By the huge encouragement from my sweet friends, and the need to have fun nights painting on "our side of the mountain" I have started two paint nights. One will be held at Carson's Grille (formerly The Corner) times TBA so watch my blog and for the next 6 weeks in Hampton Cove at the Hampton House starting on September 15. Social time from 5:30-6:00'ish and paint after that. I am so excited to be "teaching" friends and if I can get my husband to come family. It has been sort of a dream of mine to be able to share my creative side with others. NOW the dream has become a reality. I am also looking into another place in Huntsville to have similar classes. If you would like to join us at anytime, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited at both classes so I will have to take the first 16 painters.
The class is very informal. If you have ever said "I cannot paint, I cannot draw stick figures" YOU will be surprised. I will walk you through the painting and everyone will go home with a masterpiece. I supply everything. At Hampton Cove, the class will be held in the old weight room. BYOB light snacks provided (unless you would like to bring an appetizer). At Carson's Grille, you can either eat or come and visit.
September 15th we will paint Abstract Crosses.
The class on September 15th I have 7 who have contacted me. I will keep you posted via this blog.

I wanted to update you on my progress. I went yesterday and had my second visit post surgery and got those nasty stitches out! I now have a highlighter yellow cast. Had to find fun in this miserable venture. I did find out that I have TWO weeks left hauling around fluorescent casts and using my "skinny legs" (the name I have given to my crutches) SO I think my doc was surprised and could not believe I questioned the 2 weeks left in a cast. Last YEAR it was 6. I will have the boot for 10 days-here again-SHOCK to my ears. I pray this will be the end of all this nonsense! I so desire to get outside to paint while things are still pretty. It has just been hard with skinny legs and knock-out casts. I have become a future advocate for the handicapped, may write a book on how to be handicapped in a world that IS handicapped and if anyone wants suggestions how to carry things with skinny legs, deal with daily chores and the best places to visit while handicapped you can call me!! Special thanks to those who have been making encouraging comments on my blog and noticing the paintings or a lack there of. I will revamp my desire and get back on track.

In all my spare time this summer, I have found in my daily routine is to check out many blogsites. This morning I was looking at one of my newer additions Paint Dance blog and saw a new painter mentioned on the site that I thought would be fun to follow. I added the site to my blog for quick reference. It is Don Sahli's paint studio. I think what I like about his work is that he is not intimidated about using lots of color. I absolutely love color-the more color the better. Check out his site- I have no doubt you will love his work.

I was not sure of painting on paper but felt like trying. I found the paper absorbed the paint quickly.
This is a challenge I did from Following the Masters. This challenge was to pick any of Maxfield Parrish's paintings and paint our version. You are given the liberty to paint what you see or change it and paint it your way. I thought the church was really pretty and the simple colors very comforting. Peaceful Night was painted by Parrish in the 1950's.

I wanted to attempt a simple beach scene. I love the beach and watching everyone enjoy its beauty. Children on the beach are amazing to watch. I love their unending curiosity about everything they encounter. I am not sure this is how I wanted this to be so you may see it again touched up.
