" Painting classes wth Linda Blevins......"

OK Girls , I've been spreading my wings a bit, and taking some wonderful painting classes from Linda Blevins.  You can email her for more info about up coming classes at: linda@lindablevins.com......I just love how she does it over a 4 week period of time and you start out with basic drawing and color mixing and work your way by week 3 and 4 to really applying what you have learned. her classes are in her home in Nipomo, and on nice days we paint out side.. This has been so wonderful for my soul... So if you are looking for something fun and different . Think about your inner artist and give it a try..........
smaller paintings I did, I love they have a nautical theme and I can hang them up in my house ...
This is my latest painting. I found the frame at Goodwill for $ 4.99, and replaced picture it came with  , with my artwork.....No that isn't my house. That is Lindas beautiful peacock themed tree she did for Christmas this year. She is really early because she does a Christmas party and ornament exchange. I went with my Daughter-in-law last year and it is a blast.....New shipment of Hats and Ponchos are going in the shop today.... So hope to see you soon  .....Hugs Chrisy
