What Students say about this workshop:

I really enjoyed the class Saturday. It felt really great to leave with something to show. In fact I have shown my german shepard everywhere today.I plan on signing up for your husband's class in August. I can't wait. Tell him that he has some awful big shoes to fill.LOL I can't wait to take another portrait class whether it was animals or people. I'm sure you could shine a bright light in either direction. Both would be great!!!!!! It was SO worth it!
Thanks Again for your time and effort - Annette

Thank you so much for the delightful lesson on painting dogs. I just loved it and I would come to another one even if it is the same. That was so much fun. Today I started painting our other Yorkie. He has a short hair cut so that may be different but I'm ready to play. I had my husband help me get an outside photo of him this morning without the flash and I watched your DVD to remind me of all your great tips. I love your DVD. Great information and you did not move too fast. It was perfect. I only hope I can learn to paint with more confidence and success. I really need a class in mixing paint colors. I think that would be very helpful. Thank you again. What fun! - Pat B.

I have spent a lot of money at other workshops and I cannot believe what I turned out in yours in just two hours. I LOVE what I did with the dog painting! Thank you for encouraging me to experiment! - Kittie D.
