Hello ladies!! I just stumbled onto this site and thought I would offer some suggestions. Start by reading everything you can find on roses...painting books,patterns,gardening books and videos.Practise everything you read. Don't knock Donna Dewberry..if you can get her videos get them!! Also...Donna Lee Parella. If you can take painting lessons..do it....oil and acrylic. The way I learned how to paint was through trial and error. I was very frustrated and was in tears because I knew what I wanted to paint but didn't know how. Many artists did not want to share nor help...and because of that, I have decided to help everyone that asks. If you have any questions..please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Or you could visit my web site sarneseart.com and petalsbytinkerbell my Ebay ID. I'm just in the middle of listing some new items. I'm also writing a book on my romantic roses which will be out next year!!!
Remember....never stop learning...
