First Jingle Stop Holiday Show at the Stutz!

Friends I hope to see you tonight for the chance to have a fun night of art, food and entertainment.  The will offer photos with Santa (get your wish list in early!) Sun King Beer, and special offerings at the Car Room Bar/Bearcats.  I will have lots of pieces at discounted prices so you can stay within your shopping budget.  If you want to create your own masterpiece to give this holiday email me for class times and dates.

As in years past I will also be giving a portion of my proceeds to charity.  This year I will be donating to F.I.D.O (Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside) You can read about there tireless work here:  This organization helps to educate owners of outside dogs in the best way to treat and care for their pet as well as offer assistance in giving their pets the best quality of life.  Right now they are gearing up for what may be another nasty winter.  They are in need of Dog Houses (new or gently used), straw and other items listed on their site.  Let's all give back to those fur buddies who love us unconditionally. 

Hope to see you tonight!  Merry Christmas!

Wawasse ! AND An Open House!

What a fabulous weekend for a plein air paint out!  While it did rain on Saturday it did not stop me from painting! Thanks to my lovely hosts Dave, Julie, Drew, Eve, John, Nick and Noelle.  I have some new collectors too!  Thanks Kim, Jennifer, Trina and Barb for your purchases.  I can't wait to see pics of the paintings in your home.  Looking forward to the next one in 2015.

Now for the Open House Aug 1st.  Back in 2007 I was struggling with my art. I had just returned from Italy and struggling to paint.  I had forgotten about my inquiries at the Stutz for a studio when Anne called.  "I have a couple of studios available if you are still interested" WOW! SO I checked them out and chose D285 (yes I know I could have picked the one on the third floor).  My move in date was Aug 1st 2007.  This was also the same time I discovered finger painting.  BIG changes in my life, career and painting.  I looked around and thought how will I ever fill these walls?  Will people find me?  IS this the right move?  Well, God and all of you helped to answer that question! YES! 
So as I begin another year at the Stutz in D285 my walls and hall are FULL of work ready for your home or office.  Come join me First Friday Aug 1st 12pm-8pm for a celebration of success you have provided. THANKS and See you there!

Finally I cannot thank my friends for giving up their Friday night and Saturday afternoon to help me help you! I am so blessed to have friends like Angel, Kim, Kevin, Tracy and Tom.

Happy New Year! Are you ready to Paint???

I am taking a survey to see how much interest there is in painting classes.  As many of you know I have been teaching the finger painting technique for over 7 years now.  Let's say I was "Wine n Canvas" before it was a popular business.  My classes are more intimate. (max 10ppl)  I supply everything for you to paint a 11x14 canvas board for $40.  You supply the wine and friends.  I know there is some interest for individuals who like to paint but cannot get a group together.  So what I am looking to find out is A) how many are interested in doing a group or individual class.  B) weeknights or Saturday mornings/afternoon which is better?  C) types of images you would like to paint? landscapes, abstract, contemporary? Any other side tips you are willing to offer.  I would like to begin by opening my studio on Thursday evenings 4-8pm for those who want to paint without getting a group together. $40 two hour session. I will post a calendar with images being taught each night. You will need to confirm space and give cc# for confirmation.  I would like to start the classes beginning Jan. 9th painting the Blue Hydrangeas or Last Glass.  Any feedback is appreciated!
