“This is just a short note to thank you for sharing your wisdom with me. I wanted to let you know that I learned a lot about what is involved in painting an abstract. While I have been painting abstract art for a couple of years (after many years of painting realism), prior to your class I didn't have an adequate road map for the process. You provided a great deal of valuable information on mediums, mark making, tools for making those marks, good composition, and preparing a canvas. For that I am truly grateful. I think now my paintings are much more alive and interesting. I hope to return in the Fall, but in the meantime, I will continue to apply all that I have learned. I just placed my order for Atelier toning grey and toning yellow, so that I can continue to use them when not in class.”

"I had a wonderful time at your class yesterday. Even though it was my very first time painting abstract art, I felt very comfortable. I would like to continue. But, I know there is so much to learn and I now have the time (Yippie!). Thank you for the wonderful day…"

"This morning I read over all the material you gave us and am excited about trying out the things we learned. The workshop was great and full of lots of ideas. I was glad to learn how to work with acrylics a little more. Thanks for a great day and workshop."

"Just wanted to let you know how much your workshop helped me. …Please let me know if you have more workshops. I work full time for a bank but am willing to take vacation days. Your workshop made a significant difference in my work."

"…I had an incredible time and I loved every minute of it. I have always hoped that there was an abstractionist hiding inside of me but I have only tested it a couple of times. If I were closer I would come to paint in your museum classes. Thank you so much for all of your beautifully planned lessons. It takes a lot of work and experience to make it look so effortless."
-C. Sandifer, Key Largo, FL
“What a wonderful workshop! I am so full of new ideas and things to try. It has opened up a whole new area of images and ideas to me. I loved the way it was carefully planned and executed so even a beginner like me could learn a ton. I think that must be hard to do (having beginners and advanced painters in the same class), and you carried it off brilliantly. You are the best Sally and I look forward to taking another workshop.”
-S. Ley, Key Largo, FL
"I would like to thank you for the abstract approach that we worked on last week with you. This was my first experience in abstract. I thoroughly enjoyed the work and your expertise. Thank you for a busy/exciting three days!!

"…I really enjoyed the workshop. You really know your 'stuff' and it was fun to just let go and have fun with shapes and color. Not nearly as many 'rights and wrongs' as watercolor. I may try some combo of abstract and realistic….would you say impressionist? Anyway I had a great time. I'll be following your website."
