“Thanks to Ruth for a wonderful art workshop yesterday! Thanks for your patience and all the golden nuggets of hints and tips. I’ve come away with not only a lovely painting that I can’t believe I created, but also with more confidence than I arrived with, plus heaps of enthusiasm to just get painting on my own. I’m looking forward to the next opportunity to paint with you. Lot’s of love.”
