Summer newsletter

Hi there;
Just a few artsy happenings to tell you about.  I'm teaching two mini plein air oil painting classes in June.  They will be on June 9 (yes; this Thursday) and June 23 from 8:30 AM-noon.    I will help a small group of students through the sometimes challenging aspects of plein air at local parks in Loveland.  The cost is $30/each.   If you are interested, email  me.  These mini workshops are replacing my weekly oil painting classes until Fall. If you are interested in attending this Fall (most likely September) let me know as the class fills quickly.
My Wednesday watercolor class currently has one opening if anyone would like to paint with a really lovely group of artists.  We will meet 3 more times in June and possibly into July.


I am very pleased to announce my art was accepted into the upcoming shows:

"Off the Grid" (watercolor, above) was accepted into the Lincoln Gallery's Regional Show this year.  The opening coincides with Night on the Town this Friday.  This is a free, fun evening to see downtown Loveland come alive.

I had 5 paintings accepted into the Cultural Art Center of Estes Park's "National Treasures" show which celebrates 100 years of the National Park system.  Each of my accepted paintings represents a different National Park.  The shows runs the entire month of July in downtown Estes Park.
"Sail Away", a plein air from the Washington coast was accepted in the Plein Air Artists of Colorado National Show in September at the Mary Williams Fine Art Gallery in Boulder.  You can preview the show online.  I am once again honored to get into this prestigious show.
Save the date:  I am again participating in the Loveland Art Studio Tour  which is held October 8, 9, 15 & 16th.  This show gives you the opportunity to see where artists work.  Come and see my home studio west of Loveland.
'Opposites Attract' (plein air oil) will be in "National Treasures" in Estes Park in July.
I hope to see you at an upcoming show and/or class!  Happy summer to you.
