I need a teacher when I am in class! You were my teacher! You have the gift not only of being an artist but also a damn good teacher with your demo’s!!
Not everyone is gifted to teach, but you are! Hope you will come back!!
You opened me up and I am so grateful for it!
THANK you Susan!! I needed you on my path to start to paint! So much of beauty is in me from seeing and enjoying, but unable to express myself.
You taught me and will teach me how to get it out of me!
Now so much looking forward to come to the farm and meet again!
