 :) Just posted about how Dennis and Nolan are the best art teachers ever and how I learned to draw from Paint Basket by taking Nolan's Dog Drawing Course.  There are drawings of my family's pet dogs and more. See http://artwithaloha.wordpress.com
I am expecting more interest in Paint Basket and more visitors here since I also posted on my other blogsite 'God's Enduring Love' at http://heulu.wordpress.com

Aloha Everyone,


Posted today 'From Drawing to Painting!'  http://artwithaloha.wordpress.com


It's about  how I started to draw with Nolan Clark's Dog Drawing Course which led to painting family pets. Coming up next will be how Paint Basket drawing classes and the Let's Draw course gave me a good foundation of skills and techniques that could be used in painting! 


Cheers,
~Liz  :)

 :yippee: Great installment Liz!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :heeha: I remember all those dogs so well. I loved the photo you took of all the pups together, I still think it would make an amazing painting.  :whistle:   I know just the artist to do it... she's brilliant!   >:D    ;D      :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

VAL, the pups all grew up!  Here's Hoku at 2 years old.  Once in a while he visits his mom, dad, aunt, and one sibling.  The other 4 are in other families.  I wish I had time to paint the dogs again, but I have other paintings to do for another fundraiser coming up.  :) ~Liz

 :thankyou: GITA,  Wordpress blogs are really easy to start.  I was able to use my own flower painting instead of one of many headers that are available, but I couldn't change or move that block from the middle, so I just left it.  So it's there by default and I know so little about computers that I didn't want to try to mess with it anymore.  Thank you for coming by and do come back again!  :)  ~Liz

Liz, you are a real pro at this! I could never keep a blog on a regular basis, I just write when the mood strikes!  :crazy2:     ;D

VAL- I do like to write journal style, but not every day.  Twice a week on Tues. and Sat. From Hawaii.  I read on somebody's blog that he writes because he likes to write.  If some people find his posts and read, GREAT, if not he would read his own posts!  I'm glad that some folks have found my blogsite!  :) Liz
