May your holiday season be warm, and filled with gratitude, blessings, and plentiful happiness.
Can you believe that it is already Thanksgiving? I feel like every year goes faster and faster. Do you have any plans for the holiday? I will be spending time with my family, hopefully sneaking in some art time as well, and preparing for the Made in Tucson Market on Sunday the 27th!
I am SUPER EXCITED about this market because my sister, Alo Goods, will have her tent set up next time mine! She will have her AMAZING, all-natural, zero-waste soap products and I will have my art on display. The weather in Tucson is beautiful this time of year and this market is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season with my sister. Be sure to stop by our tents and say Hi! 👋🏼
From our Community
I LOVE seeing fluid art masterpieces that YOU created! I am excited to share a photo Jamie sent me of one of her masterpieces and I LOVE it! She used the colors from my Color Combinations and Schemes eBook (a free eBook in the shop).
What do you think? Didn’t she do a beautiful job creating this?
SHARE YOUR ART! You can post your art images in my Paint Pour Academy Community Group on Facebook, you can email me and you can leave a review in the store (including an image) with the course you used to create your masterpiece.
I have more exciting news to share. A new body piercing studio has opened up in Tucson, AZ, and Syd has offered to display my art! Her studio is BEAUTIFUL! She has worked hard at creating a serene and calming space that is family-friendly. Stop by and go see her new space and see my art gallery!
I am SUPER excited to announce that my applicated has been accepted to the Made in Tucson Market! This is an exciting market hosted by the Historic Fourth Avenue Coalition that showcases over 300 of Tucson’s local artists and vendors. I will be putting up my tent and displaying my art, which will also be available for purchase.
And I am also SUPER excited that my sister was also accepted to participate in this event! She owns Alo Goods and Soapy Friends. We put in a request to have our tents next to each other… we are crossing our fingers! What a fun day this will be! Be sure to mark your calendar so you can stop by and say “HI!”

Ice Princess: Simple Doodle Art Embellishing on Paint Pouring Canvas Art
Hi👋🏼 I LOVE Acrylic Paint Pouring, but sometimes the designs need a little more to finish the story the art is trying to tell. Being a child of the ’80s, doodling has been a long-time practice of mine (especially during history class in high school, lol!) I am very excited to share with you my Ice Princess! I had so much fun making her, and I thought you would love to make her, also! I have created an online tutorial course on www.PaintPourAcademy.com. This course includes the template I created for this project, a downloadable workbook to guide you along the way, and my doodle practice sheets so you can learn this art before you work on your original Paint pour canvas art.
Resin Glass Vase with Dimensional Paint and Alcohol Ink
Hi👋🏼 Welcome to my art studio (A.K.A my spare bedroom!) Have I told you how much I LOVE to pour resin on glass vases? I thought I would try something a little different this time. I have some dimensional paint that I drew on the glass vase and let dry for 24 hours. I then added clear resin and dropped alcohol ink on it. Super fun and stunning results!
