In sixteen short days we will be leaving for HOOT. Thanks to some excellent preparation help from Barbara Moore, Judy Motley, Jackie and Robert, all class preparation was completed about 10 days ago...even my demonstration surfaces. Now all there is to be done is pricing, packing, and traveling! (Did I really say “all?”)

Summer was slow arriving, but once it came, it hit with a vengeance. Thankfully we do have intermittent periods of cooler weather. We are already looking forward to fall! It has been a busy summer with painting for the fall seminar, HOOT preparations, travel seminars, and also completing a new Classic Santa, Shepherd Santa. I hope each of you have had a wonderful summer with family, friends, travel, and of course, painting!

If you are looking for a special painting treat, consider joining us for the September seminar in Williamsburg. There are still some seats available. The seminars are an in depth painting experience offering new projects, composition information, and new techniques. Everyone has a great time visiting old friends and meeting new painters. The projects are discussed in the Seminar Updates below. 

Check below to see the new items that have just been released and also items that will be released on August 11. Many of you have been calling and writing that you are eagerly awaiting some of these projects. I hope these will kick off a great new round of painting for you!

E-Packets Tips

The major benefits of purchasing e-packets are the savings of postage and time, and they can be delivered almost instantly. Wonderful if you are overseas or have to worry
about customs. However, the end result will only be as good as the attention you put into printing it out.  While regular, inexpensive copy paper is good enough for emails, recipes and other text content, good images require a little bit more. Here are a few points to consider:
  • Purchase a good quality premium or Bright White paper for the brand of printer you have. [e.g. HP- HP Premium paper, Canon - Canon Paper] Matching the paper to your printer brand usually produces better results. It doesn’t have to be photo paper. Make sure you have enough ink in your cartridge before you start.
     
  • Learn how to print only the pages you want. Don’t just automatically hit print.
     
  • Take a moment to look through each page on a print preview and decide if you need them all, then make your selection.
     
The e-packets on our site are set up in the following order: Instruction pages, pattern pages, any color worksheets or step by step color worksheets and then color photos. To get the most out of the photos, you should print them onto a good quality photo paper. The color worksheets may be printed on good quality paper or photo paper, it is your choice.
