Paint Class X2


Paint Class Fun!!

Saturday was one of my scheduled paint classes.

Had planned on doing the beach painting only.

A friend is moving in to a Saltbox house and wanted something primitive.

I did some research on our favorite tool-Pinterest. Came up with a really cute fall painting that she made her own! 

This is my painting.

This is Tammy's!  I love her lighter shading. We worked on the shape of her bird which I like better than mine too!

 I created this beach scene from several pictures on Pinterest. I definitely wanted it to be different. I added the grasses on the side. Loved the chain link on the fence posts.

 These beautiful ladies wanted to do the beach painting I offered. They did a fabulous job!


 I'm so proud to be a Social Art Networking Artist for DecoArt!  They have some fabulous designers.  I try to do 2 classes in month at a local shop Custom Creations.  Try to do the 2nd and 4th Saturday.  I also travel to homes when I have a hostess with friends.  

Painting has become a real favorite past-time for me!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
