Decorative painting books, Packets, brushes,
Surfaces and more!
Hello everyone and Happy Fall to ya All!!
A bit southern, but after all that is where I reside now. It's hard to believe that the summer is gone and fall is here already. Where does the time go? I do enjoy fall, but I'm a warm weather person, and I don't enjoy what comes "after" fall. But, if I wanted warm weather all year around, we should have moved farther south. My fault!!!
Wanted to let everyone know how the year has gone, with all the shows and seminars winding down. Starting with Creative Painting, almost always a good show, and this year was no exception. ALOT of walk in traffic and speaking as an exhibitor, that's always good news. My two classes were fantastic and am looking forward to 2016. I did not attend SDP in Chicagoland in May. Had other obligations, but was told it was a good show as well. The registration and walk in traffic was a little less than expected - but, those that did attend, said they had a GREAT time and spent at the trade show. Next year SDP will be back in San Diego, CA. HOOT, also had a little smaller registration and the trade show was a little smaller as well. In order to keep the shows alive and keep exhibitors, attendees and teachers coming back - we have to have more participation from decorative artists. I know that with our demographics we are all getting older. However, decorative paintings survival depends on more excitement and participation. NET is coming up in a week or so, and do not know what the registration or exhibitor count is there. Will find out shortly though. :) I hope to see you at one of the shows soon!
An announcement of a NEW show in town though. Painting Palooza, to be held in Midwest City, OK (a suburb of Oklahoma City) sounds very exciting. To be held from September 26th - October 1, 2016. A lot of fun is being planned to enhance the wonderful painting opportunities that will be available. Looking forward to this new painting adventure being organized by Bob & Katie Van Horn -- Larry & Cheri Rol and Darla Foreman and Janette Ward. So mark your calendar and be sure to be there.
As for me, I am being dragged into the 21st century and have joined an online e-course group called PURELY ACRYLICS. I have two class projects being offered and hope to hear from a lot of my friends and students. Sign-ups start October 1st and there will be many, many artists that the decorative painting community is familiar with. Not only myself, but Kim Christmas, Lynne Deptula, Judy Diephouse, Linda Sharp, Lydia Steeves, Cindy Harrison and Kathy Swigon -- just to name a few. So check the projects at http://purelyacrylics.com on October 1st. I'm sure that you'll not be disappointed.
I will be adding new packets and e-packets to my website, so please come back often, to see what's new.
