Hello friends! I’m back from my California adventure…I have over 100 new friends there now, we had such fun at the retreat at The Cats Meow! It was a long drive home but I’m back and in the claws of my kitties again…funny how they suddenly appreciate us after we’ve been gone, eh? (To my students: I sent the promised email with links last night but had trouble reading some of the handwriting….let me know if you didn’t get my note.)


On Sunday I had a little bloggy oops—the bad wifi on the trip prevented me from fixing it and also sharing the latest watercolor tip. Which happens to be here.

Classes in Buffalo

This week I’ll be packing up to ship things to Buffalo – there’s a few spots left in classes, better hurry if you want to come! We’ll be putting as many people and tables in as we can, so be sure to *only* bring a small bag with your specific supplies so we can fit without tripping over roller bags….maybe leave things in the car if you’re worried you’ll need something extra?
