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.

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!

Tee Time

 

As with most artists, I'm influenced by my surroundings.  Here are two that I started last fall, but reflect what I'm up to these days when I'm not painting or picking.

Egret 

Taking a break from the snow, I'm taking inspiration from my new locale  I apologize if my timing stinks for those of you up North...but I just completed my first bird for the season. "Egret" is watercolor on Yupo paper, sized at 12"x9".

More Big Sky Inspiration

Skiing is a way of life there, so how could I resist trying to grab the action. The next two images are my attempt at capturing skiers knee deep in powder.
