Woven Watercolor Barn Kit

I was asked before I left for Wyoming if I had any woven barn watercolor kits, so I thought about it, and put some together.  The kit includes the watercolor paper, drawing, examples, note card of the painting, and directions. It does not include scissors or rotary cutter, masking tape, or watercolor brush. They are $35.00 plus 8.00 shipping. All you need is a mat and frame when finished.
. There are 3 other designs as well. All you have to do is paint 2 paintings, cut them up, and weave back together. The barn will frame out to 12x16 or 14x18, or 16x20,(the mat size) depending on how large you want it. A lot of fun! It might be a fun Christmas Gift for the creative people on your list!

Update on Wyoming Trip

I am so far behind on posting. I had planned on posting each night while gone but was too exhausted at night.
I took lots of photos and will post a few. I had such fun meeting the art colony artist, Jane Freeman,Janet Belich,  Helen Shideler, Ellie Sethman and Marilyn Wear.  We were so excited, Helen got 2 nd place in the watercolor show and Marilyn won the overall big prize which is she gets to go free next year! When the workshop was over 4 of us stayed over 3 days and went to Yellowstone and the Tetons. We saw so many animals and beautiful streams of water.  Birds etc. it was such an awesome trip. We had great instructors. Lots of decisions and choices on what to do.  
Too many really. Robert Bateman world famous wildlife artist was there painting and lecturing. It was an honor to meet him. Along with other artist...John and Suzie Seery Lester, Carl Purcell, Lee cable, John Phelps, Wanda Mum, David Rankin along with others. There was 176 artists there to paint.  I hope to go back! 

After the rain.  A couple seconds of sun!
