My First Rose Painting Class Project

I had sign-ups at the "Vintage Marketplace" and much to my surprise I sold out of the first date Saturday April 30th. So I will be setting another date June 25th after my show . With this rose design I will be able to work with you on light hitting shapes, some shadowing, mixing and muting color and you can go home with a pretty sign!

 A special thanks to all the wonderful vendors and people who came out to support our show, it was the best one yet!  XO, Christie


  1. I would have no doubt you would have filled up spaces fast and been a wonderful success. Congratulations, Char

  2. I agree with Char, I never doubted of your sucess. Congrats !

  3. That sign is so pretty! I wish I could attend. But then again, I have trouble drawing a stick figure so.... (*_*)

  4. I would go if I could! Your students are lucky to have you for a teacher.

  5. So, "much to your surprise"? Let's see, I don't believe I surprised whatsoever! Who would not want to take a rose painting class from the one and only YOU! Congrat's!!

    Take care, Sue

  6. Hi Christie!

    Colleen, Carol, and I had a great time at the Vintage Marketplace this past weekend! It was just set up so nicely, and it was obvious all the vendors put a lot of effort and skill into making thoughtful presentations. We had a lot of fun and will certainly attend more of these events in future.

    Colleen and I are so excited to be taking your painting class! I'm not the best artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't care, I am just going to throw myself into it and enjoy the process! I just hope I don't embarrass myself too badly ... LOL!

    Thank you for hosting such a lovely Marketplace, and we look forward to seeing you soon for the painting class.



  7. congratulations... wish i could be there..
    a rose for a rose!!

  8. I think it is just fabulous that you are teaching others your gifted talent,i live in the United Kingdom otherwise i would be their in a heart beat,,
    Love to you Kristina xxx

  9. I so much would love to be able to paint like you. The classes are to far away or I would be there begging to get in. So I would love to paint just a rose like you do..just one. So an instructional book or DVD would be wonderful. Sally
