Whimsical rooster use colors of your choice,  plus  some “stroke work” that will be fun and easy.  Background any piece a dark color.  I used black.  I also used a liner and small filbert but use the brush you are most comfortable using.  I watch a rosemaler named, Art of Lise, on you tube and she uses a round brush to do her paintings.   I have two sizes for the pattern:  The little one is done on a black disc almost 3 inches round.  I used Royal Fuchsia, metallic gold, sour apple, bright yellow, white, peacock teal and bright orange but choose your colors because there is no rule here.  The other pattern measures about 6x6 so you can do on any size surface as long as it fits.

Colors of your choice, Brushes of your choice

Surface of your choice to accommodate a small rooster pattern (3 inches) or the bigger pattern that will require at least 6x6 inches to paint.

April 17thProject:  Stick Roses on wooden cut outs Kathy Swigon 

We’ll be painting little rays of sunshine in April with stick roses on wooden cutouts.  These are from Dollar Tree but are probably no longer available since I painted them in February.   They have other seasonal cutouts that will work.  I originally painted these as Random Acts of Kindness for my mom to pass out to her friends in her assisted living facility.  You can paint these stick roses on any surface...note cards, little gift boxes, notebooks, any shape of wooden cutouts, Easter eggs, etc.  you will only need  4 paint colors, a bright pink, white, light green and medium/dark green as well as several different sizes of dowel rods, pencils with flat erasers, crayons or even palette knife with  a flat handle end.  I decoupaged printed paper napkins to the back for added interest.  They go very quickly so prepare more than one surface.  Let’s see how creative we all are !

January 16thProject:  flowers on glass plate Vicki Fornito 

Leaves can be any colors of green utilizing a dark and a light color, no need for a middle value green unless you want as we will be blending the dark and light beside each other which will create a medium value.  Flowers’ colors will be one color plus a white or if you want to utilize a third color to add more dimension that is fine.  Geraniums come in a lot of different colors so pick your favorite colors if you want, you don’t have to go by what I used.  There is no pattern for this piece as you will not be able to put a pattern on a glass unless you want to paint it on which is up to you. The following list is what I used:

Using Folkart  Gloss Acrylic Paints OR  DecoArt Multi-surface Gloss Enamels use the following colors:  Depending on what paints you can find – you can mix the two paint brands, they do fine.

Folkart  - Thicket (Dark Green)

Folkart – Hauser Green medium

DecoArt – Apple Green for a lighter color if you wish

Folkart – any Red

Folkart – any pink

Folkart  - any orange

Folkart  or Deco – WHITE

Folkart or Deco – Dark Red

BRUSHES:  Filbert – size 8 or 6 depending on what surface you are painting on.  If you are using a large white plate – I used an #8 filbert for the leaves

                     Medium sized flat brush for the leaves

                      Any liner brush

                      Stylus with a medium fine tip

Additional Supplies:   Large white dinner plate which you can buy at the Dollar Tree   Regular supplies needed for painting
