August Advanced workshop

Not only did the five artists in the advanced workshop learn more techniques than was possible to try in 10 hours, they began to feel what was right for them and make encaustic fit into their own style.

We added some male energy to this class with the addition of Judson, a sculptor from Australia who has an exhibit of his work, along with his painter, wife, Cate at a local gallery.

Thursday, Donna invited all of us to her sweet home, still under construction, but already comfortable, for a glass of bubbly and delicious guacamole.

Judith is continuing the friendly connections made in the class by inviting all to dinner at her house next week. I love living in San Miguel and all the opportunities to meet other artists and make new friends.

I'm impressed!

These photos are from the intro workshop, August 16 & 17. Most of these artists are coming back for the advanced techniques class this week. Can they get better than this?

August 16 & 17 workshop

We just finished an introductory workshop that was fun for everyone. I really enjoyed meeting and working with five artists that I hadn't met before. It was such a compatible group that we are planning on getting together for dinner. Judith invited us to her home as soon as schedules clear. And four of these wonderful artists signed up for the advanced workshop August 26 & 27.

August workshop

I am planning an introductory workshop Monday and Tuesday, August 16 & 17. Space is available so let me know through my website if you are interested.

I had private students last week. They got my full attention. It was fun.
Marilyn, at the beautiful Pergola gallery picked up some of my paintings for a group show and told me that the color red gets a lot of attention in the gallery. Great! I love red...
