Snowman In The Moonlight at Eagle Creek Winery

 Who Knew Painting A Moon Could Be So Fun!!!

I've painted a moon many time and I sure didn't know.

You guys crushed that snowman painting.

Hope you had as much fun as I did.  

Just a bunch of painter bee's here.

Beth must have something really fun going on back there. 

Due to technical difficulties, 

(my husbands thumb in front of the camera lens),

I don't have a pic of you all without your masks.  

I guess that's not a bad thing,

but I would love to see your smiling faces.

Anyway, you all did a great job and I hope to see you again next month.

This is what we'll be painting in January.

I don't know about you but I will be ready for 

some spring right about then.

We've painted a wine bottle, so this will be very similar to that process if you were with us then.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

Praying that the virus passes you all by.

I have a free Facebook group for people who have always wanted to learn to paint, but life got in the way.  It's called Bucket List Artists.
You can follow the link, ask to join and then answer the 3 questions that pop up.  Then you'll have access to over 1 1/2 years worth of weekly live videos, hints, tips and tricks about painting and drawing.  
Click HERE to go to Bucket List Artists. 

If you would like to see my available art, click HERE.

I also have online classes and you can click HERE to go to that website.  

I thank you so much for coming to our classes and helping everyone have a wonderful evening.  
We thank Beth and David Lynn for allowing us to paint there.

Every small business depends on word of mouth and I'm no different.  If you happen to see any of my posts on Facebook, I sure would appreciate a like, a comment or a share.  
I'm sure Eagle Creek Winery feels the same.  

Thanks again and,

let's paint together real soon.

Painting A Christmas Barn With The Eagle Creek Fun Bunch

 Even In Masks All Nite

We Still Had A Great Time

Teaching and painting all while wearing a mask is not an easy task and I won't hide that I don't like doing it,

but we all did and not only did we survive,

but we did excellent.

Gosh you guys were great!

Here's your video.  

You're gonna be famous!

Here is your finished work.

And Here are the Unmasked Painters.

The jury is out on the December painting, BUT

put December 15 on your calendar and we'll see what the world is like as we get closer.  

We'll be painting the Snowman in the Moonlight.

I told you about a package I've put together of

4, 1-hour private painting classes in my home in January 2021.

Beginning Artist Class Package

 Calling All Beginning Artists!
I've put together what I think is a super package
of 4, 1 - hour private lessons to be taught in my home studio in Pewee Valley, KY.

The goal in the lessons is to help you shorten your learning curve with 2 classes on art concepts,
including: color theory, values, form and perspective.
Then you'll take all that knowledge and put it to use as you complete 2 small simple paintings in the last 2 weeks.  
It's one thing to learn art concepts, but until you use them in actual work, you haven't really learned them yet.

Click HERE to learn all about this private lesson course.

The lessons begin in January and you'll pick the date and the time for the first lesson.  Then every lesson will be on that same day of the week and time for the rest of the month.
Example: If you select Monday, January 4, at 1 p.m., you will have classes at 1 p.m. on January 4, 11, 18, & 25. 

I provide everything you will need for your first 2 classes and I will also provide a supply list of what you will need for the last 2 classes.

I'm only offering 20 slots 
and this opportunity will never come around again
at this price.
I'm offering the whole shootin match for
the insanely low price 
of $99.00
I know I'm crazy, but I received inspiration about this class and that's what I was told to do,
so I'm doing it.
$99 and you're in.

This class is great for adults who've always wanted to learn to paint, but it will also be great for the kiddos, older than 10, who have that artistic interest.

Click HERE to go to the page where you can read more and book your time slot.

I can't say it enough.
I'm positive these are going to sell out, so get a move on
and start clickin and get your spot reserved.

Have a great day and
Let's paint together real soon.

Fall Vintage Trucks All Around

 Vintage Trucks Full of Pumpkins

What a great Saturday we had at

 General Butler State Park in Carrollton, KY 

recently painting these fun vintage trucks.  

