Brenda's Banter . . . .
Though we have had wildly fluctuating temperatures, winter is still with us...but spring has to be just around the corner. In the sunnier portions of our yard, the daffodil shoots are popping up through the soil, and I am sure the hellebore will soon start blooming.

Optional Watercolor Day
March 25, 2015
Over the years, I have conducted a number of design seminars. They have been some of my favorite seminars to teach. Anyone who has taken a design seminar previously can tell you that the flow of creativity during a design class is amazing. The students have always far surpassed what they thought they could do. The design seminars are planned so that each student is able to start where they are comfortable and progress from that point.

White Satin Porcelain
You may have noticed the disappearance of the White Satin Porcelain page from our web site. Many of you know that we have been slowly phasing out these beautiful surfaces. A couple of years ago the main factory that produced this product closed and most of our items became unavailable. We tried some product from other factories, but were very dissatisfied with both the quality and the reliability. I made the decision to quit fighting the porcelain battle and concentrate on designing for other surfaces. I am quite excited about spending more time designing signature wood pieces and working on some new surfaces, such as the Ampersand Aquabord. Meanwhile, we sold down our porcelain inventory and the last pieces left our shelves this fall. All paintings that were originally done on the porcelain may be painted on wood or other surfaces. . . plates, trays, boxes, etc. Alternative surface only need to be prepared with a white or off white acrylic basecoat.
