Welcome to the blog! Where today I’ve got a couple updates I’ve been wanting to get to. Watch the video then read on for more info.

Watch the video below and scroll to the end to leave comments or questions — or click HERE to watch it on YouTube and leave comments over there. I read both dutifully!

Order “Enhanced” Workbook

By the time I’d order, pay shipping, packaging and outbound shipping, I think we’d be better off with you getting it on Amazon for $19.99 if you don’t want a customized book….I’m not sure how long they’ll be available on Amazon, but if you want to get one that way, do it soon!

I’m offering books with some enhancements….first, a personalized note from me, and secondly a watercolored page included! Once I order them in November, I’ll get them painted and mailed out asap after receiving them.

Pet commissions

In November I’ll open up commission applications; that way I don’t commit to you before looking at the photos you provide of your pet and deciding if I can do it justice! I’ll be working on some sample portraits in the rest of October and figuring out pricing by the time applications open up. Stay tuned!

New classes comin’!

I’ve been working for about a month on new classes – four of them! All inspired by the Julie Andrews song “My Favorite Things” — such visual images in the lyrics. We’ll be humming about bright copper kettles, warm woolen mittens, girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, and more! 

The classes will be in alcohol marker, colored pencil, gouache, and watercolor. And all level 2 – no crazy scenes, just great techniques for coloring images for holiday cards. ALL the images are included, as well as a card sketch with fun-fold template to use for each lesson! 

Stay tuned this weekend – watch your email! Or subscribe to this blog, or to the Art-Classes email list, or check in on social. Lots of ways to find out, but given how hard it is to break through on social media, I thought I’d give you a heads up!


Some of the images in the classes will be available for purchase separately. And given that there are lots of my students who work in a bunch of mediums, there’ll be discounts for signing up for more than one class.
