New Painting Class

I will be teaching painting workshops during the week of July 12-16th.   We will be completing three paintings: a simple landscape with poppies (similar to above), a still life and a modern abstract. 

The adult class will be held from 7:30 - 9 pm, Monday - Friday, at Fellowship of Christians, Russellville, AR.

The kids class (for grades 3 and up) will be held from 1:00 - 2:30 pm Monday - Friday at Hobby Lobby in Russellville, AR.

Please contact me here or on my facebook page to reserve a spot.  I will take up to 10 students in each class.

Cost for the series is $50 plus supplies (approx. $50).

Bonneville House Show

Had a great evening at the Bonneville House "Jazz in June" event. Here is a link to their website that tells the Bonneville House History

I sold all 4 of my newest small butterfly paintings, another small butterfly painting "Clipper", and a pear and apple set of paintings, plus several prints and cards.  The band was amazing and the food too.  The dark chocolate covered strawberries alone made the trip worthwhile!

Iris Paintings Changed

I just couldn't leave the irises alone.  I had them sitting in my living room for the last few weeks and the background colors were still bugging me.  They seemed to distract from the flowers not compliment them.  So I painted them all black.  I don't usually change the background after the painting is done because it usually doesn't look quite right.  I think this worked though.  I like them MUCH better.  They look like a set now and the colors really pop.
