One great Workshop!

If this workshop is any indication of how much fun we will have this summer, we are in for a great time! I had a tremendous turnout for my colored pencil workshop, and it was such pleasure to work with a talented group of artists who are so serious about learning something new. Thank you all!

Studio Buddies

These are my studio buddies. Baron isn't much of an art critic but he is a great companion. His mother was a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and we think his father was a Rottweiler, he has the markings and the big head. And yes, he is big, 103 pounds!

The latest addition to the studio.... meet Chester! He is finally getting used to the house after living under my bed and in the bedroom window for the first week. Baron and Chester are no BFF's yet but there is something to be said for tolerance. 

And finally Tigger, who at the age of 20 is still very active and now that he has found a new buddy, even more so. He is a little on the shy side and it's hard to get a good picture of him.

Linda Hardy Workshop II

Linda Hardy's "Painting with a Dry Medium" is my second work shop with this Texas artist and I can highly recommend it! Linda is a master of her chosen medium, the colored pencil. She is also a wonderfully warm human being, loves to laugh and absolutely laid back. Her work is unique in the way she handles light and shadows. I am fascinated with her attention to the slightest detail found in her work.

These are my peppers, the result of the two day work shop. They are not finished, lacking shadows and background. I will keep working ....
