Once again, I won't be able to attend this class as we are celebrating  "Father's Day" but I will catch up when the replay comes out.  Enjoy the lesson everyone and Happy Father's Day to all the Dads.  Patricia

Jennylynn--That is so great!!! You are getting mega-good!.  This was very unnerving today.  Missed the beginning of class and the end so just did whatever.  Great to learn abt how to do trees like this though.  Thanks tons Dennis!

Here's my first paint along ever!  It was a real challenge but I think it went pretty well considering.  There were a few frustrating moments and I know there are mistakes.  The building on the right isn't exact, but oh well....
