A Thank You for 2014

Teaching an impromptu lesson at a student's easel, in Goshen, New Jersey (on Cape May). This barn is the studio of Stan Sperlak at his Crow Creek Farm art school.


Thanks to all of my hosts, venue organizers, and especially all of the artists I met this year at workshops and demo events in Everett, WA, New Braunfels, TX, Ann Arbor, MI, Ponte Verde Beach, FL, Spokane, WA, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, Kemijärvi, Finland, Florham Park, NJ and Goshen/Cape May Courthouse, NJ.

In the next two years I look forward to scheduled and proposed workshops in France, Germany, Italy, Dakota Pastels in Washington; also the DC area in Virginia, New York City, Boston, Denver, southern California, South Carolina, Maine and I may be forgetting some.

iMovie Colors

This is my first effort with iMovie. I had lots of fun! The artworks are late 2014 works; the "paint on them is still wet."
