The Watercolor Techniques series of classes at the Wilds Art Center in Loveland, Colorado begins January 16, 2008. The classes will be on 4 consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6-9 pm and I'll cover a variety of ways to approach a watercolor painting. One of the techniques I'll teach is my 'purple under painting' which I used in this painting, "Time Out!". You can achieve some impressive shadows by painting this way.

This 10" x 8" oil, "Miravalle" is the view from my neighborhood on a snowy day. I would like to wish everyone out there a peaceful Holiday season and may you all be content even if you didn't get everything done. Does it really matter anyway?

"Rocky Mountain Panoramic" is an oil painting that was accepted into the 2008 Western Spirit Art Show and Sale. The view is from the Beaver Meadows entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. I had to get there by 6 AM to capture the pinks on the peaks.

I have had 3 paintings accepted into the Western Spirit Art Show in Cheyenne, Wyoming for March 2008. "Flathead Lake" (24" x 18"pastel) will be in the show. I love this show-the opening is lots of fun, they provide great food and display impressive artwork. Details to follow on those dates & times. (Something to look forward to!)
