CHRISTMAS GREETINGS!

Hello painting friends!

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!

Seasons greetings and Happy Chanukah too!

This is just a short note to let you know I'm getting the studio ready for 2010.

Any project ideas or suggestions are always welcomed, so do drop me a line.

Have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!!

Cheryl





QUOTABLE ART QUOTES

Being 'spiritual' simply means being willing to

look into the nature of life,

to ask questions and to wonder, and to listen.

It also means seeing art everywhere. - Quang Ho






WORKSHOPS

As most of you know there are now 4 navigation buttons on the website. You'll see WORKSHOPS, MORE WORKSHOPS, MINI WORKSHOPS and MIXED MEDIA CLASSES.

Presently there are no projects on display...but there will be soon! So do keep visiting often to have a peek at the exciting projects coming your way.

There are plans for doing Christmas-themed projects all year round as well as more Open Studio time.

Mixed media continues to be popular with you all so I will keep adding new techniques and special painting effects to those sessions.

There has been a lot of demand for 1/2-day workshops on the weekends so I'll be doing more of those for you too.

As always, snacks and lunch are my treat.


3rd ANNUAL PAINT IN

FUNDRAISER

Our annual Painting for Charity event to support

PARENTS' LIFELINES OF EASTERN ONTARIO was a huge success!!!

We have surpassed our goal of raising $2000. As soon as I have the final dollar amount I will be posting it to the website.

Thanks to you who made this fund raiser so successful! Here's all the information.




RECIPE FROM THE STUDIO

If you know me, you know I love cooking as much as I love making art.

So I have launched a new website which will become huge over the next few months.

It already boasts some terrific recipes which are ideal for entertaining this time of year or any time!

You can now access all my best recipes here. If you want to share your favorite recipe with me, I'll cook it and do a taste test.

If it's as great as you say it is, I'll post it on the site and give you credit!

Enjoy!!
