Last Tuesday, I drove 400 miles from Chicago, IL to St Paul, MN, the longest road trip I have driven by the way, to teach 4 classes at the Minnesota Quilters Show and Conference. It was a wonderful show put on by an all volunteer committee, very impressive!

|All week my classes were held in a huge room with plenty of space for students to work.|
There were a lot of wonderful paintings, the class created freezer paper masks, textured backgrounds, gradated colors, worked with glazing paint to create more contrast and intensity with color and painted fine lines and details. I always provide images for my students to work with, so they don't have to stress about being creative while they learn new skills.
It's so fun to see the different ways people paint the images, while they practice the different techniques.
