I am offering all 4 of my Primitive Portraits classes at 40% off. This series of classes have been my most popular to date! We let loose and get back to the basics of painting faces. They are simplified, raw, sweet, vulnerable, and have your name written on their faces. This coupon is good through October 15th. Use code: PRIM40 or you can click on the pictures and it will take you to each class with the 40% already in. happy creating!
The other morning, I woke up early and couldn't go back to sleep. I kept thinking about my watercolors and decided to get up and begin painting immediately. I normally get up, make coffee, and watch the news. But making painting a priority has really made my start to the day so powerful. The first photo is the finished piece but I loved her at the more undone stage as well.
I only used the Prima Decadent pies watercolor palette in Miss Acorn Princess.
I closed the shop last week (something which I rarely do!) . I wanted to focus on my family for a few days as we visited my Granny's hometown. I loved listening to the stories of Daddy getting lost up river, granny not being able to go to school when the water was over the road, and how my aunt Joan remembers taking lots of photos by the "big tree" at my great-grandfather's house. I have tons of pictures. I'll try to remember to post a few pics in the coming days. here is one selfie we took. My granny is 90 on October 3rd!
Frolic, Neat Stuff, and Paint Your Story are retiring at the end of the year (2017). Once you register for the class, you will receive lifetime access (with downloadable videos). So the content won't be going away. They just won't be offered for sale after the end of the year. I have deeply discounted these 3 classes. These were my first 3 classes that I created back in 2012, so they have had a good run...with Paint Your Story hosting over 1300 students....!!

Sunday, I saw the most amazing caterpillar with antlers....on my front porch. I've never seen anything like him! So I did some research and found out that he will transform to a Yellow-based Tussock moth. And it looks like the "antlers" become the feelers and the antlers on the back become the legs. Nature is really amazing, isn't it....?!?
I have som new watercolors up in ready to go in the shop.
