Well I have finished off the year teaching about 2 classes a month. I have really come to love pouring what I have learned into the ladies. Some take the first session with all the basic principles and go on their way and others have continued to come back for more. Each person has their own unique expression, which I love seeing come out in each individual painting. Bravo! to all of you :) XO Christie

Magical is the only way to describe the Vignettes holiday open house, we arrived there in the evening and the whole store was sparkling with a warm glow from all the chandeliers hanging and vintage rhinestones reflecting from each display. Lori your store is truly one -of- akind. In side we met quite a few of our friends shopping the fabulous rooms for french antiques and vintage treasures. We had such a great time! If you are ever in Ocean Beach San Diego, make sure to stop by "Vignettes", it's lovely! (thank you Rita for the photos)

Well our December 2011 "Vintage Marketplace" is all said and done. We endured some pretty severe winds that came through our area, but I have to thank all the vendors for their great attitudes and despite the weather conditions they continued to put forth their "best efforts"! Also a huge THANKS to all the shoppers that continued to pour in each day, we appreciate you so much and you contributed to us having another successful show!
I did not get to much time to take photos but here are a few of the things that caught my eye as I briefly walked the show, I hope you enjoy them...XO Christie

Although I love to paint in oil, and it's my favorite of all mediums, I don't seem to get as much time to compose as many as I would like with my busy schedule. Creating a painting to me is like writting a song or a poem, you start out with an inspiration but you never know exactly where it will take you before it's completed. and it usually takes on a life of its own. This year I have painted 7 new oil paintings, and this one is just in time to debut at our December Vintage Marketplace! XO Christie
composing the design...thinking out loud
