First let me tell you a bit more about Ever After in case you haven’t heard about it yet!
“Ever After” is a mixed media art & style development course with a fairytale theme hosted by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 14 popular mixed media art teachers who will all share beautiful fairy-tale & myth inspired lessons with you AND they will also divulge all their hints and tips on how they developed their own style and how YOU TOO can find your own unique voice as an artist! 🙂 Yay!
You can find out all the deets (and sign up with the Early Bird price) by clicking HERE.
My chosen fairy tale is The Wizard of OZ. My lesson will be inspired by this
fairy tale, I have some fabulous ideas cooking! I’ve not fully developed my class idea yet, but I’m excited to be sharing my drawing, layering and perspective techniques with you, much like you can see in this painting I did for Lifebook last year.

I have recently realized how much storytelling is involved in painting, or at least the type of painting I like to paint. I’m looking forward to particpating in EverAfter this year to see how different artists tell stories in their art.

  37. Hi Lindsay!!
    You had me at “Wizard of Oz” as your subject!!
    Of course, I have always loved the story! And our Mom made watching it on TV once a year a real event for my brother and sister and me. This was way before the rights to these types of movies were available for multiple showings all year. It was only shown in my area once each year, in the springtime. We would get to have soda/pop and chips and dip for a real treat! Many, many years later I got my first Cairn Terrier – same breed as Toto. And it was love at first sight. I now have my third Cairn, and we watch WoOz whenever it is on, and of course, root for Toto! So, count me in for all things WoOz!! I even have that stamp set you’ve shown before that has the yellow brick road stamp, along with classic renditions of Dorothy and her friends.

  55. I suffer from anxiety and depression, art helps me survive. This last year has been extremely difficult with a sick spouse, and my own health issues. Putting all that aside, I find solace in art, the way the paint feels, the dimples in the watercolor paper, the smooth ink and creamy gellatos. Texture is in everything we see and feel in the artistic world, but also in our lives. We learn to navigate the curves and pain and smiles and tears all through the beautiful art that is life. Taking a jaunt into fairy land would be an awesome opportunity to escape a bit of reality for a moment and dream on clouds of cotton candy and and sunflower suns. I would love an opportunity to color outside the lines of life for a bit! Love, Jeannie
