Orchid Exotic is Published!

I just found my Decorative Painter magazine in the mail and my article for Orchid Exotic starts on page 98! It is always a thrill to see your work published but having it seen by all the membership is especially rewarding. (insert happy dance here!!!)

The Decorative Painter is the magazine published by the Society of Decorative Painters and always has amazing how-to articles along with all the news about what is happening in and around the Society. If you aren't a member of SDP, the magazine alone is worth the price of membership!

If you have been thinking about joining now is the time to do it! Not only do you get an amazing quarterly magazine but new members get a really great gift of brushes, paint, etc. by some of our top vendors - such a deal! Check out SDP at www.decorativepainters.org - and tell 'em I sent ya!

Springing with New Ideas

Happy March everyone! It is still too cold here in Florida but surely spring is on the way!!! The trees are leafing & lots of green pollen piling up on the porch & in the pool. Spring also means new deadlines looming and a whole bunch of new projects brewing. Besides new classes to teach, Spring Fling is the first of May. I will be posting photos of my table top then. I am also working on a new challenge that is due the end of this month and will post photos of my finished piece as soon as I am allowed. But here is a bit of my inspiration... however will I use it?
