"Apple Boats" & workshop photos - SOLD


Click Here to Bid

We finished up the workshop here today in Louisiana. I usually only post photos of my kids working so I decided to post a couple of happy shots (they'll tell you I threatened them to smile "or else" but don't beleive a word they say). Debbie's glasses broke so she used an earring to weigh one side down ... "it's not a fashion statement" ...

Below are a couple more demos. One of my kids, Jerry, brought in this beautifully wrapped gift specifically for me to paint. It was a real challenge, but my favorite from the week.

At one point Anne grabbed my camera and insisted on a photo of me making my rounds, so here I am helping Martha with her 10-minute apples.
And here's my entire group of kids from this week. Can you tell it was cold? I suppose I can forgive them for all their whining and complaining since they took me out to dinner and generally treated me nice ... and of course there was wine. But really, they became like family and I was sad to see them go. Thanks ya'll!!

The color on "Apple Boats" is especially fine, and your workshops sound like great fun.

So fun! It was really an awesome week! I couldn't have had more fun or learned so much from anyone else I am sure of it! Thanks for your patience and generous spirit. I loved your work before I met you, and I love it even more now! I can now say that I am inspired to paint still life!

Wow! Gorgeous demos. Love the present painting especially. It was kind re-gifted in way. Beautiful. ;)
