Big Thank you to my Angel Helper Wendy !

angelwendydeb16 I was so blessed at this past workshop with the Pacific Northwest Art Institute on gorgeous Whidbey Island to have an assistant! Introducing the wildly creative and oh so supportive Wendy Lee Lynds . Seriously, I swore I was going to put her in my trunk and take her home to assist with me for all my workshops! Wendy helped with set up, take down, cleaning brushes, taking photos, passing out hand outs, freshening up my water, and even took me to dinner at the end of the workshop. That's for sure one of my Achilles's heel soft spots - I love being fed! Wendy has found a permanent space in my heart. Big thank you!

[Actually I'm really hoping Wendy sees this post and joins me for my Advanced Abstract Painting with Mixed Media in thick layers this November here in Coquitlam, BC, Canada. Details here:]

Here's what she said about taking my workshop:  “Many "AH HA" moments galore - both artistically and personally for me while in Deb Chaney’s workshop. Deb brings to the table equal parts arts professional and genuinely warm-hearted individual. This important combo brought me to a new way to approach my abstract work and the tools to have a painting that reflects “me”when completed. I would take another workshop by Deb in a heartbeat and would hardily point others in her direction, as well….."
