What Fun!

 Friday evening I returned from a 3 day figure/portrait workshop in Vermont.  I learned a lot including using an alla prima approach which I had only used in my plein air landscape painting and I met some nice new people from as far away as I am fueled to paint so keep your eyes open for some more portrait and figure work!  This is a study I did on the 2nd day of 'Lara'.

Thank You!

Last Saturday I participated in the Friends for Peace Wet Paint Auction...the conditions were a bit tricky with the rain and mist considering I worked in pastel!  Although I wimped out and painted from my car with the luxuries of a heated seat, music, food and warmth, it was a bit squishy and I wasn't able to stand back and view my work as it progressed.  Above is a picture of what I came up with...thank you to person who not only invested in my work, but also donated to a great cause!!
