Workshop and Monthly Demo/Class Announcement

Family Day 14x10

Every Second Sunday of the month Ill be hosting a drop in, plain air painting demo/class. I will post the location here and on my Class blog a few days ahead of time to give you a heads up. The price for this demo/class will be $25. The demo will be approximately 2 hours and will be followed by questions and conversation about your work or painting in general. Please, bring a chair and work to discuss.

Next year, 2016! I will be hosting three, two day long, workshops. The workshops will be focusing on paint handling, composition/abstract language. (Dates to be determined, A spring, Summer and Fall Class) These will not be run thru a workshop program company, The cost will be affordable and leave room financially for you to enjoy the area(maybe an upgraded hotel room.?.)  and bring fresh brushes :) More info to come.
 Please feel free to contact me if you'd like more info and have a window of time that would be best for you. If enough people like a certain window of dates, I can set the date there. Easy Breezy

The painting above "Family Day" 14x10" shows a clear pattern of light and dark as the frame of its composition. This is the composition you might see across the room. Upon closer inspection you will see highlights or more intense colors to lead you thru the painting in a different pattern. Finally, slight variations in the shadows help entertain your eye along the dark pattern while viewing up close.  Notice how many ways your eye can travel thru this painting.  I picked this painting as an example for that exact reason. They don't always turn out with strong compositions but a good dark/light pattern gives you a great chance at  it.

 Thanks for stopping by

Here is a recent nocturne piece ( "Summer Night" 12x16")  from here in Rockland ME. The colorfully lit building in the painting is Cafe Miranda. I highly recommend looking them up when you come visit Rockland.

Special Delivery

 I am very excited to announce a new gallery relationship with The Landing Gallery right here in Rockland Maine !
 If I wasn't delivering this large 4x5 ft painting ("Five Seasons a Year" 48x60" ) I could have just walked there.

Two Quote Tuesday.

Today's quotes are about love. I believe without love all other topics lose meaning.

“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.”
