This past Friday I had the pleasure to work with a delightful group who attended my "Capture the Moment" painting workshop. The class took place at the Beach Art Center (BAC) in Indian Rocks Beach, FL. The center is spacious, bright and cheerfully decorated with member's colorful & skillfully done artworks. It was my pleasure to share my painting techniques with this enthusiastic group, who plunged into the day's exercises with gusto.

My art calendar is rapidly filling up. The Florida "season" is upon us kicking off with an opening of a new "Realism" group exhibition at the Woodfield Fine Art Gallery on Sat., Oct. 13 as part of the Second Saturday Artwalk in downtown St. Petersburg. I will be showing my latest piece, "The Visitors," a 30" x 40" oil painting as well as two other works. Hope you can stop by for an evening of art & wine!

Also coming up is a day-long workshop at the Indian Rocks Beach Art Center on Oct. 26th. Come join me for a day of "mixing it up" literally in paint! I will explore mixing a wide range of colors using a limited palette. I will also demonstrate the use of various brushes and bold strokes to achieve greater spontaneity in your work. Whether painting in the studio or "en plein air," this workshop will help sharpen your skills!
