Frozen Solitude paintings Dec. 4th 2010 in Arborg

Frozen Solitude another painting from the Bob Ross book 13 and these 3 students did a FANTASTIC JOB.
One of my students was a little shy and didn't want to be on camera, so I only took a picture of her painting.
ladies you all did an awesome job, you all should be very proud of what you mastered.
Thank you for sharing your painting spirit with me.
My little saying is "Release The Artist In You"
and these ladies did just that, Thank you again.

2 days of Floral

My First Floral Class as an Instructor.

Here are my First Floral students I think they all did an ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL JOB.
I did warn them all that this was my first floral class that I was about to teach, they still stayed to take it ( brave people ) none of them left even after I told them that I too was a little nervous.

We laughed and joked and had a good time which made it a nice relaxing atmosphere.

Some were shy and didn't want to be on my blog so I only have pictues of their paintings. oh by the way yes that is me in that picture at the top of the page, one of my students thought it would be neat to have me on my blog as well.

This was my Sunday class

it's really hard to believe that this was their first floral class. they all did a FANTASTIC JOB.

This group was also allot of fun and with the smiles on their faces it looks like they enjoyed it. Oh I forgot I forced them to smile....

Today October 30th, 2010 we painted Mountain Summit, although there were only 3 students taking this class we had a blast.
They were such a fun group to work with, I almost hated when the class was over. Hopefully they will return for other classes.
They painted such beautiful paintings ... take a look at what they did...
oh one of the ladies was shy and didn't want her picture taken, so I respected her wishes and only took a picture of her painting.
Here are their paintings.....

Mountain Summit
This was a Fun, Fantastic, Wonderful, Great Group of students,
this is going to be hard to believe ....BUT ....
They tried to tell me that they never painted before... yeah right....
I personally don't believe them... Because
Look at what they did.
It really is hard to Believe that they never painted before. but it is true
