If you've always wanted to paint your fur family but been afraid to try...
🎉I’d absolutely LOVE to help you celebrate your pet in a watercolor painting (cat OR dog).

Find the confidence to finally create paintings of your pets that you can be proud of (even if you haven't picked up a paintbrush since college)...
🎨There’s a reason that students are so busy taking commissions, even though they don’t have a ton of experience yet, and commissions are not even the goal of the program!
People. Love. Pets.
💜 It’s a special kind of love that only a true animal lover can understand.
.....Your pets are like your children.
.....You think about them throughout the day.
.....You wonder what they’re doing when you’re not around.
.....You find yourself getting funny looks from non-pet-people when you talk about your pet.
🐕 So why not take some time to learn to paint pets?
👀 Hope to "see" you on the inside.
💕 With love and gratitude 💕
P.S. If you’re wondering whether my students were already professional artists when they started with me, they weren’t!
They started in the same place you are now.
And their first attempts did NOT look like the paintings they now do.
I believe that you can do this too!
And I’ll be there holding your hand every step of the way.
🎁 Imagine this December you’ll be giving pet paintings as gifts to your friends and family too.
I can’t wait to see what you paint!
Listener shout out of the week!
“I enjoy your podcasts. I really related to alter egos. I don’t have my own style, so I enjoyed that episode also. I have worked at the same company for over 41 years, so I don’t even have my identity. My husband and three children shaped my ‘off’ time. I am retiring in 6 months, so I will revisit your episodes and take off my training wheels and develop myself. I’m listening while typing and just heard about the man who waited, retired and died. Hope that’s not me!!!!”
