Wrapping Up 2017

Can it be that we're already wrapping up another year?  What a fun year it was for us and we hope each of you were equally blessed surrounded by your friends and families.  A heartfelt welcome to all the new subscribers to our email newsletters as well as the new followers on Facebook and our blog.  A special THANK YOU again to all who purchased work from us this past year!  We so enjoyed the commissions and look forward to upcoming projects with many of you.

Be sure to check out the blogs on our Residency at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum and our show at the Waterfowl Festival.  We taught over 300 kids and adults miniature painting techniques and had a FABULOUS time doing it! The new year is already shaping up to be one of our busiest yet with invitations back to shows, business trips and family visits.
Don't forget to check out the blog posts for more fun and photos!
