My new DVD

Eucalyptus and Daisies was one of my class demonstrations in San Diego last week, starring my favorite little sugar bowl and a borrowed vase from a friend. I love the sugar bowl so much (purchased from Hobby Lobby with my half price coupon!) I actually bought two of these little guys, in case one ever gets broken en route to a workshop. In my demo painting, I wanted to give the white pitcher minimal frills, so it would not attract too much attention from the daisies, and I chose the eucalyptus greenery deliberately because I knew the cool teal greens would set off the hot pink flowers. I always try to find ways to be a little strategic in setting up my arrangements, and lots of these tips are shared on my new art DVDs. I have one seat left in my November San Diego class, and this will be my last marketing class so I sure hope to see you there! Read more...

The studio models take a bow!
