I am proud to have participated in the 44th Annual Society of Decorative Painters Show last week in San Diego, CA. I cannot begin to tell you just how fortunate I feel to learn, grow and expand as an artist from this group. Thank you to DecoArt, Inc. and Turtle Hollow for the opportunity. There is no better way to show off this entire past week then this slide show HERE……
There are so many great memories from this show….here are just some snippets..
Special thanks goes to this lady, Nadine who heads up sales at CHA. She makes things happen and happy to call her friend. Also happy she will be the first smiling face everyone will meet at Ministry of Mixology in October. That is the welcome you will not forget! (plus she has a way of keeping me together).
Special thanks goes to everyone who came by our booth, who asked questions, who wanted to see more and more. To Decoart, Inc. for their wonderful range of products that I had the pleasure of sharing. To the ladies of Turtle Hollow who welcome me, challenge me and are just a pleasure to work with. To SDP and CHA, thank you for everything. This is one of the most hard working and giving group of people I know.

Long-term success in life is a trifecta of ability, motivation, and attitude. Ability is what you’re capable of doing every day. Motivation determines what you actually do every day. And attitude determines how well you ultimately do it. Keep this in mind, and keep yourself in check.”

Thank you sooooooooooo much Tracy for the wonderful video. I truly loved seeing all the people, places and things. Thank you too for putting names – love knowing who the faces belong to. I love traveling the world with you! You did a FABULOUS job!!! j.
We are headed to England next Joi so make sure to pack an overnight back! 🙂
Tracy, …..Were there any specific trends in decorative painting this year at convention? I paint in acrylics and am always wondering what will be the colors for this coming Christmas season? Any idea?
Hi Ruthann, I wish I had more time to walk the floor and/or take classes. This may be helpful when it comes to paints. These are the new colors for DecoArt for 2016: https://decoart.com/blog/article/182/2016_new_decoart_products__color_additions including new Americana colors and neon pastels. Right now metallic gold is hot, hot, hot! Hope that helps
