent so here they are ~ background and all.
Fall Scene Wall hanging class






Tomorrow I will have a 3 hour paint class using the new Plaid High Definition paints. They are acrylic made to look like Oils with all the dimension and sheen you get with oil painting. We are painting birch trees and I'm really excited about this class.

Some of you have been kind enough to ask about an online class. I'm trying to work out the logistics of it all but think soon - possibly October sometime I'll do a blog paint class and once I get it worked out will invite you guys to come and paint "online" with me!

I'm off to go bowl this morning - didn't do so well last week ~ 132, 151, 147 ~ something like that. Hope today is better and will of course share those scores with ya in tomorrows post.

Have a fabulous TUESDAY!

okay, you need a leash for that camera so you don't forget it! It's hard to see the paintings with no closeups! I took a picture of my moonflower last night, and hope it came out okay...it was so beautiful and is a full 6 inches across...

Those are incredible!! Teach me! I can do basic faux but you have some really beautiful techniques. I love the wood grain, the malachite, all the marbles, oh heck, they're all great!
