Tinker Around

Welcome to my blog. It is full of basic projects and tutorials for things that I have done and feel like others out there would benefit from learning too. Be sure to take time to leave me a comment. Thanx, Pam

Painting Seminar and Craft Show

Well, I don't think that I have caught up on my sleep yet.  What a blast I had painting with Ros Stallcup last week.  I learned a LOT and had a BLAST!!!  What a great lady!!  IF you have NO idea who I am talking about, you can find her at  http://www.gransgarden.com/   Ros is such a spectacular woman and so down to earth!

Ok, here are some pictures of the paintings we did and of the group.  Each morning we started around 9am and we took two breaks and a lunch...finishing up around 4:30pm each evening.  On to the pictures...
Learning the basic rose.

Ros in action, what a great teacher!

Ros and Me!

Our Snowscape.  We didn't use any white in this painting.  There were some light blues and a fleshy color that were combined for the snow.  Amazing.

I was really surprised at how easy Ros made it.  We all followed along at a rather quick pace. There is stucco under the painting, and that really was great for dry brushing techniques.  

Some of the ladies during one of our breaks.

The finished Roses.  There is stucco underneath and some stenciling on the corners.  Really is much more dramatic in person.

Now, on to the craft show at the 18th Annual Kosher Chili Cook-Off.  I don't think that I have ever seen or felt so much wind in one day, and was quickly reminded why I really don't care for outdoor shows.  The shoppers were really kind and I met some interesting folks.  I took pictures of some of my favorite vendors and under each picture I will put their contact information.  So, let's take a look at who my picks were for best of vendors...
