Donna’s wholecloth painting project

Donna Ramsey, a woman who took my Wholecloth Painting class earlier this month, e-mailed me a few days ago to show me what she’d done with her piece. Look at this darling little bag she made!

“It was such a pleasure to take the class with you last Friday,” she wrote. “I was not good at paint by number either,” she wrote (I had told my students that my process was a lot like painting-by-numbers, so there was nothing to fear!). “However,” she continued, “I love my finished product. One of the best things about a project is the enjoyment in doing it, and the pleasure of calling it done. I made my block into a bag and love it.”

Thanks, Donna!

C&T’s latest catalog

C&T Publishing chose to put my work, “Rusty Chevys,” on the front of its Fall 2011 catalog! What fun!
