Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. You can see some of my work including painting at my picturetrail site: www.picturetrail.com/elenahg Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Thanks again, Helen

wow good for you...I love the last painted girl.... Jill Maas does funny girls doesn't she? I want to get her pattern for High Octave Hester... with her snooty nose in the air.... lol....

and may I just ask about the painted things. do you paint directly onto fabric..or do you prepare with gesso or something first? Or...mix a fabric medium with the paint?... just curious because I will have to paint my girl's legs and arms to match the colour I put on her paperclay face and am unsure about fabric painting. I am looking at lots of info online... some is more helpful than others. I will use acrylic paints...
