Juried into 2010 Diamond Exhibit

Today I learned that two of my paintings, Mickey's Bar-B-Que (yes, the place on Park Avenue just north of town) and Taking a Break, were juried into the 2010 Diamond National Exhibit. This exhibit is sponsored by the Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs, and draws art in all mediums from around the region. Drop by the Fine Arts Center during August to enjoy the exhibit.

3-Day Watercolor Workshop

I taught a 3-day Watercolor Workshop on July 12 - 14 in Hot Springs Village, AR, under the auspices of Brush Strokes Art Club. Twelve students were subjected to my approach to watercolor painting, including talks on design, perspective, symbols, landscape guidelines, what makes a good shape, color, etc. Somehow they all seemed to not only survive, but to prosper. Intrinsic to the workshop was a half-sheet, 2-hour demo each morning. I've posted here photos of the class and of the three demo paintings I completed. For more information on my watercolor workshops, including how to schedule one for your group, please visit my website workshops page.

Best of Show in Brush Strokes Exhibit

I'm pleased to report that my painting Gallery Walk won Best of Show at the Brush Strokes Garland County Library exhibit. Selma Blackburn was judge. The show is very nice and worth a look; stop by to see it during July and August.
