color drop happiness


i am totally convinced that there's no better play than art-day-with-your-girlfriends play.   and play is exactly what my sweet girlfriends martha, rynda, denice and terrye did yesterday.......in a color-drop flower kind of way!  martha showed us how to paint her adorable little color-drop flowers.....



then, after our lunch break (which was really just an excuse to eat some chocolate), we painted up some poppies!! 




  and the really great news is that you can learn how to paint her color-drop flowers, too!   martha is an absolutely fabulous teacher......i really think you'll fall in love with her easy southern style just like i have!!

thank you martha for a spectacular day......you've made me feel like a painter!!  xo

you can read more information about the color-drop flower class here!
p.s.  a little birdie told me there might be a poppy class in the future.....stay tuned!!

These are really, really wonderful. I was wondering for a moment if Martha had taken over your blog- love seeing this technique here and your "spin" on it!!

Your color drop flowers are exquisite. I think I was the first to sign up for her class. You're so lucky to have each other. I'm jealous.

I always love the way Martha paints, especially her beautiful flowers. When I clicked on your blog I thought I was in Martha's blog with those beautiful flowers you have painted (color dropped). Great way to spend the day...with friends and art and chocolate. Happy relaxing weekend to you...

I love Martha's classes. So funny that I had JUST signed up for the color drop class this morning before reading your blog.
