van Gogh Paint & Love Party {a.ka. Paintologist Training}

In this Thanksgiving season, I'm feeling blessed and so lucky to be part of an amazing company surrounded by talented artists who love painting as much as me!  We worked hard, hard, hard for three full days but it was a ton of fun creating and learning together.

With the launch of our fabulous new product, Furniture Frosting, and a brand-new color, ‘And Your Little Dog Too’ (a solid, opaque red) , I had the opportunity to train with Scottie Vosburgh of By Scottie and Mandie Morris, owner of Altar’d Market in Houston.  If you are ever in the Houston area, you must stop-n-shop at Altar’d Market.  It’s a beautiful store with talented artists making ahhhhmazing pieces.

Mandie and Scottie are two of the most talented ladies I know and boy did we have fun playing with all the new products.  My head is still spinning from everything I learned over the three days we spent together!

We made lots of sample boards using the van Gogh products: Embossing Plaster, Glamour Glaze, Luminous Eye Shadow, Furniture Frosting and of course, all the paint.  The versatility of all these products is amazing and they work in unison perfectly.  Kind of like our team van Gogh!

 I loved watching such a large group eager to learn about van Gogh fossil paint and leave ready to paint everything not moving!  Now, I’m even more excited for my own upcoming workshop December 7.   There’s still room to sign up if you want to get in on the excitement!

I'm back and ready to apply what I learned on my next projects.  :)  Stay tuned to see what I come up with.
