"Demo at Lindale 2018 4" --- Sold

My true love in art is painting portrait and figures. All of my still life learning has been aimed toward to paint human well. I was teaching a workshop at Lindale Texas last month, and I did this demo at the last day of the workshop. We had a great model Megan. It was so wonderful painting this study.

Ponte Vedra Palms

This winter is cold, very cold. In addition, according to Phil the Groundhog, we will have 6 more weeks of this cold winter. Well my fellow artist friends, should we go to Florida?  Paint a few palm trees and practice your understanding may be a warm idea.

In February, I will teach two landscape painting workshops: Ft. Lauderdale (2/20-22) and Ponte Vedra Beach (2/24-27). So far we still have a few openings at Ponte Vedra Beach. Please visit: Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach for detailed info and sign up.
