We painted pears in class yesterday and they turned out really nice. I really need to remember to take a camera with me so I can post pic's of what my wonderful students paint.
This is a Debbie Cole pattern and I enjoyed painting it , love the colors.

I know it's November but the weather has been so nice, yesterday it was 78 degrees in Southern MD. and today looks like a repeat of the same.
I think it will be a good day to get the boxes out and start pricing and packing up everything for my craft shows. Only two weeks left before the shows, and with work days that leaves very few days to get it all done. I'm still working on ornaments and a few last minute things to add to my display. I do two shows back to back in one weekend, take it from me that's a lot of packing and setting up and repacking and work for two days and on Monday I can't even move...LOL. But I do enjoy the shows and getting to see the other crafter's and my regular customers from year to year.

I'm seeing more decorative painter blogs and that makes me happy I always like to see what others are painting, lots of times I'll see something that someone else has done and it will inspire me go back and look through my patterns and find something similar to paint. Or challenge me to paint on a different surface that I had not thought about.
If you have a decorative painting blog don't be shy bring it to my attention so I can check it out.
I don't always have the time to sit here and search blogs to find them but I really do like seeing what everyone is doing. Also if your doing craft shows leave a comment I'd like to know what everyone is selling and how they set up their displays. Good luck to those doing the shows I hope you sell out everything.

Hey Cathy, Thanks for the compliment. I was so happy to see that you did so well with your home show. That's something I've always wanted to do but I live too far out in the sticks so I don't think I'd do that well here with a home show. I do enjoy seeing all the things you have painted, some really nice pieces.
Happy painting,
