I was overwhelmed with gratitude while prepping artwork for shipping. Thank you to everyone for commissioning me to paint your beloved pets, buying prints, and tickets to workshops. Supporting an artist goes far beyond just purchasing materials and a service. It's supporting countless hours of trial and error and really helps to shake off the doubts and fears that come with being an artist, well in my experience anyway. Thank you all for your support! .

UPDATE! The date of the watercolor workshop has been changed to Saturday, April 8. There are only 9 seats left! If you live in Jackson, it will be like a staycation retreat. See link in profile to register. 
Watercolor Workshop: Saturday, April 8, 2017, 10:00am-3:30pm, cost: $65

Ginger Williams Cook is leading a watercolor workshop on Saturday, April 8, from 10:00am-3:30pm, hosted by Tammy Oliver Cook of Ice Tree Arts in Flora, Mississippi. The studio is located minutes away from the charming Town of Livingston, and tucked away in a quiet country setting.

Arrive at 9:30 am for a cup of coffee and some conversation on the front porch before the morning session begins. The workshop will focus on a variety of watercolor techniques including color mixing + color theory, understanding different types of watercolor paper, and an experimental approach that encourages confidence of materials and the creative process.

We will take a break for lunch around noon and travel to The County Seat, a farm to table restaurant, located in the Town of Livingston. After dining in town, we will return to the studio for the afternoon session and wind down around 3:30.

Beginners are welcome and all art materials are provided. Lunch will be purchased on your own. Directions and details will be emailed after registration.

When we left the house to walk Stella, Griffin (Eloise's friend & neighbor) picked a bunch of flowers for her. Then it turned into a collection walk to put in her nature tray on top of my Mom's table. Oliver's bounty was one very angular gray rock. ๐Ÿค—

Cat's eye. I am excited that so many cat portrait commissions came through. This is Frank. I still have many glazing layers to go, but I'm loving it so far.
