Happy New Year!

I want to thank all my clients and customers for making 2015 a great year! The new studio at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment has allowed me to sell my art and expand my services. To better reflect my current direction, I'm changing my logo and tagline. It's time for something more artsy that reflects the clean lines I love in my design work and the natural subjects I depict in my fine art. Be sure to check out my new website too.

Every week will be a different lesson on acrylic painting. Acrylic paints are fast drying and water-based, so they don’t require special solvents for cleaning. Each lesson is designed to provide information on choosing materials, the basic principles of art, color theory and acrylic painting techniques.  These lessons are perfect for someone just starting in painting or someone that wants to learn more about art principles while using paint.

You can sign up each week or whenever a class fits in your schedule.

December Classes

On the Drawing Table

I'm working from a photo of a poppy I took at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. So far I have used only Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. This is a large piece, 16" x 20", on Strathmore bristol vellum.

Sweetness!

I had the pleasure of creating this pet portrait for a special surprise Christmas gift. With a pup as cute as this, it was about impossible to go wrong.
