More art shows and classes!

Fall is a busy time for artists, with new exhibits and workshops every week. I just got back from Jerry's Artarama's annual "Art of the Carolinas" where I met up with friends for workshops and shopping.
Morgan Golladay, Rosemary Connolly, and me at the Art of the Carolinas trade show and expo.

I had a blast last weekend, exhibiting at the Unionville Art Gala with my besties Jeanne Kirby Bruneau and Yvonne Mucci. This annual event invites the regions best artists to show and sell their work, and I'm thrilled to have been asked back again!

I still have a couple of spaces left in my next studio workshop "adding figures to the landscape" on December 5th. Contact me to sign up! Also, I'm teaching watercolor painting at the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, PA, winter semester begins in January. Contact the Arts Center to sign up! See ya soon!

Acrylic Painting Demos and Lessons!

I often travel to art supply stores to conduct painting demos and lessons using Royal Talens fine artist materials. A couple of weeks ago I worked with their Amsterdam Acrylics in the Hands on Creativity expo at the Plaza Art store in Towson, Maryland. Several art supply companies participate in this annual event, where local artists can come in the store and learn about the latest products and try them out for themselves. 

My table is always busy at these events, with artists of all ages waiting to try out the paints and mediums.


 I barely had time to snap a selfie with my set up before my table was surrounded with artists!


The store was packed all weekend!

I always bring a few painting samples and subjects for artists to use as inspiration at these events, and pumpkins are a favorite with everyone in the Fall season.

This weekend I'll be at Jerry's Artarama's "Art of the Carolinas" in Raleigh, North Carolina. I hope to see you there!
