New Watercolor Painting Ebook with Printable Art Files for Greeting Cards

I'm so excited to finally start publishing my various painting ebooks on Amazon! Here's the first , and it's packed with step by step photos of this advanced level watercolor still life project. When it's sized to 8.5 x 11, it's 22 pages, not sure what that turns in to on an ereader.

It's not so much intended as a tutorial for you to duplicate this painting, but a discussion of how I tackled a complex subject which included flowers and china.

There's even a link to a 29 minute video of me painting this watercolor! (If you'd like to see my little youtube painting videos, click here for my channel).

Also, with each of the art ebooklets I publish, I'm including downloadable files (5" x 7" and 300 dpi jpg's) of my art, so that you can print out mini prints, greeting cards, or notecards (you can see the ones which are included in the little box on the cover art).

It's so inspiring talking with people about watercolor, and incidentally I'm starting up a new watercolor class which begins on March 7 1-3 PM at Fowler Park in Forsyth County (near Atlanta). Four two hour sessions are included in the four week class, and we have a good time exploring the medium! Beginner to intermediate levels are the norm for this class.

Thanks for checking out my art, and you can find out more at .

Come Paint a Colorful Tree!

Come and Paint this tree (above) with us at the Parks and Rec multipurpose room at Foster Park! On Monday evening, Feb 25! 
This mini workshop focuses on painting this colorful and cheerful tree on a hilltop. We paint it in acrylics on canvas, and the technique is not very layered: you'll sketch it out (with help if you wish), lay in the sky, then trunk and purply-rusty shadows, then what a blast: put in those golden-greeny highlights and soft and pretty details and shadows in lavernder, pink, gold!
sign up by calling Parks and Rec at 770 781-2215, and you can pay at any parks and rec front desk. The workshop will be held Monday, February 25 from 7-9 PM at Fowler Park's Multipurpose room (click here for map and directions
