New Classes listed

August 12, 2014

So, I’ve actually had people interested and asking for me to teach painting using the “Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet Technique®” style.  My first one is scheduled for August 23rd 10am-1 pm.   You can find more details my clicking on the tab above for my “Joy of Painting®” classes.


My first class is going to be this easy to start with seascape painting I’ve titled Secluded Dune.  Class sizes will be limited so that each student will get the one-on-one training.  I will also be adding another date soon.

My question to you all is:

#1.  For my local peeps, would you like to see a daytime or evening class in addition to weekend classes.

#2.  For my country-wide friends/students, is this a type of class you would like to see coming to your LSS?

Working…Not Blogging

May 25, 2014

I give up.  I want to blog more, but I know until I MAKE that a priority in my work and make the effort to schedule time to actually upload photos and try to use some of my creativity in the actual writing of a blog post, it is not going to magically happen.  I […]

Update on Workshops

March 27, 2014

Unfortunately, I won’t be taking my Spring Teaching Tour this year.   Life sometimes wants to take over our plans, which can be good and bad at times.   Being sick for so many months with vertigo (and still having a few issues) and the opportunity to move into a downtown studio, put a kink in my […]
