Tis the SEASON

the House next door

OK, So the Holidays are a good thing! Its a fun time of year, cause you can use glitter just about anywhere! And the beautiful lights... The lights slowly appear as the sun settles down, linig the shapes of the houses, under their new fresh coat of snow. Some are simple,and conservative, and then some houses look like they are ready to march down the road. I dont get how some people decorate so perfectly, everything is in sync, no bulbs out, colors all make sence...and then you see the house thats probably draining the electric company...with bits and pieces of light strands from Christmas pasts...some blinking, winking, and some are just blink or to flit? What will it be?

Then, those air blowing things, how funny are those if they are not being payed attention to.! When the day begins, the evidence appears... They all look like they were at a crazy party the night before...and have very little "mo-jo" left!

Sometimes, when they deflate, they just drop where ever they feel like it, and it can be pretty comicle, (if you have a deranged sence of humour like my self!) Well, any way, that is my observation so far, and now its time to talk about the store.

I recently got an ELLIEPOOH shipment in, and people have already started to get dibs on it! We have some cute heart shaped boxes, with paper in them, all made of Elliepooh! Great for any age! I still have a lot of FAIR TRADE earings, purses, etc...Really FUN stuff! And last but not least, I have a huge order comeing in from My art supplier. Different kits for kids, drawing, painting, making things, as well as some beginner sets, for those who need a fresh start! That order should be in middle of next week, i hope!

Store Happenings ART TO ART 603-292-3668

Sorry folks about being occasionaly closed, Unfortunatly i have had some private issues to deal with, and havent had the money to pay for someone to come in and sit the store. Business isnt that great...sitting for a week and not one person, makes for a long time...

I am hoping people will stop in during the Holiday season to at least say hi!

Scenes of Newmarket

Hello People!

Sorry not to update more, i keep getting my PW mixed up along with everything else in life!
Just a quick funny...You know your distracted when,,,,you find a roll of toilet paper in your FREEZER! At that point, i surrended...I am rolling with the punches, its the best i can do!

On the good note , I am getting a FAIR TRADE order in today, thats "fun stuff" gifty items...
Im still waiting for some special orders to be picked up,. NEW POLICY...special orders, 50 % down...I pay upfront for everything, and if i have to sit on product, that slows the works.
THings are slow, and its difficult. I know people in general want the store to work, but the way things are going, I dont know how long i can hang on...Dont get me wrong, I love it, i love the people , and i appreciate the people that are doing there best to come to me first when they need something. I am trying to keep product in that people need...
I guess i was hoping for a little more action over Heritage weekend. Its hard when you are one of the only, NON PIZZA stores in town. Not much of a pull...
Anyway, enough whining...I will post some new paintings, at least i feel productive,,,

Sorry i havent been posting!?Classes are on going...

I know i have sent a lot of people to this blog about class info, wich is in there some where!

I have been so buzy with family matters, new Gallery, started up classes etc. I also had no computer for a bit, it was being repaired! Dont you just hate that?

Well, The MONDAY 10:30~12:30 class is underway, but we only have a few students commited. So feel free to jump in at any time. We can "pro-rate" the cost.

As I said, they are on going and i work towards the groups needs, so anyone can pretty much jump in at any time.

I do like warning though, at least a day...I like to make sure that every one feels like they belong, and coming into a group new can be intimidating.

There were several teenagers interested, and i am not sure what happened to them, if you are eading this, contact me, we'll get you in there!

Tuesday eve also has room...Com'on, dont be shy!

I took some fun pictures today, so I am going to post them, just because!

Thanks for reading...see ya round town! Pattie

NEWMARKET — Surrounded by members of the town's government and business community, Pat Ryan-Perkins cut the ceremonial ribbon June 18, on her art supply store that she hopes will become a staple of a thriving downtown.
Art to Art, which opened its doors in April, has become the destination for those in need of watercolors, oil paints, acrylics, pencils, brushes, sketch books, journals and original art.

Where: 106 Main St., Newmarket
Hours: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. As needed on Sunday.
Info:, or 292-3668.
Art to Art has access to framing for those looking to accent artwork, as well as a gift section through Fair Trade, which offers uniquely crafted items. Patrons can special order any item they need, but can't find within the store.
Art classes are also offered by Ryan-Perkins, who specializing in watercolors, for those novices or beginners looking to enhance or discover a new creative outlet.
Ryan-Perkins said she is currently in the process of looking for a second space in Newmarket where she could hold her classes.
Ryan-Perkins said her goal for the store was to create a place where local area artists and art enthusiasts could network.
"There is a strong desire for culture and the arts in town," she said, "and the response so far has been really positive and encouraging."
The ribbon-cutting ceremony last Thursday is the latest in a series of events designed to bring awareness to the town's burgeoning business district.
Town Council Chairman Michael LaBranche, was on hand for the ribbon cutting. He said similar events will be held at Rocky's Famous Burgers, Between The Bread, and E & T Barber Salon in July.
"There's a lot of diverse stuff going on in town," said LaBranche, "and it's good to see all of the different ventures opening up."
LaBranche said the increased business activity has helped to revitalize the downtown district by drawing a large number of visitors to the area.
"It's all helping the town to get back to where it was, but in a different format," he said.
Local business owner Mike Hoffman, who was also on hand for the ceremony, said Art to Art is a great addition to the town and another example of the downtown redevelopment providing a spark to the local economy.
"It's great to see Newmarket coming alive," he said.

