Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes with editor Kristy Conlin
I was in OH at Northlight filming 2 DVD's and we had so much fun it should be illegal. I think the energy will translate for the viewers also. Kristy Conlin, my book editor, became my student for the filming. She is so much fun we had to stop taping a few times for laugh breaks. We did do some outtakes, and I will post those when I have them. The DVD's are on Venetian Plaster painting and Faux Encaustics and will be available this fall from Northlight.

New Work

I Am the Door
This painting combines gels and pastes to create a rich background for my photograph. I took this photo in Braidwood, NSW where my Australian gallery is located.

Thank you Everyone

Thank you to all who made my first BOGOF blog deal a success. I plan to run it again in late November. I am busy creating more paintings as I write my online classes and prepare for my teaching season this year. Please check out my workshop schedule if you are curious. I am teaching all over the country  and in Santa Fe too.

I would like to share with you a success story from one of my students. She and I had been communicating online for some time. She was finally able to come this past year for a workshop in Santa Fe. Judy is a very talented artist and a delight to work with. She also signed up for my online class which began immediately following her Santa Fe workshop. She was on a roll and created many wonderful paintings.

It gets even better. She emailed me today that she sold her first acrylic painting! Now Judy is a successful watercolor artist and she also teaches, so it came as no surprise to me that the painting sold. It is always a wonderful validation when someone loves your work enough to take it home with them. So here is the beautiful piece called Jazz at Sunrise. Thanks Judy for sharing.

Week 8-The Final Week for BOGOF

Well here we are at the end of 2013 and the final week of The Eight Weeks of Giving. You have this final week to make your selections from all of the paintings that have been posted over the eight weeks; that is from the ones that are still available. This has been a very successful experiment and I plan to repeat it next year, but you only have one week left to decide which paintings you are going to get for your Buy One Get One Free Deal. The paintings posted this week are an incredible value compared to what they are normally priced at. The other great deal I talked about last week is that you may select a third painting for half price. So let's say you get two paintings for $400 plus shipping and you like another painting that is also in that price range or lower. You could select the third painting for $200 (or half or what it is priced at) so you get 3 paintings for $600 plus $35 shipping. So without further ado, here are the 9 paintings for this week. Yes, nine paintings.

Circular Time 12x6 on canvas
