Tree Trail Painting Workshop - Saturday November 28, 2015 

Come join us on Saturday November 28 to paint my trademark Tree Trail design!

Click the Add to Cart below to purchase your spot in the workshop $50.00 Canadian 


Click the Add to Cart below if you wish to purchase a Candle Box $10.00 Canadian 


Workshop starts at 9:30 am and goes until approx 4:30 pm or until we are done!  

Cost is $50 Canadian which includes lunch, as well as basic supplies such as tracing paper, palette paper, cotton swabs, paper towels, sandpaper, wood sealer and finishing varnish/spray.  You need to bring your own brushes and water basin.  Once you are registered, I will send you the pattern via email which will include the brushes and paints needed for this project.  You are welcome to bring your own paint for this project, or are welcome to use my studio paint for a flat rate of $15.00.

I have several wooden candle boxes that would be great for this project.  Check out the picture to see the sweet old fashioned candle that is included.  These sell for over 25$ retail but I can sell them to you for $10.  If your aren't interested in the candle box, please feel free to bring in any wood or canvas surface of your choice.  The design is set for approx 11 x 14, but can be shrunk down easily enough to fit elsewhere.  

Should I have to cancel the class, your workshop fee will be refunded to you.  Should you have to cancel, I will refund your workshop fee if I am able to fill your spot, otherwise, it is non refundable.

This is a very easy and fun project that will leave you wanting to paint again and again.. an no surface will be safe!

Live Well Love Much Laugh often


Serene pastoral scene painted on a solid wood mission style storage bench!  

Everyone is tucked into their homes as the sun sets into the background.  Sheep lazily graze as they wander the fields

Great bench to store everything from winter gear as well as summer!  Everything from mittens to ball caps can be neatly hidden from view and easily accessed!

How to order... Humm....??? 

The Paypal shopping cart system on this website is not configured to give shipping costs, due to the varied cost of shipping to different countries.

Having said that....

There are two ways you can order.  First is by using the Order Form located in the left hand toolbar.  Simply fill it in and submit it.  I will contact you from there.

Second, is to click on Add to cart, which will take you directly to a Paypal order form, where you can continue to shop, remove an item or continue to check out.  Once that is done, I will email you with a shipping charge.
