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.

During this time, please send only emails or online comments, while I am abroad. No texts or cell phone calls, please. Save this link should you wish to ‘go-along’ with us:

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.
