Patti, I thought you were wonderful. You helped me simplify paintings and think of design not just what I see. Your way of teaching values, especially with color, makes a very difficult concept easier to grasp. You were very organized and available to everyone. You are a wonderful painter and were very generous sharing everything you could with us. The workshop was a great experience and fun. Keep me on your list for other adventures!
Thank you for everything.  Suzanne A.
