Winter Peace is the newest painting in the studio, and was the demo for my class today here in Flower Mound. With a vase full of fragrant stargazers I could not resist pulling out the purples and greens and seeing what happened next. My student did a beautiful job on her hydrangea painting, a large one she just about finished despite having to step over my studio helpers. This student insisted the helpers participate in class today, much to their delight.

Having the whole family participate does lend a few comedic moments, when all four helpers lay side by side like overstuffed sausages in front of the easel, or the Boss decides to place three of her stuffed toys directly in the path of the palette table. And then there were the moments we promised we would never speak of again, when one of the helpers had a bit of flatulence. It takes a special student to want all the babies in the studio during a lesson, so this wonderful gal earned double gold stars! Tonight I have four exhausted, happy pugs, and a new holiday painting to share with you. Winter peace to you and all of your loved ones, from my home to yours!
