New Studio for the Visual Arts Floral Painting Workshop

I was invited to teach a three-day floral class at the New Studio for the Visual Arts in Jupiter, Florida, the week before I'd be participating in the 5th Annual Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival.

We had to hustle to get all the way from the Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational to Florida in just two days for this workshop, but it was well worth it. I was lucky yet again to work with a great group of artists.

On Thursday evening, I did a demonstration painting and gave an artist talk at the studio.

We painted outside on Friday, the last day, in order to give the artists more of a feel for painting outdoor flowers, even though we had to use cut flowers (the studio wasn't able to convince a local nursery to let such a large group of us paint on site).

We gathered at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum, where we worked in the shade with a lovely view. It was a great way to end the class. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures of the four demonstration paintings I did for this workshop - they all sold before I could get them photographed.
