Dedication

The dates are set! My workshop and classes thru Boothbay Regional Art Foundation, here they are in their words. See their website HERE for more info or email me (found in my profile on the blog) JUNE 15 and 16... Dan Corey will be giving a Plein-air Painting Workshop. Hours would be 9 am to 3pm with a lunch break, and the price would be $150 for two days and if someone wants just one day, $100. Dan will also be conducting Beginning/intermediate Plein Air Painting classes on Monday mornings starting  on June 11--9am to 12 noon for $35. I am also super excited to announce my Workshop in the far away land of Wisconsin! This will be hosted by the "Chicken Coup" a you guessed it, old converted chicken coup, that is now a gallery/workshop space. The Chicken Coup is owned by my good friend (and excellent painter) Kyle Martin. The dates are July 19&20th. Yup, right before Door County Plein Air and about 3-4 hours drive away in Madison WI. The prices and one or two day option will be the same as above. Please email me (again, email can be found by viewing my profile here on the Blog. Or just comment. I would love to hear interests or concerns. Both workshops will have demos and assignments to help you see the information that's available to you in Plein air/from life and the decision process in putting it to use. Hope to see you there. The above piece "Dedication" 36x48" is a recent studio piece. I'm not sure where it's going yet, email if you have interest. A note of interest. There is over a large 5oz tube of white mixed into that sky. Many paint tubes gave there life for this one.

Disappointing that I can't sign up for any of your courses.
The painting is a fine example of realising the effects of light. The gradated sky and beautiful rich shadows create a wonderful balance of values and the whole thing must be awesome at the size you have made it. Dan at his best.

Hey Mick, I would love to have you in a class! Too bad.. Thank you for the thought though! Thank you for taking the time to comment. It really makes the blogging much more fun when there is some sort of dialog. I guess I'm gonna have to post some discussion points soon if I want more..?.

"Karin and Tom" thank you! :))

Hey Matt, thanks alot!! The real hard part for me (besides the painting it part) is committing that much paint to one image. That stuff ain't free..
