Birch Tree Demo

Tonight I was showing the students how to paint some more snow. Thought they would like to learn how to paint some birch trees. Also taught them how to paint them with a palette knife. I will not be responsible if it snows this weekend.

Tonight's Demo

Tonight I showed the beginning students how to do a snow scene and how to use the white of the paper. They did a good job and had a good time. Next week I will show them how to paint birch trees.

Leaf Demo

This is the painting that I did for a demo for class. It is a 9 x 12. This is the first time that this class did some negative painting. They had alot of fun and realized it is a bit harder to do than it looks.
I will be giving a demo on leaves like these at the Chesterton Art Center on Nov. 22 from 10-3. There is a limited amount of space in this class so hurry and sign up soon.

Demo at Chesterton

Saturday was an art day in Chesterton, Indiana. There were artists at various locations in town and many were doing demonstrations of their craft. I was at the Chesterton Art Gallery and I gave this demo. I had less than an hour to get it completed. Since it was fall and I was in "Dunes" country, that is why I chose this subject.

When I got home I spent a little time to add a few more brush strokes...

Here's another painting for my show at Scarborough Faire Restaurant in Schererville.. Just one more fall one to paint.
Today I received my prints that I ordered of my glass paintings. I decided to get two of them made into Gicles. Now I can sell them more reasonably.

Fall is Here!!

I didn't realize that I didn't post in a long time. A lot has been happening. I did finish a very complicated painting with books in it. You will have to wait to see that one. I also taught a workshop at the Chesterton Art Center. It was a full class and they all worked so hard. I have pictures to prove it.
Today I hung a new fall show at Scarborough Faire Restaurant in Schererville, Indiana. Hope you go to see it. Now to do just a few more paintings for it. Then it will be time to do a new winter show.
Time to go and clean out my palette and to clean up the studio for classes tomorrow.
Take it easel!!
