Allyson Good, Paint With A Passion

Give us a few sentences about YOU.

Originally from Greensboro, North Carolina, I’ve been married for 3 1/2 years to Rick Good. We moved here for Rick’s business in 2013. I was an insurance agent and had never painted, but I had always wondered what it would be like to learn, so I went to a class. My first painting was so awful I threw it in the trash!

Outside of work, what do you most enjoy doing?

Simple things: spending time with Rick, playing with our dogs, cooking and organizing at home.

What is your favorite flower or plant? Why?

The tulip is my favorite flower because of its simple, yet complex petals. The tulip shows resilience by continuing to grow even after you have cut its roots right out from under it! Now that’s a determined flower.

Do you have children or grandchildren? What’s your favorite thing about parenting?

We have three adult children; Ryan, 28, Stephanie, 24 and Ally, 22. Our granddaughter, Leila, is two and we’re expecting a grandson in May.

There is not one specific thing I like the best – I think it’s a mixture of everything we experience as a family that makes it sweet. I get more joy watching our kids achieve a goal or make a good decision than I ever thought possible. I like that I get to watch them live their life.

At Paint With a Passion, how many people come into the studio who’ve never painted before?

I would estimate that 30% of our painters have never painted on a canvas. About 95% of our classes start with blank canvases, and this is one of the things that make our classes so much fun! We never rush you or tell you that you can’t change a color. This is art, and you’re the artist – we encourage you to put your own special spin on your work. Plus, we want you to relax and socialize while you’re in class…as one of our painters put it, “This is THERAPY; it’s THERAPY!”

One way to find out about our specials is to sign up for our newsletter by calling or going to our website – many times we put specials there that aren’t any place else.

We’ve just started selling prepaid class packs for adult and child classes. You get discounts for buying five or ten at a time and have 12 months to use them. They make great gifts!
