New Classes

Hello everyone,

In my recent flurry of activity, not only am I developing a new body of work, but I am also proposing a new class or two for the fall.

The first is a class where I teach the basics of painting with watercolors, and then I show how to add embroidery to the painting.  The second one is a faster class- a few hours- creating collages to make into "zines"- hand made pamphlets or booklets to share.

Cross your fingers that there is some interest from one of the schools I am sending the proposals to!

Here are a few pictures of the samples I have created to illustrate the watercolor/ stitching class.

Once again, thanks for following!

New water colors for sale!

I will be displaying my small daily paintings in my office soon, but thought I'd give my blog readers a sneak peak!

Each painting is 7x10" and is unframed. They are 100.00 and can be shipped.

I have been inspired by a farmers market theme at the moment. More to come...

Fabulous Opening!

What a wonderful night. Not only did the gallery really think about the best way to hang my piece, but I was able to meet, and thank, the juror- David Ross, the former director of the Whitney.
Many friends came too! RISD classmates, friends from Maine- I was thrilled!
The folks at the gallery encouraged me to apply again next year as well. Absolutely!

And as a funny aside- one of my favorite living artists- Mr. finch- a young British fiber artist- had a show across the street I was able to attend. Such a great night!
