A "Yellow Flower", Just Because

While most of my work falls under one of several categories of subject matter, once in a while I paint something a little different.  "Yellow Flower" is one of these pieces, created either in a workshop, or just because I felt like it.

The "Glenview Gang" 

The "Glenview Gang" is another impression of birds that I finished up over the winter.  This one found itself a home pretty quickly.

Almost the Orange Blossom 

Here's a photo from my return to The Orange Blossom Opry.  Notice they call me Bill in this I guess you can call me Billy Bob.  I must have made quite an impression!   Kidding aside, thanks to the folks for having me out again! 



The Orange Blossom Opry 

OrangeblossomI can't remember having more fun than spending a night at the Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale, FL.

We've been there before…but this was my  first time on stage.   The Orange Blossom Opry Band is about as good as it gets and Suzanne Morgan, lead singer and general manager runs it well.   She is letting me come back to the stage tomorrow, February 11th…how about that.   It will be a great show, so come on out if you can.



Registration is Open! Workshop with the McMurray Art League

MAL-logo-color (1)I'm looking forward to teaching another workshop for the McMurray Art League this May.  This workshop will focus on taking watercolor beyond the boundaries of conventional techniques and substrates, and you can find a full description of the workshop here.  The class will be offered two consecutive Wednesdays, May 4 and May 11.  You can register for one or both classes.  This workshop is structured so that you will not be at a disadvantage if you are only able to attend one day.  Past participants are encouraged to attend as well.    Registration is taking directly through the McMurray Art League and can be done here.  If you are registering for both dates, please note that they require you to register separately for each day.   I hope to see you in May!
