"all good" was the demo I did for the second day of the workshop. Our goal was to paint loosely and thoughtfully. I really need to be reminded of all the tips I shared with the participants. I should read the handouts every day before I begin painting. They are just a culmination of the things I have learned from teachers I admire. Below are all of my peeps with some of their work. We worked hard and they all took home several pieces. I cracked the whip after a forty five minute lunch and made them get back at it. My wonderful Mom prepared the lunches for us so they were well fed.
If you are interested in doing a workshop with me I have another one planned for Sept 13 and 14 at my home studio in Birmingham, AL. Email me at email@example.com for the information.

”cow lick” was my demo piece for day one of my workshop. It is painted on an 8 x 8” canvas. We had a great group from all over. It is so nice when everyone clicks and there is lots of laughter and hard work going on. We worked on animals the first day and still life the second. The main focus was on painting loosely. I strive everyday to produce works that look much more effortless than they were. It does not come easily but through lots of hard work.
I will share some more pictures of their work tomorrow. Such a fun, kind and talented group. My studio is all cleaned up and lonely now.
I am planning one more workshop for now. Sept 13 and 14. One day we work on still life and the next day will focus on loose figuratives with the palette knife. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

Most importantly we will be discussing colors, brushwork, and composition both days. I limit the classes to nine so you will get a good bit of one on one instruction. The workshop is at my home studio in Birmingham, AL and includes lunch both days. Email me at email@example.com

I have finished my show season until the Fall. It was a great season but the wet weather was abundant at many shows. I am thankful for all the new friends and patrons that I met this Spring. It is special meeting the folks your work goes home with.

I am still searching on the canvas. This is a large 36 x 48 x 2" canvas. I am on a little horse jag right now. I used to be a bit intimidated about capturing their beauty. Guess I am facing that fear.
I would like to announce that I am planning a two day workshop here in Birmingham March 8 and 9. I typically have them at my home studio but friends have offered their new gallery/studio space that is much bigger. It is a wonderful space with lots of room to be creative. We will be working on painting animals and still life with expressive brushwork, color and light. Email me at email@example.com for more information.
