Teaching again in 2019

I have made the huge decision to begin teaching again after April 2019. I have missed you all, painting with you, chatting with you and seeing your progress.
It will be 2 years since I last taught or demonstrated and during that difficult time, there were days I felt I would never paint again, never mind the idea of teaching. However, as time passes I have begun to realise that I need to paint, not only on my own, but I need to share my experiences with you. As I said, I have missed you.
I have felt excited about painting again, and will be experimenting and developing new ideas and projects over the coming months. 

I have already agreed to teach for the Pure Watercolour Society at Windrush House near Burford next September, this has only just been agreed, so its not available to book yet, but places will be limited and more information will be available on the news page as I have it for you.

I am determined to begin 2019 with a positive mindset, for my own wellbeing as well as my family, so if you phone me and the answer machine goes on, I may be in the middle of a wash, and it wont necessarily be the laundry! 

I would like to wish you a wonderful Christmas wherever you are, and I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kindness and support over the last 18 months, it has certainly helped me to get through this difficult time.
I hope we will be able to paint together next year, if not in person, then perhaps I can master the mysteries of the video camera, and add some film clips to this blog! 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.

So delighted you are starting to feel a bit better enough to pick up your brushes and start painitng. Terry would be so pleased that you are doing what you love, showing others how to painting. Unfortunately as I do not live on the English mainland, I cannot attend any of your live group painting sessions and therefore look forward to viewing your new paint along videos. Happy Painting Fiona 🌹Shawdian
