Workshop Fun!

Yesterday I held a beginner's workshop in my home for 3 of my friends...well, one was a true beginner, the other two have had a little experience. It was sort of an experiment for me in how well I like teaching. I think I like it. Seeing others get inspired about painting is such a thrill. Getting over the fear of trying it is the biggest hurdle. After that you just let go and let it happen. We had a lot of fun and I hope they learned something. I do every time I paint one. Let me know if you'd like to try it. I may plan another one soon. Here's some photo's and the painting that I did as the demo.

Carole Foret Style!

Well, whatdya think? Wow, I'm so
excited with some new techniques Carole Foret taught me last night at her "9 to 5er" workshop. I'm going to be off on a whole new painting journey now. I'm running late for work, have to go by the cleaners and the bank and get to work by 8:00...meeting at 9...yep, nine to fiver alright! Gotta go but I just couldn't wait to show off my new painting.
So much fun! Thanks so much Carole for a great night meeting some of your students and learning how you do it all! I loved it!

Upper Elk River Trip

Nothing like a Kayak trip down the upper Elk River on an early winter afternoon. I snapped the photo that this painting was painted from just before Bill flipped over and froze himself in the chilly waters. Ohhhh, that water was cold...bless his heart. I may do a little tweaking on this one but it's 24" x 36" oil on canvas. Let me know what you think!
