Wild Cottage Garden

Week Three

Get lost in an ancient garden this week. Kiss muddy color goodbye and use violets and blues for shadows! Why? Because we can! We’re going to get a little romantic and find out why kissing is an important part of composition, and learn how to loosen up our paintings with confident brushstrokes. What are we painting this week? Here’s a hint: You can’t have a proper cottage garden without one of these!

Queen for a Day Retreat

Week Five

Imagine a place where time stood still and held a space ~ for you. In our fifth week together, I’ve saved the best for last. Two full length painting videos and a movie getaway featuring the quiet charm of Italy and my journey workshop retreat. Take a moment to smell the sunflowers with me in Week 5 and warm up your brushes, while you're at it!

It's a wrap!

Ever wonder what really goes on behind the scenes of months of taping and painting, and flower arranging and brush cleaning? Do you really think I never once dropped a brush or hiccuped during a painting session in front of the video camera? In our final video, my talented videographer Michelle picked her favorite off-camera moments and made a memorable movie of artist bloopers especially for you!

Prepare for giggles and grins!
