Hillary Butler Abstract Painting Workshop- Pictures are IN!!

The images are in from the workshop I did in Little Rock, AR a few weeks ago! My sweet friend Jessica asked me to be a part of her Inspiration Series that she hosts at her floral studio and I am so glad we joined up for this event! The workshop at Zimmerman could not have been any more wonderful. We had the sweetest group of women who joined us for the afternoon and we had the best time learning and painting together. Jessica and her team have created a laid back, yet gorgeous environment that encourages creativity the minute you enter her doors. Teaching is a passion of mine and it always inspires me to do better work when I get to delve into the process and technique with others. Art is one of those mystical elements of life that doesn't really become art until it is shared and I was so honored that each of the attendees showed up to join me in this journey.  I left more energized and encouraged than when I came!

Head on over to Jessica Zimmerman's blog to see more of the images. Our sweet new friend, Arshia Khan   took all of the amazing photos. Check out her site as well- it's just pure eye candy. So, so thankful for the artistic community that I get to be a part of. Life is so much sweeter when you get to share it with such beautiful people!

Abstract Painting Workshop!

Ever tried to sit down and paint an abstract painting for your walls because it looks so easy only to end up with a huge mess? You aren't alone! Join me Saturday, May 2, at the gorgeous floral studio of my sweet friend Jessica of Zimmerman Events. I'll teach you how to paint an abstract piece of art and you'll walk away with an amazing art starter kit swag bag and your own original 12"x 12" finished piece !! All supplies are included. So much goodness in one class!

And remember... Mothers Day is right around the corner!!! A fun gift for yourself or your mama (or both of you) would be to come to the workshop. Grab a friend or two and carpool on over for a fun day of painting!

I've been putting together these amazing swag bags for the event. Swag bag includes hand painted canvas tote by yours truly, 12"x12" gallery wrapped canvas, acrylic paints, brush set, and some fun tattlys to get us in the artsy mood while we paint. It's going to be an amazing class full of instruction and fun times.

Two weeks ago, I hosted a one-time special paint event to thank my mailing list members for being so awesome!! We painted donuts and also had some for snacks -who doesn't love donuts???  Who knows what I'll come up with next for my list?? I'm always dreaming up fun goodies and treats for them and they get to be the first to know when new pieces hit the shop. So many perks to being in the know!

Also, make sure if you have Gmail to drag an email from me from the promotion tab to the inbox tab so you always see them right away so you don't miss out on something juicy!!!
