What Doris’ Students Say…

(Quotes below will scroll through…)

“I started working with Doris via zoom last November and am a beginning painter of watercolor. Doris meets everyone at their level and provides encouraging comments to make the painter feel valued, as well as to push the painter to new heights using this medium. As a full-time caregiver to my husband who is suffering from a stroke, I do not have a lot of time to paint. However, despite that, Doris’ classes have given me a yearning to paint and improve my artistic skills. I have discovered that painting gives me great joy and solace. I have also discovered that watercolor painting is absolutely the best medium! “- DY

“Hi Doris.  I decided you were absolutely right.  Since the pond showed up on its own, it was begging for skaters.  Also played around with the background trees a bit.  I have sooooo much to learn.”
