Provence Country Road

While in Provence this spring I took a lot of great photos of the area around the convent.  When I returned home I used several of them to create new works and to teach the process of painting to my adult students.  This is one of the finished pieces which is on ebay auction this week for you to bid on.  CLICK HERE to visit my auction ( around 25 pieces on auction this week )
or CLICK HERE to visit my blog where you can read about my life as an artist and perhaps purchase my new book on painting the landscape en plein air.

My TCC class project

For this project we all started out with the same photo of a lovely, costumed woman.  I demonstrate the process that we will all follow to complete the painting but allow each student to choose the model's surroundings and since I have a class full of animal lovers, they also chose an animal that would sit upon her lap.  This is turning out to be a lot of fun.  We are nearing completion.

Painting in the great outdoors in Oklahoma

We had a delightful plein air workshop at the RossMar Ranch this weekend.  I had 10 eager painters with me.  The weather held out for the whole day although it was a bit nippy in the morning.  Thanks to my layers of long underwear and multiple shirts, sweaters and jackets, I was prepared for what ever the day had to offer.  I demonstrated one oil sketch in the morning and one in the afternoon.  We will take both back into the studio this Thursday and will work with any students who want to complete their paintings.  ( Mine included as they are not quite ready for prime time :-)

Lots of paintings on Auction this Week, New ones added daily

Another week of new auctions on ebay.  I will be putting tons of paintings on auction this week, both large and very small ones.  This one is small, 8x8.  It was done as a demo in a workshop that I lead at the Tulsa Arts and Humanities Council a few months ago.
