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

Hey Joy...Christmas is now over...get those paints and brushes out and paint paint paint!!!!You'll have a blast a be surprised at how easy it is!!! go to Yard sales, flea markets, goodwills,etc...get yourself prepaired for painting, cause once you catch the"Dewbery Bug" LOL you can't stop!!!!

You can order stuff online QVC has alot of stuff, boy did I ever over do it when I saw Donna on there, cha-ching!!! ordered oodles of stuff...

Yip, I have found that the loading of the brushes is the secret, and the thick paint...

Let me know how you're doing...
