NaMoPaiMo day eleven

Today I learned that painting tack is harder than making it.
I was all alone in my studio, but in Pennsylvania, Erika Ipes hosted a NaMoPaiMo party. Attendees included Maddie Kline, Linda Perry-Horst and her eleven year old daughter, Emily.

Erika demonstrated basic airbrush technique...

and Maddie showed everyone how to use oil paints.

Then, everybody got to try things on their own. This is Emily using Erika's airbrush.

That's so much better than my first (and only) airbrushed model!

In New Jersey, Christine Jordan and Heather Puleo got together for a NaMoPaiMo mini painting party. Christine's Native Dancer started out blue..

Heather's Mini Hazel underwent a similar transformation.

Look how great this basecoat is! She's going to be a stunner.

It makes me so happy to see hobbyists getting together to paint and socialize. This is what NaMoPaiMo is all about. Congratulations, Erika, Maddie, Linda, Emily, Christine and Heather. You are the NaMoPaiMo Champions of the Day.
