Att: Gina from Indiana

Gina, Read your post about the one stroke painting. I

had seen Donna Dewberry on PBS a couple weekends ago and

was really interested in her painting. Yesterday, at

Walmart I bought a video, Basic Strokes, and a book and

some brushes. I have always bought cheap brushes , but

I thought if I was going to try to learn I would invest

in the good brushes. I have put it all away until after

Christmas or I will not get any of my Christmas stuff

done. I think one of the secrets is loading the brush

right and also practice, practice, practice. I am really

anxious to get started. I will have to get a couple of

the work sheets to practice on. Walmart did not have

the ones that go with the video. I am going to try to

order them on line. Thanks for the encouragement. JOY
