Art Class!

I realize there hasn't been much 'art' lately @ Roxanne The Artist! I've just been, shall we say, in a holding pattern. However, my precious Father in heaven, who knows the 'desires of my heart', has answered my prayers.



Over the past year, some sweet friends have been encouraging me to teach them to paint. So 4 weeks ago today I began teaching. It went well and I had so much fun! Then 10 days ago, in response to a conversation about 'having a real studio someday', friend Terrie arranged for me to see a loft space downtown. I instantly loved it! So now I have a studio! . . .the kind I've dreamed of! I can hardly contain my excitement. It is amazing! I promise to take more pictures, but for the time being here are the ones I took on my iphone at the end of class.


Deviled egg plates make the nicest little palette!

The results of a 2 hour class on 'roses'! Jo Carol, who does have some painting experience did a fabulous job on her roses ( bottom center). She was so surprised that we did no drawing...just painting!


This was Boot's 2nd lesson ( her roses are at the top of the photo. The three on the left we did together, the large single on the rt., she did alone). Beautiful!


Today we are painting again from 1-3 and another class tonight, from 6-8! There are a few seats left at the table, won't you join us?

A studio! How fun! So wished I lived about 4 hours west of here...I'd definitely be one of your students! Maybe you need to have a girls weekend painting classes seminar and do several lessons on one day with lunch and shopping! Sign me up...I'll be right over! All your students did so well...the roses are beautiful!
