Small Works Show at WREN Local Works

As usual, the Small Works opening reception at WREN in Bethlehem was AWESOME!  Not much elbow room, but tons of creative energy crackling.  Had the opportunity to talk with many of the artists and lots of interesting folks in general.  A great event.  If you missed it, make a point of making the next one.

Art Educator's Institute 2013

Had another great week at the NH Institute of Art, Art Educator's Institute.  Took a figure drawing class that was enlightening and inspiring.  Used an interesting technique of painting the figure using brayers and a monochromatic palette.

Challenging, with provocative results that I will attempt with my students.  Afternoon class was a digital painting course using photoshop.  Was a little frustrating for a photoshop dummy like myself, but I finally produced a piece that was fun and I certainly learned a lot that I can hopefully pass on to my students as well.  Hated for it to end, as always.  Now for some, hopefully, long productive days in my own studio.

New Work

I'm loving this new format.  There's something very aesthetically pleasing about painting a picture on these big canvas blocks.  Of course, I love the subject matter too.  Perfectly suited to these painting surfaces. So........a couple new ones.
