News for November:
It is the month for Thanksgiving.
I am very grateful for those that have graciously brought my works into their homes and purchased them for their corporate collecitons. I'm happily busy with new commissions and exploring new images.
Recently a selection of my works were reproduced as tapestries.
It's always interesting to see reproductions done in various ways. Last year a hospital enlarged some of my pastels to cover portions of entire corridors. It was an amazing look. Other works have been printed onto aluminum substrates so they can be used in outdoor settings.
Just for fun, here's a video (below) from the Sands Springs Ranch in Alberta, Canada.
I had a wonderful time being hosted by the owners Ty and Janice Shelton. They have large organic farm with livestock. I had a great time and they 'let' me feed the pigs. What a well-behaved group of piggies. Did I mention their amazing carrots?
In 2014 I will be teaching two day "Making it Fine Art Workshops' February in GA, July in Alaska, and Denver in February 22-23.
Other workshops around the country are yet to be announced. Ken also gives private and closed group lessons. More info

I have really enjoyed giving private lessons over the years as well. It is casual, focused and fun. There will
be a big result. Give me a call and we'll discuss what works best for you.
