Welcome to my website in the time of social distancing.

The advance to Normal in Washington has stalled. We have held a sucessful indoor Drawing Retreat with 5,  a one day Boat Drawing  out-of-doors and the  Green Problem is this week.  Sunshine may be outdoors or it may be my first ZOOM class. Stay tuned.

We are also starting a new interactive one-on-one class which we will set up tailor-made to fit you and your painting and media skills. See the new listing in Classes (still working on these).

In the meantime, I recommend using the Technique Corner for inspiration.  A lot of posts are demanding lessons. Others are more casual. Choose a year, say 2011 and try one. Or two.

You may also sign up for an on-line class. The first two are 10 exercises each. Do-able.   I may get some others I’ve been meaning to write posted during this enforced slowing down (haven’t managed yet as the garden has been calling my name). If you have been painting a while you might be challenged by INSPIRATION OF THE MASTERS.

I hope you can find something with which you can connect and the site helps you deal with our upended lives. You will be learning and growing while painting.

Feel free to email. Happy  painting. I hope to see you in a class one day.


Stay well.
