"Little Fireman"

11 x 14 in. Watercolor
Instructional Lesson  Packet Available for this project on my website.

We are on count down for the HOOT Convention.  I'm working hard on the newsletter and new web site...of course I have these little glitches (*&%$!!) but I'm being NICE.  I'm so looking forwarding to seeing old friends and making new ones.  Hoot is such a great convention, lots of burning the midnight oil with all that painting going on.  I'm going to show everyone my last year's Christmas Present from Santa (new ditigal projecter, don't tell my students).  As you all know watercolors are painted almost laying flat, so when you have 35 students in one class it's kinda hard to see, but with  my new present, everyone will get a big view!

I'm really excited about the new look. The blog is taking on a new look and content also. I decided to make it more about sharing information. I will be doing a monthly newsletter. If you sign up to received it via email, you will automatically be registered for a instructional packet, my last book or a print, your choice! So please sign up! On a special occassion I may just throw in an original painting!  I love painting, but I also love teaching!  I've been spending time with my mother and mother in law, both are very ill, so I've had time to think what I want for the next 20 years.......I'm supposed to be semi retired!
