It's over!!

The great job crisis of 2012, '13, and '14 is over. My husband has received an official offer of employment from a great company. Now that the breakthrough flood gates are open, he is receiving calls for jobs like mad! lol  I'm just glad it's over! Thank you to everyone who prayed for us. God bless you.

Plugging right along

I finished the big rose in the middle, and two buds last night while watching t.v.. The roses against a black background look amazing. The black really makes them pop.

The beginning of something beautiful

Seven years ago when I started teaching myself how to paint, it was because I wanted to paint beautiful roses. I bought dvd's, I attended classes, I bought more dvd's and watched videos on Youtube. All in pursuit of the elusive rose. The above is a photo of a rose I am presently working as part of a 9x12 painting of a small bouquet of roses on a black background. I know I am not the only person out there who wishes to paint beautiful roses. The desire to paint roses has existed probably before people knew what paint was. When I am done with this painting, I of course will post photos of it for you to enjoy but better yet, I want to teach you how to paint your own roses. I have experienced so much satisfaction and joy over the years through painting and watching my skills improve. Painting helps to relax me. It gives me a sense of accomplishment when I hold a finished painting in my hands and it helps me to forget my problems when I sit with brush in hand. Winston Churchill painted, Jackie Kennedy painted, Grandma Moses painted at the age of 78, and you, yes you, can learn how to paint as well.  If learning how to paint is something you have always wanted to do but didn't have the time, now is your time.
I am offering rose painting classes in oil paint. You may contact me through this website for more information. I hope you will join me for a rose painting class some day.
