Look how I spent my Weekend

I had the opportunity to be invited to teach decorative painting at the Heart of Utah Decorative Tole Painting Society in Orem, Utah this weekend.

This is a photo of me with the finished project.

It is a group of wonderful ladies that I love to teach for and be with.
We painted a Barb Jones Scarecrow and Pumpkin design on a wide weave black fiberglass screening in a barn wood frame. The original pattern can be found in the October 2004 edition of “Painting” magazine.

Denise and one of two that she painted.
Liz and her painting.
Donetta and her scarecrow.
Jill with her framed artwork.
Carey with her favorite man!

Just a few of the finished or almost finished projects at the end of the day. 
We had great fun, food, raffle prizes, and chatter.
