Richard Stephens Workshop

I recently attended a 3-day workshop given by Richard Stephens and sponsored by Brush Strokes.  It was great, as usual.  Richard's demos were varied... a barn, an urban scene, and a portrait.  I followed his pattern, and produced three reasonable paintings (all shown here).  His portrait demo particularly captured my imagination, and motivated me to try a few additional portraits after the workshop.  But it's been a struggle... so, what's new?  Richard is a great teacher and painting coach, and I've learned an awful lot from him.

Holiday Exhibits

During December, besides my normal exhibits at Artists Workshop Gallery and ArtChurch, I have a painting Country Christmas (shown here) hanging in the Coronado Center in Hot Springs Village until mid-January, and two on display in the Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs Members Holiday Exhibit.  I hope you can stop by any or all of these venues and enjoy my artwork.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
