Workshop preview

It's driving me bonkers that I don't really have time to blog today. Who knew the last two days of the year would be crazy busy here at this real work desk. Two days that I'm "holding the fort down" alone as HE is off hunting with son and grands.

I want to quickly share a little bit about my on-line workshop that I have been working on.

Just to answer a few questions that you have ask.

First of all, yes it is on-line workshop and I will be using the network. If you have created a profile at Ning, you have finished the first step. More about that later.

You ask if you will be able to view the videos on dial up connection and I don't really know but I'm thinking not. If you are able to watch YouTube videos like the one in the last post, then yes. I do notice that most workshops presenters do say high speed is required.

I'm sorry, I haven't yet committed to an exact day to open registration but it will be soon. Like within two weeks. I hope.

This little canvas shown is one of the projects in the workshop and it is a start to finish in real time with many segments and lots of information. I'm almost done with editing.

This workshop is about Norah'S Faces.
She and I paint in many mediums and will share several face painting techniques.
It is not about painting backgrounds; although, we will create one.
It is not about gel transfers; although we will create one.
It is not about sketching faces; although we will draw an egg with eyes, nose, and mouth.
It is not about napkins; although there is a fabulous bonus video about layering napkins.
In addition to the above face, I have already videoed four others to include in this workshop.
For now, that's all I can tell you as I'm rushed for time.
Looking forward,
PS Just a favor to ask. Please share the word about the workshop because it will be lots of fun.


  1. What will the cost of your workshop be? I have posted links to you before - you always have such inspiring projects...

    Have a great and Happy New Year!

  2. I did as you asked created the account.

    I did watch your other videos with dial up, they were slow but I got to watch all of it and I don't suspect that there will be a definite time of day to watch and participate in the class so folks could do this. I would just let it download and do something else and keep an eye on it so I didn't get knocked off the internet. These were UTube videos I watched so wonder about this also.

    This is so exciting and I am sorry your swamped with job work that keep you from giving this your attention is does make one feel crazy.

    Take some deep breaths and smile.

  3. I love your work and am interested in your workshop. I work ...will this be something one can watch anytime? I've never done an online workshop. I look forward to hearing more. I participated in The Sketchbook Project...just wish I'd had more pales in comparison to yours! My theme was "You stick to me like glue."

  4. I'm excited...I've been hoping you'd do a workshop. I already belong to will wait for more details.

  5. I am so ready for this! Thank you, thank you,thank you!
