According to Thelma, In the early 1960’s when Thelma’s children were small, even though there wasn’t much time or room for a studio, she started teaching decorative painting she’d learned from a book. When the group of students wanted to learn more from her, Thelma started teaching traditional oil painting. In 1985, she received a letter of invitation to travel to St. Louis, Missouri, to meet Bob Ross and become one of his certified teachers. Her employer at the time allowed her to take time off from work to follow Bob around and learn the ‘Wet on Wet’ method of painting. Thelma became certified in 1987 and started teaching Bob Ross technique clinics in Spokane in the evenings. Still working her nine-to-five job on weekdays, Thelma spent weekends teaching all over Washington and Oregon, Idaho and Montana and even Juneau, Alaska. Thelma tells me that when she taught the Bob Ross style, he had asked her to sign her name differently that she would usually sign her other works. She would sign the paintings that she did in "his style" with just a plain "Sevey" as is signed on this piece from a workshop during that time period. She is a very talented artist and teacher to this day, although she tells me that she has slowed down quite a bit.
