The painted floral requires a balance of spontaneity and accuracy, making flowers a perfect subject to practice adding energy to all of your paintings. Learn about choosing a subject, composition, values, color temperature, simplification, how to start and when to stop. I will start each day with a full demonstration painting, followed by one-on-one instruction.

This oil and acrylics class is open to beginners as well as experienced painters.

The Woman's Club of Fort Worth Painting Workshop - Group Photo

I had a great time making and discussing art - and the business of art - with this talented group of painters. It's not just about painting what you see, it's also about getting people to see what you paint.

Thanks to each of you at my The Woman's Club of Fort Worth workshop for your hard work and the great discussions.

The Woman's Club of Fort Worth Workshop - Demonstration Painting - Day One

Olmsted Plein Air Invitational - SkyView Atlanta Ferris Wheel

And now for something completely different ...

I decided to paint the SkyView Atlanta Ferris Wheel in Centennial Olympic Park for the 2019 Olmsted Plein Air Invitational.

A challenge to say the least - a nocturne with non-stop foot traffic and a constantly moving ellipse. It scared me, so I painted it.
