Greetings  <<First Name>>,

Hope you're enjoying the summer. I've been busy since my last newsletter in the spring. Two paintings of mine are hanging in the Arizona Artists Guild Sate Wide show at West Valley Art Headquarters, which ends on June 21. I gathered with my print buddies for two excellent print making sessions at Carole Matthews Studio in Cave Creek. (see below) The painting above, Windowpane #22, was accepted into the 46th Annual Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition to be held at Center for the Arts Evergreen, 31880 Rocky Village Dr, Evergreen, Colorado, November 15 – December 24. I've added a new workshops to my list including Kanuga in the spring of 2021. Start making plans now If you would like to attend a seriously fun workshop in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, I'll be teaching intuitive painting with watercolor, gouache and ink.  2021 classes have not yet been added, but please take a look at Kanuga Watermedia Workshops.

Workshops

Freedom in Watermedia 

The Freedom in Watermedia Workshop is designed to teach all levels of students to paint intuitively, starting without preconceived notions or outcome. There will be no preliminary planning or drawing. Process will dictate direction as students use a variety of techniques to implement elements and principles of design. Instruction will start with random mark making and color application, working transparent to opaque creating a library of design elements using a variety of mark making tools, watercolor, gesso and acrylic. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between elements and principles. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is work which is compositionally pleasing and aligned with the artist's personal aesthetic.
