For Christmas this year my daughter's gave me a gift certificate for Donna Downey's studio classes here in NC. I am lucky enough to have her studio only 9 miles from my house. We took her Pan Pastel class. She is awesome and so much fun. This is my board. I learned so much about Pan Pastels and how you can use them. The colors are even prettier in real life.
This is her bathroom in her studio. Last year she offered up over 300 paintbrushes for sale and you were to decorate them and send them back to her for display in her bathroom. So amazing to see all of them. The bathrooms in her studio are the best part. So much creativity.
She was kind enough to take a picture with me. Look at all that amazing artwork she has on her walls. I thoroughly enjoyed this day. She oozes creativity. If you ever have the chance to take a class with her do it. Well worth the time.
Some of you asked about my blog header. That is a picture of what my kids gave me for Christmas. One of my all time favorite gifts.
