    I fell in love with the paintings in this magazine, and have been waiting for a sale to buy it! Got it for 50% off, and oh my goodness, it is SO worth the money I paid! So much information to learn and so many hours of videos! I do not think you can get anything like that on the market for this money! So far everything I bought from this school was just excellent!
