I hope this holiday season has been a fun-filled one for you, and I wish you all the best for 2017!
With snow on the ground here in Bend, I hope to have plenty of snow scenes on the easel over the next few months, and I look forward to sharing them with you!
I'm getting revved up for an active year ahead! In addition to my workshops, I'm excited to be part of the faculty of this year's Plein Air Convention in San Diego and the IAPS (pastel) Convention in Albuquerque. I'm also thrilled to announce that I'll be among the featured artists in this year's Door County Plein Air Festival in Wisconsin this July!
One other piece of news to let you in on ... I'm in the initial planning stages of developing an ongoing online instructional program. This is what I can tell you so far: It would be through my Painting the Poetic Landscape website, which houses my instructional video series that was launched this past fall. My plan is to provide short lessons online through this same website, as an extension to the lessons taught in the video series. Students will be able to complete their own painting based on each exercise and submit it for critique. Stay tuned ... more info to come!
In the meantime, I hope to continue sharing some painting tidbits, teachings and thoughts here on my blog. If you'd like to study with me "live and in person," please take a look at my workshop schedule below and see if I might be coming to a studio near you this year!
