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!

Returning to the McMurray Art League in August 

Thanks to the McMurray Art League for inviting me to return on August 18 and 19 for another workshop.  The group was very enthused about "Watercolor...Beyond the Medium's Boundaries", so we're going to continue on this topic.  Details will soon be posted at the McMurray Art League's workshop page if you'd like to join in for this next session.

Saturday Afternoon Project 

Inspired by a recent outing where I found I was not equipped well to paint on location, I decided to see what I could do to improve my situation.  I made this from an old cigar box and a small photo tripod we had lying around in the garage.   I doubled up the bottom, put a fitting in to accept a threaded mount.   Then I modified the tripod to mount the box, added  a small cable to hold the lid at an appropriate angle for an easel, and I thought I might be on to something....
