  1. Good book review by Fay on 2/7/2016

    This is an excellent book and good to keep as a reference

  2. Great overall tips review by Suzanne on 11/18/2015

    This book is chock full of tips about a variety of painting styles and techniques. The works are beautiful, too. However, it was packaged with a "marketing bundle." There were only a few marketing tips compared to all the other hints, so if that's your main reason for buying, skip it.

  3. Purchased Her Business Bundle....Love It review by Pat on 9/13/2015
