Welcome!  Wanda and I are pleased that you are visiting our web site and we invite you to look around. Hopefully you will find it well organized and easy to navigate. There are several sections including one with background information on the two of us, as well as Bob Ross and the “wet on wet” painting style that we teach and he made famous. Let me take you on a quick tour of what you will find here....

Store: This is a section where you can look at paintings we have completed and you will see that some of them are for sale, framed or unframed. They are broken into different categories, including Landscape Paintings, Floral Paintings, Seascapes, Etc. We hope to add additional items as we go along. Check out the other items also available for purchase. You will also see a catagory for Synthetic Ceramic Tiles which allows us to create simulated tiles from photographs, (ours or yours).

Classes:  After years of teaching group sessions I find that now my legs just will not allow me to cover a full classroom and give the quality of instruction students deserve.. Private classses, with no more than two students at a time are available but must be scheduled by contacting me directly. You can do that by sending me an e-mail with your name, phone number and general information about your wishes. You can also direct any other inquiries or comments about the site or what we do to me. My e-mail address is: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  Or, you can call me at 208-539-7732.

Updates:  If you are interested in seeing postings recently completed classes, notifications of new items being listed for sale and/or receipt of an on line newsletter that will keep you in touch with us and our students then please, visit this section. There is no fee involved and we do not share your address with anyone. Just list your name and e-mail address, and then hit the subscribe button. This will automatically give you notification of  (See New Paintings)  or (Receive Our Periodic Newsletter) If there are any you don't want to receive, then you can change the selection. There is also a tab that will take you to archived newsletters and you are welcome to go back and review those mailings.

You will find that this is an active site, with changes on a frequent basis, and the newsletter will keep you up to date on what is happening here.

Purchases:  You will find a number of our paintings and other items listed for sale. Some items are already framed and are shipped that way. Most of the paintings are shown as unframed, but you can add one (we will pick one from our ever changing inventory) that compliments the painting and will then ship the two, ready for hanging. You will find the cost of frames very competitive but must tell you that we do not sell frames separately.

And, from time to time we will have sales on selected items. If the SALE tag is showing at the top left portion of this page, click it and it will take you to the items that are offered at reduced prices (often a savings of up to 50%). These change often, so be sure to check here frequently.

Payment: For your convenience, we have made arrangements to accept remittance via Pay Pal. We do not accept any other type of remittance on line. In the event that something should happen to a product in shipment we will authorize a return of payment to you. We want to have a long, mutually rewarding relationship and will do our best to insure that you are completely satisfied.

Shipping: Under normal circumstances, all product will be shipped promptly via UPS and when you order, the cost of shipping is automatically calculated. Ordinarily we will ship within 5 days and most often sooner than that.

Links: In the course of doing what we do, we meet and deal with a lot of excellent vendors and individuals. There are currently two sections to this header. First you will find "OTHER ARTISTS" where we feature the works of talented artisans that we think you will appreciate. This is a section that will grow as time passes. The second area "OTHER SITES"  is where we provide current links to vendors or related businesses that we hope you will find helpful and interesting. You will find a link to the Bob Ross Company, Quality Art and other related businesses. We will change these links on occassion as we find places that we feel will be of interest to you.

Finally, if you are interested in classes or Joy of Painting® supplies, but live in an area that is not convenient to our Apache Junction, Arizona location, then go to the links page. The Bob Ross entry has a list of all of the Certified Instructors, hopefully one that will be able to help you. They also sell supplies.

Thanks for visiting us. Hope you come back soon.
