Christmas Sale at Pine Ridge Studio! Dec. 12 & 13th. 10 am.- 4pm.
A little different this year, but still your favorite Christmas Sale! I will be there with my paintings, notecards, Christmas cards and decorations. All Pine Ridge pottery will be 50% Off, free Christmas greenery (alright, some Christmas ‘brownery’ as pine cones and grapevine wreaths are, after all, brown). Janice Johnston will be here with her fabulous dill pickles and preserves as well as original art work. All local, we will have just the things you need to complete your Christmas gift-giving! We will, of course, be following all Covid-19 precautions, including only allowing a limited number of shoppers inside at any time. And it might be cold (it will be cold) and you may have to wait in line to get in, so please dress warmly! Hmmm, maybe a self-serve hot chocolate station is called for…
Hope to see you!
Well we are not yet out of the woods with Covid19 so I can't start any group classes so I've decided to offer private lessons in my studio. Painting is a wonderful therapeutic method of relaxing and calming the mind. When you really get into a painting and get in the "zone" you have no idea of time or the world around you.
You can now enter my home wearing a mask, I will be wearing one too. Then I will lead you upstairs to my studio where you and I will sit facing each other but each at a separate table. We will then be able to remove our masks as we paint together. Anytime we are closer than 6 feet we will put our masks on again. I wish we could have more students at a time but there really isn't enough room for more with social distancing. I am charging $25 an hour for one lesson or $120 for 6 one hour lessons. If you would rather learn at home check out some of my lessons on YouTube. You can see them here;
and I have also started an on line schooldYou may have noticed that my website has changed. I changed website hosting companies so have had to rebuild it. It at least has given me a chance for a fresh look. Let me know in the comments how you like it and be sure to let me know if you see errors!
I have been making YouTube videos, in case you are not aware.
You can find them here ; www.youtube.com/channel/UCWyIbmOLNGSnmwVDwbg8sYQ
I have also started an on-line school. In the beginning I will have acrylic classes and later watercolour classes.
I have one free class and so far only one other class that you need to pay for. But don't worry there's more in the works!

Some of my work is available at the Herb Garden. Because of Covid19, the gallery is not open to the public right now, but you can see it, as well as work by other artists here but you have to scroll way... down:
My work is also at the Carp West Carleton Family Health Team Building but it is currently not open. Hopefully it will open soon.
Wow I hope soon things will get back to normal. In the meantime , painting and drawing can be very therapeutic and what better time for creativity! Be well everyone!
