The last few weeks have been filled with a Georgia workshop, new friends, a burst of new oils and large commission projects.
I want to thank the Glynn Art Association and Carly Hardy for organizing my GA workshop and making it a great success. Some amazing works resulted and the group encouraged me to make the beginnings of a nice oil Huddle at the Ocean, on site.
Another seven foot commission is in the works and an abundance of other new oils are clamoring for attention in the studio.
Ken teaching the art workshop in St. Simons, GA
Saturday, March 22 I'll be doing a one-day Making it Fine Art workshop with the Heratage Fine Arts Guild, Arapahoe County. I was told this week by a very experienced artist that this workshop is not like any she has ever taken. She said that the tools for making fine art and the larger-view career strategies have produced immediate results. Please contact me if you want me to do a workshop in your area. I hope to see you somewhere soon.
