News for October:
It is that inspirational time of the year with the fall foliage everywhere.
The painting below, As the Trees Glow
was started some years ago and has been through numerous phases, all less than successful until this Fall. The surrounding colors outside the studio window provided the dramatic solutions.
The second oil, Snow on the Foothills
was begun as a painting demonstation at my Denver art workshop earlier this year. It finished just as the first real snow arrived in Denver last week. It is interesting to see the heat and cool of these very different oils in the studio together.
In 2014 I will be teaching two day "Making it Fine Art Workshops' February in GA, July in Alaska, with another in Denver at a date yet to be announced.
Other workshops around the country are yet to be announced. 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.
