New Paige Dolls & Paintings

I'm taking a couple of on-line courses right now. I'm taking Mindy Lacefields's 24 Faces. Below is a picture of my first painting, after taking lesson one. It's painted on a 5"x5" wood substrate.
Mindy had some great tips for shading and shares the paints she likes to use. I've used Mindy's techniques for developing my Paige dolls. I made three more Paige dolls recently.
I've previously mentioned, I'm also taking Pam Garrison's Painting Petals class and loving painting flowers and learning her special techniques. Below is a picture of some of my sample drawings.

On a final note, I'm was surprised to be published in the latest issue of Take Ten magazine.
Awhile ago, I picked up some vintage paint chip samples from a recycle store. I challenged myself to take one stamp and the paint chip samples and create some cards, mini book and a banner. The article shows all the samples I made.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
