At Attention

sold. (6x6in.)

I am home from my San Antonio workshop and slowly catching up with things here. It took me a couple of days to recover emotionally. These kiddos (to the right) may not look rowdy, but they definitely kept me on my toes. The great food and wine helped keep my strength up, but by the end I was a puddle on the floor. I'm hoping they didn't notice. Oh shoot, did I just admit that?!

Here are a couple of my demos from the class, and a couple of partial demos too. I was especially happy with the bacon, and plan to paint it again. Not the actual bacon - I ate that.
I'll post the group photo soon. Meanwhile, I need to let you know that I'll be heading to Germany at the end of the week, and we'll be there a month! I'm hoping to get some new reference photos, and maybe paint some of them too.

Hi Carol -
I'd love to take a workshop from you - it looks like so much fun! Please come to Nashville some time - we have a lot of teaching artists come thru.

Question: what are those cardboard cubby set up at each artist's station? Were they jerry-rigged or are they something one can buy/make?

Signed, An admiring fan

Thanks, Dalla! Those are just simple cardboard boxes. The place I teach in San Antonio thought it would be nice for everyone to have one to control the light better, or set their still life on top of. They were quite handy!

germany? yaaaayyy!! you're coming over to give a workshop in say, southern bavaria? real close to munich? maybe one just for me? :-) just kidding...while that would be absolutely fabulous, i appreciate that you probably just want to chill :-)
enjoy your stay, hope you get some great photos to work from!

Hi Sigrid! Unfortunately this is just a family trip. No workshops. : (
