Sorry, but I won't be able to make it to class this week. I'm traveling beginning on Friday and throughout next week, but I am definitely looking forward to the next class on pebbles! Have a great class everyone!  :1hug:

Jani, Sorry you won't make this weeks class. 

You might consider signing up for the Poppies class anyway, @ $9 it will save you money rather than paying the $14 later when the replay comes out.  You can still see and use the replay, even though you are missing the Class.  Just a thought, if you like Poppies   :flowers:   ;)

Have a safe trip   :wave:

Pretty soon-- the hour is nearing. Have fun painting everyone. I'll be watching for the results on the media strip. I always do, even if I am the ghost in the corner these days. :detective:

Wish I could paint-along today, folks, but I am awaiting a call to pick up my friend who is being released from the hospital today.

Have fun.  I'll be looking for your paintings when I get home.
