Well, Kelly, I’m proud you’re interested in learning. You ARE Joan’s (Johnson) grandaughter. 30 something, and never held a brush, I hear. You have always admired and loved your grandmother, and her painting ability and creativeness.
Oh!, your mom was taught painting by Joan, way back when. Tara loved to paint in those years with Joan and was a good student.
The aforementioned scenario above has turned into Kelly’s favor as you are probably surmising. Yes, Kelly and Tara have set aside Wednesday evenings after work to pursue learning about brushes, oil paints, tracing paper, gesso, thinner and patterns, etc, etc. Where else would they start . . . Joan’s, BLENDED METHOD Pkt., Joan’s basic method for oil painting for ALL of her Packets, Patterns and Books.
Tara, has, even with a busy work schedule offered to paint with and teach her daughter what she has learned about decorative oil painting.
Where? The kitchen table, is the spot at present. The photos shown represent a typical “learn how to paint” home venue.
I”m tickled pink (red+white) with the myriad possibilities of Kelly moving through the Blended Method, to Lesson Pkts., to POM’s to Realistic Roses.
