Christmas Rose Candlesticks
Just in time for the Holidays!!! But we decided these candlesticks can be used all year 'round! (Late 2002)

Snow Bunting Oil Class
Feb 2003 - Beginner oil class: These gals painted more like intermediate students! Everyone had a charming little Snow Bunting to take home.

Hearts in Style
Feb 2003 - What fun it was getting back together to paint! Our projects were a matching tray and lampshade with springtime colors - although the howling winter wind outside told us another tale. We had two new gals, Sue and Dalene, join us ... Welcome!

Charming Chickadee
Feb 2003 - What a great class!! I'm just so darn proud of how talented this group of oil painters is!! This was Kathy's first oil painting, but you'd never know it!!... Thanks to all for making this class so much fun!

Folk Art Flowers
March 2003 - Pretty folk art carnations and tulips painted on round wall plaques. It was great fun playing with this style of strokework flowers / foliage; not to mention playing with different colors!! Now that they've learned this "quick" art style, these gals will be able to quickly paint pretty gifts.

Stoned Birdhouse
March 2003 - What a merry band of painters I have!! At the last minute I decided to "stone" this little birdhouse; everyone agreed and everyone finished their project! The crackling technique on the roof was enjoyed by all.

Art Class Photo - Beneath Monet's Pond Art Class Photo - Gingerbread Welcome Art Class Photo - Violets Three

Beneath Monet's Pond
This advanced/intermediate class was a learning experience for everyone, including myself! Did you know that koi have tiny whiskers? And the three acrylic painters tried their hand at oils on the water lily. Such good troopers!

Gingerbread Welcome
There were Gingerbread Cookies everywhere!!! This class learned some important techniques for creating a realistic painting with a lot of attention paid to detail. They'll be able to apply what they learned here to their own projects.

Violets Three
This oil painting of a Wild Violet was a testament to skill; and everyone went home with lovely wild Purple Violets. Our White Violets and Freckles Violets will soon be done as well. We were fortunate to have real violets to study.

So ! Just how many Chickadees can fit in Winfield Hall? Quite a few from the looks of this class photo!! This was a beginner oil session and everyone completed a beautiful painting. So sorry to the gal who had to leave early and was not included in this picture!...

Froggie's Stoned Birdbath
What a pleasure it is for me to paint with such talented painters. This acrylic piece had lots of detail, but the end result was worth it. Everyone finished their birdbath and will be able to add it to their garden.
THANKS for such a fun class, ladies
AND for meandering through my gardens.

Tricks or Treats
We all had a good time painting Candy Corn and Mr. Ghost and conversing about the full moon. It was a pleasure meeting with two new painterly friends !!! Our first timer in this fun class sure didn't paint like a first timer!!!

This was one of the most fun classes yet!! And these gals should be proud as they painted the most lovely jingle bells. PS...Don't I have a good-looking group of gals here???

Merry Christmas Banner
Sharon Holt was our instructor for this lovely Christmas banner. And the studio had it's youngest (14yrs old) and newest member- Kiley. Everyone now has a most wonderful wallhanging.

TeaTime Teddy Class
This fun class was a real workout for us, but well worth the journey. One of the trays was going to be used as a baby gift and the other to decorate a kitchen and one of mine will be used in a guest room.
