Before and After pictures are here!

I just finished two paintings today.  I started out with two of my paint like a pro: Pre-printed canvases.    Today I chose the NEW YORK canvas and the THREE CITIES canvas.  I had a lot of fun transforming them into colorful creations!

I am teaching a class this coming Saturday at Donna Downey Studios in Huntersville, NC.  From 10am - 1pm.  The cost for the class is $40.00 and all supplies are included!  You leave with a painting of your very own.  The class is geared for beginner to intermediate level painters.  Someone who wants to learn to use color in an effective and thoughtful way, but enjoys the idea of having pre-printed imagery which takes out the guesswork of getting started.  Having fun and leaving with a beautiful painting is the goal.  When you sign up for the class you get to look over the pre-printed canvases to determine which one you want to paint on.  You then have the option of buying additional canvases afterward for the price of $15.00 each.

So, without any further a-du, here are my before and after images!

Memories of Paris

     I have another image for my upcoming class at Donna Downey studios!

     This image entitled Memories of Paris is available for purchase or as a class.  The date for the class is Nov. 17th from 10am - 1pm.  Cost is $40.00 for the class, all supplies included.  This is one of many images you can choose from and paint to perfection as a stand alone piece or as one of many works that can hang on the wall like a collage of paintings.  The point is that you can have paintings on your wall that were painted by YOU!

     So without any further a-du, here is memories of Paris.  My before and after picture is coming soon!

London, New York, Paris

Brand New online video workshop!

Below is the old version of mine that inspired the new version and video workshop. 


"London Memories"

"London Memories" is the name of a couple start up canvases I created for my Paint like a Pro canvas line.  The purpose is to give you a start, taking the hard part out of the painting, so that you can have fun with the color on top.  Use your creativity to make your own unique finished painting!

Now that I have these images, I can make my own examples of an end painting! I'm excited to show you very soon what I end up with. If you are interested in your very own canvases, please let me know or sign up for my class on Saturday November 17th from 10am - 1pm.
