As the weather turns toward the holiday season, we naturally experience some comfort adjustments.  But living in Florida, I hadn't expected it to get SO COLD earlier this week.  Of course the forecast warned us, but still - it's only mid-November.  So I blew a fuse at the studio right before my model, and best friend, came for a session, and we worked indoors in about 60 degree air.  Bless her heart - she was cold, but very gracious. I am full swing now into a few Christmas commissions, as well as getting paintings done for my show in January.  Last couple of weeks I've thrown myself into online 'stuff' - website tweaking, and...

Did you miss out on the chance to purchase your favorite original painting?  An image that really sent you...the one that you were certain you had to have because it brought forth a fond memory, told a story, or simply brought fresh joy to your day? This brand new print gallery collection includes my most popular work from the years 2011-2014. Here you will find all of your favorite images. It's a place where you can view and consider each image carefully because here, there is no such thing as "the one that got away"!

• Announcing one day, 3 hour intensive COLOR MIXING sessions at my studio, Sally Shisler Palette Knife Painting Studio, in Winter Garden Florida.  These sessions are designed to help students prepare for their own paintings that they will paint at home with their premixed palette. This is all about thorough color mixing; not actual painting. Each student will be provided with a high quality color print of their selected photograph with a clear breakdown of which colors will be mixed. Preparing a palette of clean, harmonious color before putting knife/brush to canvas gives you a head start on a successful painting. Sessions are held on the second Saturday of each month. Cost is $50. Beginner-Advanced. Space is limited to six students. Please call or email me at 321-331-3045 or to secure your spot.

Private Lessons at my studio in Winter Garden, FL. Cost is $100 for three hours. Those interested, please call or email me at 321-331-3045 or to make an appointment.
