Door County Update

Well, this post was attempted while I was still in Door County WI but for some reason mobile blogging was not working and my image would not appear..?. So this piece shown was one of my favorites that I painted while there and is rumored to have caused a little argument over who purchased it first when the doors first opened. What a compliment! I painted this in a ditch on the side of a very busy road while having to hold onto my straw hat and this canvas everytime a large truck sped by. Fun.

I owe the crew at the Penninsula school in Fish Creek a HUGE THANK YOU!! They did everything possible so that all the invited artist could focus on painting all while making you feel welcome and appreciated. I feel like I made sixty new friends in a week and hope to be invited back so I can do it all over again. Thank you!

Apostles of the Sun

 I just finished my first Wisconsin workshop at Chicken Coup Studio out in Reedsburg. I will post more about it as I get ahold of some of the students photos they took. A HUGE thank you to everyone who made it possible and such a great time, especially Kyle Martin (pictured above next to me) I will be back!

The Dance

Oh boy... This week I am off to the land of cheese to spread my madness in a workshop at Reedsburg WI and the next week up to Door County WI to participate in Door County Plein Air. Busy Busy. I will try to post from the Plein air event and have some class images on my class blog. (see last post for link and save in your bookmarks) While I'm gone I will be the featured artist at Camden Falls Gallery. This piece above "The Dance" 30x30 is one of my favorite new pieces that I just delivered (this photo is not doing it any justice)

I just returned from a day trip down to Provenctown MA ( 9hour round trip ) to deliver a big handfull off new work to Egeli Gallery. This one shown above is one of my favorites, "Salty" 8x10". I thought for a change I would show it framed. It's another step (I think) in the direction I feel myself gravitating to. If you have a second, let me know what you think._____________________ I would also like to announce the "Class Blog" . This blog is a simple way for me to provide students with notes and hopefully some demos in the posts to come._______________________ About two weeks away from Door County Plein Air now and my workshop at the Chicken Coup Studio in Madison Wisconsin (I think it's Madison) either way there are still 3 spots open. Contact me if your interested. Happy Painting!
