Those are absolutely gorgeous, Karla! The glitter adds an extra beautiful touch. I know your workshop guests loved getting a hand-painted ornament from you! There's just something special about a gift you hand craft. It's like giving a part of yourself.


Those are beautiful! What special gifts.


I'd buy one or two :) they are gorgeous

Grammy Karkie, I know a lot of little Dorkies that would love an ornament for Christmas...(and one freckled dog).

Do you remember the ornament with two Shelties you painted for me to give to my friend Robin? Just the other day, Robin's mom told me how their whole family loves that ornament.

You've made a lot of Christmas trees very special for a lot of people!


What a special personal gift from your hands, they are so beautiful and I'm sure your boys consider them precious gifts from their childhood from their talented Mom. I'm sure the girls at the workshop loved them and now they are proudly hanging on their trees. Hope your Christmas is beautiful and wonderful this year! Linda F.

I used to have a whole collection of portraits from every dog Id owned, till my tree got knocked down a few years ago.... I love painting yorkies, no matter how alike they all are, each has its own personality that has to be shown in a portrait.

Karla, I LOVE my ornament. I am still enjoying spending the day at the cottage. I had such fun and made such beautiful projects. It was a great day, thanks.

Thank you, Carrie!


Please get your brushes out and paint more! I love your painting style, and I have quite a few of your painted ornaments from about 5 or 6 years back! Love them all and they make me smile when I put them on the tree!

Karla Nathan

Thanks, Gail! You love roses as much as I do.


I love these more than I can say, Karla! You remind me that my paints are my pal and you don't keep friends unless you play with them a bit! I don't know if there will be time this year -- I hope so. But this is definitely on my agenda!


I'm so happy with mine! It's on my blog today...and now so great to know how many memories come with it!

Laura Strack

Hi Karla, Maybe you should have a little Tutorial, in your shop, on how to paint these lovely ornaments? I would buy it, for sure! Happy Holidays!!

Karla Nathan

Thanks for the idea, Laura. Maybe Ill do some spring roses, that could be a nice tutorial. But Ive run out of time to do it for ornies.
