Pansies on Blue Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 10" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. This one is actually a piece I finished last weekend, but my computer and my camera have had a falling out, and aren't speaking at the moment. I had to load my photos onto a disk to get this one posted, and who knows how it will all get untangled. Meanwhile, I am painting, but my posting might be even more sporadic than it is at the moment. "Oh, la" as my friend, B. would say.

The Spring session of my online class for beginners in oil is taking enrollments now. Our start date is March 18. The cost this session is $75.00. The class runs for six weeks, with a week off for Easter, and a possible extra week, if students want or need it. This puts us done at the end of April. Lessons are posted once a week to our Yahoo group, where students can download and/or print them to save. Along with instructions, there are exercises and homework, always optional. We have a Flickr group, where students can post their exercises and homework, for comments from fellow students and myself. This will be the 4th session of this class, and I continue to add more information as we go along. My students have given me much positive response, and I've offered enough instruction and resources so everybody stays challenged. If you'd like to see the general outline of the lessons (towards the bottom of the description), here's a link to our Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OilPaintingOnline/ or for more details, please email me with your questions, to NelVanL@aol.com I'm planning on a fun class, jumping us into some spring painting!
