Drawing classes start tonight. We have room for a just a couple more students if you are interested. Each night we will focus on a different drawing skill, so if you cannot make it to all four, that is ok. And participants can show their work during our second annual "Chiaroscuro and Chocolates" open studio event (Nov. 21).
Tonight we will work on "proportion" and I will teach measuring techniques for working large to small and seeing accurate shapes while working from still life objects.
See the FB event for more info.
We are teaching again! A month long drawing study course. Join V....Vaughan and I at Joel's Coffee House on Monday nights for 2 hours of intensive drawing study. We will work in depth with perspective, values and line. Drawing skills are foundational to all art forms. If you can accurately depict what you see, adding color, sculpting form, and creating depth and dimension are easy.

I'm paired with Chef Daniel McAleese of Ten Oak. Yum. I can't wait to see what deliciousness has been inspired by my paintings at the gallery.
Abend Gallery had a packed house - a big accomplishment as it's a huge space - Thursday night for the American Impressionists Society. No awards for moi, but had wonderful feedback from other highly talented artists that lift my spirits. It has been fun exploring Denver and meeting other artists.
I've sort of equated Denver to Mecca - a pilgrimage for me to the land of so many of my favorite artists. It's very inspiring.
We toured the art museum (just missing Matisse whose show opens next weekend). But saw Daniel Sprick's amazing show.
I painted with E. Melinda Morrison and a group at a figure session in the most funky cafe I've seen. Shopped for a sketchbook (and other things I can't live without) at a fabulously well-stocked art store - Meininger's. Today is gallery hopping and then home to Austin where I hope to start the Art Students League of Austin. If we build it, they will come.
