This is an old post from Jan.2.  The date for the workshop is June 22nd, 23rd in Plains, TX. If you didn't get an email from me and are interested, please let me know, and I will send you the details.


Well 2012 is here. Seems like it got here really fast! I feel like it will be a busy year. I signed a contract during the Christmas Holidays, with a licensing company, Not having a clue what will come of that, but will think positive thoughts!

I have collage workshop scheduled January 20-21 in Tyler, TX.
One in Midland TX March 7-9, and one in Big Spring TX April 27-28th. I am available for others if the opportunity comes up.

I have been thinking about offering another type of workshop. For those who don't paint, or don't paint a lot, who would like to. It is using your own photos, and putting them on watercolor paper, watercolor sketch book, etc. and then you add to the photo with drawing or painting. Or if you prefer, just learning about sketch booking. They make such great pieces of art, plus is a lot of fun and very creative. The photos I added here, are from two of mine that I have done. I love sketch books! There is a freshness about them, that I can't explain. So if you love to draw, doodle, journal or want to learn more about it this would be a fun time and a time to learn. Plus if you have a lot of vacation photos, that you would like to enhance, this would be the way to do it.
I am planning on doing this sometime this summer, so if you are interested email me and let me know.

If you look at the photos I have posted, you can tell where I cut the photo out, carefully glued it down, then using watercolor painted around it~continuing the view.
