Jack-scarAs many of you know my sweet studio dog Jack was diagnosed with cancer last month. The vet found a tumor on his belly that needed to be operated on right away. Within 2 days he’d had the surgery and after a few complications he is now cancer free and on the mend. I’m so very thankful that he will be OK.

Now it’s time to celebrate! I’m combining my spring studio sale with a party for Jack. Expect a big cake and wine as well as plenty of great art and some fun and unusual auction items. Jack will be available for belly scratches and photographs all afternoon.

Welcome the changing of the seasons with me in my cozy Oregon studio by making a beautiful waxy ornament to decorate your windows or trees over the holidays!

I’ll have my make-n-take holiday ornament station set up again this year, so stop by and add wax to your favorite photograph or drawing for a festive reminder of the year. If you’ve always wanted to work with wax, this will be a fun, easy, free introduction. These are kid friendly too so feel free to bring the family.

I’ll also have snacks, drinks and great gift ideas from small paintings to large wax scrolls all at 25% off, plus gift certificates for classes and more. I hope you can join me! Read the rest of this entry »
