I visited with Janine today and she told me she goes to two local rest homes to teach painting, and one of the individuals paints with their mouth holding the paint brush!  Now, that is a strong desire to paint, and a talented teacher!  Janine says, “It’s all in the heart, no matter how you get it on the canvas!”  What a beautiful thing to know!!  I’m so in awe of her student and her abilities as a painter/instructor.  Go, Janine!!! I am your fan!!!

Anyone interested in a painting class may call to schedule.  The studio will be closed July and August, reopening in September.  SO BE SURE and do your paint parties and classes pretty soon and get in on the summer portraits before fall falls upon us!  That special friend or family member really would love a painting class for birthday or anniversary!  You may see me, too!  Ginger
