The first picture you see is of Memory boxes. They are done for families that have lost infants at birth. Instead of going home with their babies' bracelet and hat in a plastic bag, they are given a handpainted memory box. At the convention they had a table set up with all the supplies and everyone is invited to sit down and paint in their free time. As you can probably guess I did the ones with the zentangle patterns. It's a little more challenging to do the tangles and shading with a paintbrush instead of a pen but it was all good.
The theme of the conference was "U TOUCAN PAINT". I had three great classes pictured above. Some of them still have a few little things to touch up and varnish to be added, but I'm pretty pleased with them all.
Class with Pat Lentine
Class with Judy Diephouse.
And this was our small group of friends at the banquet on the last night.
