Old Familiar Scene

I've painted this scene several times as a student. Just recently went back and saw it from a new perspective.

Online Class

I'm really enjoying the online class with Deborah Paris. She's giving some useful information, and some wonderful ideas to try to get us out of our comfort zone. And, I don't have to go out in 5 degree weather to "go" to class.

These are 3 underpaintings that I've done so far to prepare for future instructions when the glazing process starts. I'm so glad that you never "arrive" as an artist. There is always more to learn. Enough to keep a person engaged and trying new techniques for the rest of their lives.

Beginning the New Year

Just beginning a 4 week workshop online with Deborah Paris, studying the techniques of the tonalist and luminest painters of the late 19th century. Deborah is a master of this style of painting, and I believe I'll learn some valuable insight into this fascinating way of painting.
