Christmas gifts don’t always come with packages, boxes and bows

the Grinch says “Christmas gifts don’t always come with packages, boxes and bows” but we know sometimes it is nice when it does.  Every year I share gifts and tutorials of some of my favourite projects.  1a Collage of free holiday theme projectsThis year I teamed up with Catherine Scanlon to create a series of free e-books that you can read on line.  The books can be found on Issuu by searching the name MerryMeeting Arthouse or clicking this link. All of the books are designed to introduce and grow your skills in painting techniques and mixed media.
