Inside the November 2005 Issue — Fast Forward to Fall!
Right now, we should be enjoying the remaining days of summer, but the soon-to-arrive autumn season is beckoning us to “get in gear.” With that in mind, this issue features “spooktacular” designs for Halloween, guaranteed to delight both the young and young at heart! Also, we are pleased to present a variety of harvest home décor projects which reflect the tantalizing colors of the season.

Debuting in this issue is a new column, “From the Bottom Up,” by Vicki Rhodes, CDA. This column will present projects to entice and excite every level of painter and incorporate the use of a drybrush technique to create texture in your painting. Each project is accompanied by an online drawing lesson by Cynthia Bowman, CDA, to further spark your creativity. Click here for the online lesson.
