This past few weeks I’ve been busy creating new artwork in several workshops.
First, I took part in a wonderful workshop held in Santa Barbara with Skip Lawrence.
Some of my new artwork
Skip Lawrence has been a mentor for many years and has seen me through quite a few changes in my work, from still life to figurative to abstraction. I always value his input and am inspired by his instruction. Here are a few more new pieces that transpired from the workshop.
3 Whites for Watercolorists
Next I taught my own workshop: Three Whites for Watercolorists. My friend Ruth Ellen Hoag hosted me in beautiful Santa Barbara. I neglected to take many photos, but trust me when I say that my students did fantastic work. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve seen some of them posting their beautiful paintings. Here are a few of my demonstrations:
Cold Wax and Oil
Finally, this week I held a 2-day workshop featuring Cold Wax and Oil painting at my neighbor’s beautiful Studio on the Knoll. Here’s a group shot of most of the class at the end of the workshop:
And one of my demonstration paintings
Next up, one more workshop on Oil & Cold Wax at Emerald Art Center next week!I love teaching and taking workshops because it provides me with lots of painting time, feedback and friendships. I hope you’ll join me for a future class.
Leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite new artwork!
