Time to say 'hi' for 2010

Postby carol.miller » Sun Jan 17, 2010 3:42 pm

Hi! My name is Carol Miller and I live in Chino Valley, Arizona, with my other half, Dave. No critters or kids. We adopt our friends families, grandchildren and critters, so I don't know how we would have had time for our own.

I have been china painting off and on for 30 years, and I just do love to paint china. A co-worker brought in a small box that she had painted and I knew that I had to learn how it was done. I don't believe I had ever seen anything painted on china before. I started classes while living in Lake Havasu, Arizona. My first teacher used baby oil as both a mixing and painting medium. It was very slippery and my first pieces show grainy paints, but I knew what my friend had achieved so I kept at it. A few months ago, I started 'teaching' with ladies who have been painting with me under the guidance our great teacher, Irene Riggs. Irene retired to Virginia this spring and passed me the torch, along with a lifetime of supplies. So now the learning really begins!

I still work full time for the City of Prescott, as I have for the past 20 years. I started as a secretary with the Police Department and am now a computer technician for the Information Technology help desk. I hope to retire in four years. Then I can get serious about painting...
