Does that sound like you? Have you ever thought that you could paint if you would only give yourself a chance?
I began painting in 2001, though I wanted to try it much earlier on. I bought a kit with birthday money, and I was hooked!
I was doing okay at home on my own, but at the invitation of a friend, I attended my first class, 1 1/2 hours away. I fell in love with the class, and the teacher was awesome!!
So, true to my nature, I dreamed big, and went to certification classes. I earned my first certification in 2002, then went on to become certified in florals and wildlife techniques.
I also paint portraits of people and pets, and usually have a commission in progress. I'll make a page for them soon.
Jimmy and I married in 2013. I'd been painting a long time by then, and he fit right into the scheme of things.
He helps me set up the classroom and tear it down. He shows the students' masterpieces in the "Magic Frame" in class. We all look forward to him coming in toward the end of the class.
But, it's not just about me,
Jimmy's also quite creative and he developed a great little wind chime made from recycled bottles. I paint them by hand and we sell them on this site, locally and at a few craft fairs around the Southeast.
We have many, many repeat customers and some of them purchase 5 to 10 wind chimes at a time.
So check out what we have for sale! By attending a class, or purchasing from us, you support a couple of people that really appreciate your business.
We are Christians and we love the Lord. We thank you for being a part of our lives.
Jimmy, Faye and Rufus