I did it, I hope its OK, I havent had it proof read yet!

Pattie Ryan Perkins
watercolors plus!
Suggested supply list.
To start with, decent paper is most important! Montval, made by Canson is a good student grade, as well as professional.
I will give students an INITIAL discount of 20% This means when you get the first bulk of supplies, min. $40.00 total purchase.
I am doing this to compete with the on-line suppliers, because I think its important for people to know what they are buying, and to be able to touch it, look at it, etc. It is very expensive to start painting, so I am doing my best to make it affordable, and if you stay with painting, as you replenish supplies, you can go with the better pigments, etc.

Paints, PAN or TUBE
**Perm Alizarin Crimson *Lemon Yellow
**Ultramarine Blue *Cerulean Blue
**Perm. Sap Green *Hookers Green
**Cad Red Scarlet Lake
**Cad yellow Perm Magenta
**Yellow Ochre Cad Orange
**Sepia Cobalt Blue
The prices on some paints varies by series.** means most imp, *means sencondary, etc
Student grade watercolors sometimes have 2 series.
Professional paints have up to series 5 or 6. #6 Reason being, some pigments are very expensive and hard to get.
We will go over those kinds of things over time.
Brushes also vary in price, but there are many affordable sets, made out of synthetic materials. I have several of these personally, because my brush care is not that great!
Flat, a 1” to 2” flat is good to have for “washes”, skies, oceans, etc!
Then a large round is good, 16 round or larger.
A smaller round, any where from 12 round to 8 round.
Try to get brushes specific for watercolor. I will have a lot of items in the store, and will go over the different types.
If you have stuff at home, you are welcome to bring that in to the first class, before purchasing anything, and we will see what you can use.
I am definitely NOT trying to “up sell” products for the store, and only want you to start with what you need and you will know soon enough weather or not you will be painting for a long time!
There are way too many types of paper, so I will be specific here.
The usual paper that pro. Artist use, it the D'Arches, 140 pound cold press. This is sold by the sheet (22 x 30) for app. $ 8.00 a sheet.
You can get 4 paintings out of one sheet, that will matt a frame at app. 16 X 20. Break that down its only $2.00 per painting.
Then there is **Canson's Montval Paper. This is great paper cost wise, and it will work for the student or professional artist.
The Montval Paper is also 22 X 30, and cost about $3.00 a sheet.
You can buy this paper in pads, as well as “blocks”.
You should have s sketch pad, not too large, a couple of pencils, 2b and 2h. Gum eraser, or kneaded eraser. Masking tape, or artist tape.
Plastic container for water. Paper towels.
You should also have a collection of photos, or pictures cut out of magazines, Calendars etc., that you may want to attempt!

HOME PHONE#_________________CELL_____________-
Availability for sessions. Mark class times that you would like, you can put down more then one. 1 for first choice, etc.
I may have to move things around to fill up classes. You could also indicate flexability.
When you pay for the class, you pay for the month. Your seat is your weather your there or not. If you know in advance that you may not be there, we may be able to adjust. But as you know, I have made a commitment to “pay the rent” so I need commitments in return.
Class cost is $65.00 per 4 week month, $80.00 per 5 week month.
This does include 1 piece of Montval WC paper.
Adult A.M. 10:30- 12:30
Kids Afternoon 2:30- 4:00 (age 8 and up)
(prompt pick up expected)
Adult Eve 6:30-8:30
Kids a.m. 10:30-12:00
Adult Eve 6:30-8:30
A $20.00 Deposit will hold your spot for class desired.
I reserve the right to cancel class do to lack of sign up, then your $20.00 deposit would be returned.
Any questions, feel free to email me at
or call the store at 603-292-3668

june 8

Hello people, art lover, blog seekers...I am sorry i havent posted in a while, but my computer is giving me troubles, and i have to hold it just right to get it to charge...what a pain!
nEWMARKET IS still my place to be, and i am commited to playing a part in the art community.  I am quite possible going to rent a place to have a teaching studio, in town.
I will be doing this with a few other people, and i think it will be an asset to the town.
Its the support i get from Newmarket that gives me the courage to do this, so you people are welcome to give me suggestions, on what kind of classes you would like to see.
My battery is winding down, so i must close for now, but remember to email me with ideas! , or 603 292 3668
