Welcome to Painting with Marge!
Many of you have enquired when I will be restarting my painting events. After many discussions with my family, I have made the hard decision not to have in-person events going forward. As many of you know, Painting with Marge was a full-time job. From prepping for events, scheduling, marketing, teaching, cleaning up, etc. to making sure every student had everything they needed to successfully complete a beautiful painting. I am not going to lie – at times it was exhausting and incredibly stressful, but dang was it rewarding! When we were forced to shut down last year due to the pandemic, I was almost relieved, and it forced me to take a much-needed break.
Then the most wonderful thing happened in January of this year, our little grandbaby Ella Grace was born. Being a first time Mimi has been so exciting and we are blessed to have her close by. After supporting our daughter and fiancée through pregnancy and delivery, without question, I became Ella’s caretaker when they go to work. Most of my time is devoted to her and I have shifted my business from teaching to creating art, poured jewelry, and sublimation items, which many of you may already know. However, I do plan on having occasional Zoom classes for those of you that do not mind painting with me virtually.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has supported me from the start, my friends and family that assisted me during events and those that came to paint with me. Thank you for putting your trust in me and for taking this wonderful ride with me.
Finally, I am so grateful to the amazing venues that let me come into their spaces every month for over 2 years. I could not have done it without you!
