News for May-June:
The summer is starting off nicely.
The Ritz-Carlton in Beaver Creek installed a number of my giclées and more oils and pastels have been purchased for private and public collections. This month my commissioned oil will be installing in the new annex of the Castle Rock, CO Adventist Hospital. Two large oils installed in Boston, one of my favorite oils is now in a Denver private collection and a number of delicate giclee skyscapes installed in the Dell Children's Medical Center, Austin. I am very grateful to all of you that made this possible.
"Making it Fine Art Workshops' are now scheduled for Houston and Atlanta with more being formed.
Also I'm happy to announce my representation with the Steamboat Springs Center for Visual Arts.
Sales of my works there (we are already doing well) help to support this non-profit, community resource.
And just to make sure that things wouldn't get too dull around here, I've written and published a non-art book in the last month called Manifesting 123 ...and you don't need #3.
At its core, the book is about how your thoughts make things happen, good or bad, and how to bring wonderful things into your life. I have been gifted with the most remarkable teachers and extraordinary experiences in this regard. If this is of interest, visit my website and order a copy of the paperback or e-book and sign up for the book's newsletter
. The information is truly life-changing as many stories in the book will attest. I'll be reading from the book and signing the first copies Sat June 15 in Denver. events schedule
The US pre-sales and overseas orders have been surprising! That's the only non-art book plug you'll ever see in this newsletter, so thank you for indulging me here. Visit the Manifesting 123 website
...and no, I'm not quitting my stimulating day job, making art! I really enjoyed the writing process, a bit like painting, but that's another story.

More 'Making it Fine Art' Workshops are scheduled for Houston, Nov 2013 and the beautiful St. Simons Island, GA, Feb 2014. Plans are in the works for two-day formal painting and pastel workshops in Denver, Cape Cod, Ventura County, CA and New York. If you are interested in joining or want me to teach in your area, please let me know and we'll plan a great event. Two-day workshops, $265. In the Workshops, we will be discussing strategies for making fine art and taking your art to the next level. Private Lessons: 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.
