It’s time to sign up and take your art to the next level!

Sign up and learn more about my upcoming workshops
I am teaching a spring plain pastel workshop based out of my studio in Texas April 25-28.  I am also offering pastel, oil, and painting sampler classes at Ghost Ranch, in northern New Mexico this summer.

Completing an art workshop is a great way to do more art, develop a consistent practice, and grow your art community.  I would love to paint with you and help you become the artist you want to be!

Sunset 5:58 White Rock Lake

8″x10″ oil in panel

The sunrises and sunsets have been breathtaking this week…until I set up to paint it.  The sunset was quiet, totally unremarkable.

The trees were spaced in a way that was too even to make an interesting composition, so I pruned some out of my picture!

Lovely on a Vine

If you are so inclined him a little Guy Clark as you look at this one…

That’s true love and homegrown tomatoes” -Guy Clark

Fiery Sunset, Imagined

8″x10″ mixed media on paper

I have a very talented artist friend, named Helen, who has generously opened her studio and allowed me to explore acrylic abstracts and collage.  Working under her guidance has been fantastic because she is a wealth of knowledge of materials, technique, and design, AND she lets me play with all her cool stuff without my having to make a huge investment in a new medium.  

I started on a large sheet of paper and just played.

Then I cropped out a part I really liked.

It was really fun!  It was supposed to be an abstract, but an abstracted landscape magically appeared.
