2014 Holidays have Arrived! Begin your shopping right here with a gift of art – even give one to yourself as a special memory. Follow this red link to new paintings I have completed this year, either plein-air or as demonstrations in one of my workshops. Special holiday prices!
Attached are two paintings I finished in the High Hampton Inn workshop in Cashiers, North Carolina mountains. See many more photos on the Travel Blog link. The fall color was spectacular!!
Above are two demo watercolor paintings I did while recently in Italy. The first one is in Scopello at the Tuna Factory, Italy. It is a well-known landmark in Sicily. I was demonstrating how to do water and reflections. The second one is at the top of the mountain in Ravello, Amalfi, Italy where I was demonstrating textures and the effect of light.
PAINTING WORKSHOP RETIREMENT
I have decided the time has come for me to retire from teaching painting at the end of this year, so I have more personal time to paint. I am already committed and will do a workshop with Tuscany in the Frame in Italy next September, 2015; it will probably be to Venice and another location yet to be determined. This has been a very tough decision as I love teaching and you, the students so much, but it will be a good one for me. I fully intend to still travel and paint. Idle, I will not be!
|There is still time! A very few places remain for the Painting Holiday Workshop in the North Carolina Mountains at High Hampton, Cashiers from October 12 – 18, 2014. An all-inclusive week of art! – painting, art-talk, tennis, golf, hiking, great food and much more. It is the perfect venue – unpack once, turn off your phone, and be immersed in art, the fall color and atmosphere.

Recently, I enjoyed a trip to Iowa, my home state, to get together with my 4 siblings. We often don’t get to spend time with each other as we are spread far and wide. Below are a couple of quick plein-air watercolor sketches of the Cedar River and watercolor class with my grandniece.
