Amazing, it has been a very busy and successful few months - all jammed into the last 40 + days.
I want to thank all the supporters and purchasers of my artworks. Thank you for keeping me busy with your commissions and travel. I'm looking forward to more adventures and the Alaska workshop definitely comes to mind.
McNichols Civic Center, Denver
Exhibiting this month.
Mark Lunning of Open Press is one of the premier printmakers in the country. He is celebrating his 25th anniversary and I am honored to have two of my monotypes included in his special exhibit at the McNichols Civic Center, Denver. Displayed will be what Mark considers as some of the best prints made in his studio by 30 artists. Thank you Mark for including me.
Scanning the calendar, I'm looking forward to my Making it Fine Art workshops. It is great fun to meet other artists, offer your best and watch the changes taking place. A few weeks ago I gave a private lesson to an artist that flew in from Canada and just finished a workshop in Georgia. I'm doing it again with private and group lessons this week. These workshops not only take your work to the next level, but sometimes careers are put on the fast track. It is always a fun and rewarding experience. I hope to see you somewhere soon.
