    I just finished the 1st painting in ‘The Secret Rainforest’ – love it! Just the sort of thing I enjoy painting, and your wonderful step-by-step instructions make it such an exjoyable experience. I love the way I can complete one of these paintings in a day, or if time is an issue, I can take weeks. Thanks so much for another excellent DVD!

      Hi Linda – you’ll love the DVDs. I went shopping in Moorabbin for some more art supplies yesterday – make sure you have lots of white! I’m hoping to complete another couple of the DVDs during January. Did you enjoy the storms here in Melbourne yesterday? Certainly made for an interesting Christmas – but I much prefer this weather to 40 degrees +. Have a great day – enjoy your painting!
