Check back in the next few days, we will be posting a new slide show from Marian about the November colored pencil seminar. We are filling up fast, so if you are interested, don’t delay in signing up!
Look for one later featuring the development of one of my September seminar projects.
On the road again . . . .
For the past few months, it seems we are either packing or unpacking! Early Thursday morning we will leave to go to PA for a seminar with the Mountain Laurel Decorative Painters. One of the projects I am teaching there is the Lemons and Blueberries shown above. This project has to take the prize for the most taught seminar project in my travel seminar history! I believe I could teach it in my sleep by now. I am convinced that folks like the lemons so much due to the departure from my more usual palettes to a very different one, so I am working on another painting using the same color harmony.
Earlier this week, we drew for the winner for the Dancing Violets Tray. The winner is announced below. We will be doing some sort of fun drawing again soon, so be sure you watch the web site closely during the coming weeks. If you are not receiving our newsletters, please sign up here.
Below are three of the students from the design seminar with their completed trays. Aren’t they beautiful? The trays as well as the students! I am hoping to receive more photos soon so we can add new ones every now and again.
And the Winner is . . . . . . .
The winner of the web site drawing for this lovely piece is Carolyn O'Hare from Somerset, NJ. Congratulations Carolyn! Watch the site for a new drawing soon.
