Butterfly & African Violets Painting Pattern Packet

I'm happy to announce the creation of my very first painting pattern packet, Butterfly & African Violets. It was a project that took many many weeks and like most other things in life, turned out to be more of a challenge then I expected. I'm so pleased with the results though and I hope this tutorial will be the first of many to come.

This pattern packet is dedicated to a wonderful blog reader of mine who is also a budding artist. She gave me the idea and motivation to come out with my first painting packet as well as being the inspiration for the subject matter itself. Thank you La Rae from PA!!!


This pattern packet teaches you everything you need to know to create the Butterfy & African Violets you see pictured. The painting was done on a 6" x 8" gallery canvas but the pattern included can be inlarged if you wish to paint it on a different surface.

The tutorial comes with 18 full color photos as well as 17 instructional pages that can be printed out if you wish. It is available in two forms....an e-mailed PDF file or a CD-ROM, whichever you prefer.

For more information or to order, click on the widget in the top left hand column of my blog and it will take you directly to the website page it is listed on. I hope anyone who purchases this packet will show me the results of their work as I would love to feature their artistic creations on my blog.
