    Advanced Pastel Techniques/Landscapes!

    The second class will elaborate on landscape composition and provide some advanced techniques of under painting with turp. or watercolor, layering and mixed media that will enhance your options in working in soft pastel.

     

    Materials – Full list provided with signup. Sanded paper preferred as support. 9 x 12 sheets will be for sale @ $2.00 ea. You do not HAVE to do under painting to paint at this class and just work on other techniques and composition focus.

    NOTE: You do not have to have a huge number of pastels for these classes. This is more about getting started. Recommended brands: Rembrandt, Sennelier, even Nupastels which are considered hard pastels. A small beginners set is fine. Since it is landscape some greens and blues are recommended in your mix. This is a casual, get acquainted with the pastel medium opportunity, so bring what you can and get some help with the next steps!


  2. April…Our First Anniversary

    This time last year, my sweet husband and I stood on a ledge overlooking a river of churning rapids. Not literally, but when reviewing our choices, that’s what it felt like. Should we close the antique store that had occupied one side of our lovely vintage downtown building in Redding? Or, should we step, well, more like plunge, into potentially perilously deep water?  Would we float or sink?

    We’d never been in the retail business, and we didn’t know much about antiques, but we did know about business. We’ve started several…some failed, others muddled along and a few proved to be amazingly profitable. So, hand in hand, we jumped…committing to keeping the delightful antique store afloat.

    We started with 10 dealers…and lots of uncertainty.

    One year later, we have a full house…with 60 dealers and a beautiful new O Street Gallery that has been embraced by the art community! It’s been an amazing year! We are most grateful to our original 10 dealers who stuck with us, the new dealers who signed up with us and the Redding community and beyond, for their continued support. THANK YOU!!