This small group really got into making

 this painting their own.

She really had the color going on.

Check out that palette.  

Janice's husband restored a similar vintage truck in a green shade.  She painted hers to correspond

 with his truck.  (AWE!  Sweet!)

That's one of the things about this type of class, you can and should add your own personality in your painting, making it any color you choose.

I teach a method and you use that method 

to make it your own.

Deep in concentration. 

Lots of safe space.

Making that truck her own.

It's easy to see how these artists really turned this step by step instruction into their own masterpieces.

I usually do a video of every class I teach, but for whatever reason, the video of this class did not turn out.  Not sure what happened there. 

 This was a fun group and I would loved to have had them on video.

Thanks so much to all who came.

I had a wonderful time and I hope you did as well.  

I have a YouTube channel and on there I have a video of how to frame your painting.  Click HERE to go to that video. 

I have a boatload of videos on there for beginning painters, so why not give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel while you're there.  All the videos are specifically for beginning painters in an effort to help you shorten your learning curve.

that has also been created for the beginning artist and is free. I go live in there on Thursday at 1 p.m. EST and I've been at it for over a year so there are tons of videos on painting and drawing along with hints, tips and tricks.

Sorry If You Missed This Party

 This Bunch Knew How To Party

You guys about wore me out.

Eagle Creek Winery sells out quickly 

and they come ready to create, laugh 

and have fun.

Eagle Creek graciously offers tasting of their wines and each painter gets one glass of wine to go with their class.  You can purchase more after that.  

We came to paint a wine bottle,

 wine glass and some grapes.

This was a giggly group and we had a boatload of fun.

Here's a little video of those giggly painters.

Here they are with their finished masterpieces.  

These ladies were wonderful and

 I hope they had as much fun as I did. 

I give away something each class and today Leslee won a slate shingle and a towel from Eagle Creek Winery.  

The next class at Eagle Creek Winery will be 

Tuesday, November 17, 6-8 p.m.

We'll be painting a barn with a wreath on it.

Painting on Both Sides of The River

 What Fun Ladies To Paint With

I recently painted with 2 ladies that were so much fun and I enjoyed their company so much. 

I hope we paint together again soon.

On the Indiana side I painted with Marie.

We had a great class, talk, visit,

whatever you'd like to call it.

We had a great time painting these

 2 cats sitting in the moonlight.

Then I headed to the Kentucky side of the river

 to paint with Georgia.

She also painted the cats in the moonlight.

Georgia and I found we had very many things in common

and she also did a super job on her cats.

Private Party - Boy That Was Fun!!!

 I Do Private Parties

Recently I was asked to teach a painting class at an invitation only event at Eagle Creek Winery Tasting Room 

in Warsaw, KY.

This group of women came ready to paint and have FUN!

We painted lighthouses.

Everyone made their lighthouse their own. 

There was lots of giggling going on

as the lighthouses began to take shape.  

This was one really fun bunch of painters.

I'm still laughing.

The winner of a painted slate shingle and an Eagle Creek towel with her loot.  

This party was a blast.

If you would like to host your own painting party,

please email me at

And I can give you the lowdown on how it works.  

I have a minimum of 5 participants if within 20 miles.

It goes up the further I have to travel.

You will need a venue that has enough room for your guests to be safely distanced and you will need to supply tables and chairs and

 if you want refreshments for your guests.

I supply everything else. 

Let's have a party!  

If you're interested in online classes,

I've got you covered there also.

 being able to go to a painting class,

but I sure did.

The really good news for this class was 

I just got new brushes and they are the first to use them.

This is our subject.

And here is our class.

We had 10 super women in this class.

We had 3 mother-daughter combo's,

we had grandmas and nieces and friends.

Here's several short videos showing our process.

I thought I'd try something a little different

 to get a photo of the group and 

stay sort of socially distanced, so I made a video.

And then I took a quick photo.
