Fall newsletter 2017

 I hope everyone had a wonderful summer!  I have a couple of shows & new classes coming up.
I will be starting my home studio classes in September.  On Wednesday mornings starting Sept 6th, I teach watercolor with drawing from 9-12.  Solvent free (using traditional oils)  oil painting starts  Sept 14 and meets  Thursdays from 9-12.   We cover techniques, materials, styles & experiment with a variety of subject matter.  Classes are $30.  I am also looking for students to occasionally 'drop in' when needed.   Email or call for more information. 970.613.1258.
Something new I'm offering: Wine Glass painting.  I taught to a sold out group at the new Sweetheart Winery this month and have another scheduled Sept 18.  The winery is a brand new treasure of Loveland you don't want to miss.  You need to register for this class through this link.
I am also offering private studio wine glass painting classes.  Gather 3-7 friends & you will receive 2 glasses & materials with instruction to paint.  I have several designs to choose from -or create your own.   $40 per person
I have a few  adult classes I'm offering through the Loveland Museum Gallery. I've been teaching there 14 years!
I have two upcoming National Shows I'm excited to be part of.  Join me at the upcoming receptions.
Save the dates!  I will open up my studio to the public Oct 14-15 & Oct 21-22 for the Loveland Art Studio Tour The opening at the Loveland Museum for the tour is Sept 28 from 5-7pm (free)  Hope to see you there!

I am proud to announce that "Joy Ride" (oil) was accepted in the 32nd Annual National Juried Fine Art & Photography Show and Sale in Louisville, Colorado.  I painted this horizontal original oil after plein air painting in Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado).  I had a perfect  Autumn day to paint outside.  Two riders on horseback literally rode through my scene and I knew I had to capture it in the studio.
