Just Looking


sold

Home again! I know you're all dying to hear about my workshop in Texas, but first for the painting above. It's another one from NYC. This is a scene from the Hell's Kitchen flea market. This guy was totally baffled by what I was doing, and I took advantage of it.

And now for TX. So, I took a TON of photos, because it's a really beautiful place that I was teaching. This first batch are from around the place, inside and out. The food was awesome!


This next batch includes a few of my demos, students on a break, perfect grays, heart-y leaves, and a few of our furry companions.


This last batch is student work, because I've had a lot of requests to show it. Some are finished and some are in progress.


And lastly, here are the people who made last week so special! Sure, they complained when I made them work hard (the stinkers!), but all-in-all, we had a total blast - lots of wine drinking and massive amounts of belly laughing. I hope to see you all again in a couple of years! : )

Another wonderful NY painting. You should consider painting another series for a show, just sayin. Love all of the students work too, they did an amazing job.

Wonderful post! Love your latest painting. The gesture and loose way you captured the lighting are lovely. I enjoyed the photos of your students and their work. I hope that you can do a workshop in Florida sometime! Looks like a lot of fun!

Looks like you guys had a blast! Do you ever invite men to your group? I don't live up your way, since my wife, son and I live in Kentucky. We used to live in Western Massachusetts and I was taking figure skating lessons over in Albany, NY at one point, but that's another story :)

Thanks, George! Guys are always invited - I have NO clue why there are so few who take my classes. I wish they would.

we bonded over a hotel room in Jacksonville……. and the class was a milestone for me, too ;)

As for George, we affectionately refer to the men as the 'token guys' but do join a class before she goes into retirement.
You will learn from a master teacher and you'll make great memories.
