Learn how to paint a wood-burned lazy susan with Sue from Blossoms Studio!
February 20th, 2020
Class fee of $65.00 includes four hours of instruction, use of brushes and paint, and a 12″ wood-burned lazy susan.
Paint your own version of this 12 inch humming bird lazy susan,
complete with base and turn table mechanism. Each student will receive
a 12” pine round board that has the wood burn image ready to paint.
Sue will demonstrate paint application, brush strokes, color mixing and
simple shading to complete the project. According to Sue, “even though
each person has the same image to work from as a guide, all the
paintings turn out so very different.” Students are choosing colors they
like and using strong or soft strokes to give it personality, each piece
will be unique to the person painting it.
No experience needed, Lazy susan already assembled, all materials
supplied. Dress for a fun mess!
Sue owns Blossoms Studio in Land ‘O Lakes, WI, which she opened in
2013 after relocating back to Wisconsin. Her studio is on a picturesque
small lake, surrounded by trees and lots of wildlife. Working in acrylic
and latex paint, she paints and wood burns on found objects, antiques,
new wood, barn wood and canvases, mostly all with a north woods
theme and Southern Wisconsin farm scenes. She still loves Wisconsin
barns and cows!
Sue is on the Northwoods Art Tour in July and October and sells her
work at her studio, Moondeer and Friends in Boulder Junction and
Stone’s Throw in Bayfield, both in Northern WI.
Sue graduated from UW-Madison in 1979 with a major in Art. She
moved to southern CA where she continued to paint and after raising her
family Sue returned to the Midwest and now lives in Land O’ Lakes
with her husband Gary. According to Sue, “I have been painting since I
was a child, dragging home driftwood, oars and anchors from trips to
Bemidji Minnesota. Painting on mom’s antique furniture and anything I
could get my hands on. Nothing has changed! My work is fun and
functional, and makes you smile. I would love to share my passion with
