News for September:
My favorite season, Fall is arriving.
Right now I'm missing the record rains in Colorado by staying at a lakeside home off Lake Michigan. It is a perfect cottage with it's own lighthouse...amazing! Thank you M.L. !! I'll be back in the studio this weekend, working on commissions, newly inspired and surrounded by the Fall colors coming in.
This November will be teaching two day "Making it Fine Art Workshops' in Houston this Nov. and Atlanta, Feb 2014 with others being formed.

2013-2014 Art Workshops:
More 'Making it Fine Art' Workshops are scheduled for Houston, Nov 2013 and at 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.
