Snow Birch – Fri., Apr. 27, 2018

This cool "Snow Birch" painting is from Bob Ross's "The Joy of Painting" PBS series season 26.  This painting is totally different in the way we will be painting it - Bob calls this method "color glazing".  We will only be using the oil paints to "glaze" the canvas with color - the actually "painting" is done with gesso!  So for a really cool and fun time - you MUST try this!!!!  This painting is very simple for the first time painters.  And super cool project for the experienced painter, too!

Bayou Meets Ocean – Fri., Apr. 27, 2018

This is a Bob Ross wet-on-wet technique painting created by a Bob Ross certification instructor.  This is a beautiful painting with a different composition then Bob would paint.  With southern style trees covered with Spanish Moss and a palm tree near the ocean's edge.  A lovey pink sky - what is that saying.... pink sky at night, sailors delight; pink sky in morning, sailor take warning.  We will paint this on an 11X14 stretch canvas with a two inch border to make a lovely built in matte.  Actual painting on canvas will be 9X12.   It is a perfect size for someone looking for something to fit a smaller wall space!  It would also make a great, one-of-a-kind gift!

Golden Rays of Sunshine – Tue., May 1, 2018

This simply gorgeous painting - "Golden Rays of Sunshine" is from Bob Ross's PBS series "The Joy of Painting" season 28.  This is an amazing painting.  In this painting Bob teaches us how to "Color Glaze" our painting.  We do not actually paint with the oils, but "glaze" our color on!  SO. MUCH. FUN!  We begin with a black canvas and will use gesso to paint the beautiful woods followed by "color glazing" our painting!  This process is so enjoyable and fun; and everyone will be impressed with your creation!  I do hope you will come and paint this cool painting with me!!

Through the Window w/Cardinal – Tue., May 29, 2018

Ah... probably one of the most requested paintings... "Though the Window" with the addition of the Cardinal w/shimmering snow!  This is an extremely poplar painting and students say it is the most requested from family and friends!  So... what that being said - we are going to begin early this year with our Christmas List!!!!!  I will be offering this several times throughout the year for those who are being asked "please paint that for me!"  This painting is from Bob Ross's PBS series "The Joy of Painting" season 30.  While Bob does not paint the cardinal - WE WILL!  This is truly a lovely painting.  Picture yourself, sitting back with hot chocolate (marshmallows, whipped cream and chocolate syrup added - of course), looking through the window at the winter wonderland outside your window and a surprise  little red visitor stops by to say "hi" and to grab a lush, juice berry for dinner!  This is a magical painting that you surly will want to add to your collection.

Camp Fire – Sat., June 2, 2018

This AMAZING and totally different Bob Ross painting is one of my top 5 favorites!  This painting is from Bob Ross's PBS series "The Joy of Painting" season 3.  For those of you who are familiar with Bob's wet-on-wet method were we always begin with applying liquid white, liquid black or liquid clear to the canvas before we begin painting, well, we do not on this one!  This is truly unique.  I had so much fun creating this and you will, too!  This composition is unique from Bob's usual paintings - the dark, night sky, warm glow of the camp fire, the cowboy sleeping against the tree to the fire light reflections in the water!  This is a one of a kind.  If you enjoy camping or camp fires this is the painting you must have!  It would make a great gift, too!  Plus, you can change out the cowboy for a hiker with a back pack leaning against the tree!!!  Remember, as Bob's says "This is your world".  So I hope you will come out and join me in painting "Camp Fire"!
