"Baby Blue"

“Baby Blue”
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
We did a paint along in the workshop today (see above demo)….and it seemed to bring out lots of smiles and happy paintings in everyone!  Second day in the workshop means everyone is more relaxed and so there is even more laughter and good art taking place.  I feel so lucky that I get to do this–there is so much work that goes into preparing for one, I almost forget how much joy there is when I actually get to the “doing of it” part!  From dear friends I have known for 30 years to new ones just met yesterday, it makes for a one of kind experience each and every time.  Hard to believe it will be over tomorrow!  Gotta get this group to stand still long enough to get a group shot…:))  Will post that tomorrow.
  • Just a reminder for those who live in Kentucky.  Harrodsburg Festival of Books and Arts is coming up the last Saturday in June.  I am the  featured main stage artist and will be speaking about my book and doing a demonstration painting from 4-5pm from the stage.  I would love to meet you! This should be a great festival so mark your calendars..:))
  • Remember, I am giving away my first copy of my book, “The Artist’s Toolbox” –to be eligible, leave a comment on my blog!
  • Leslie Saeta and I are finalizing plans for our upcoming workshop in California in September.  We anticipate this will fill quickly so let us know if you are interested and/or planning to attend.
  • If you are enjoying our Artists Helping Artists blog radio show–help us spread the word!  Please tell your artist friends they can call in or listen to previous recordings.  Also, if you have a blog, you can add the badge for the show to your page to let others know about it (and it gives one more reason for others to visit your blog, knowing you are posting cutting edge art info..:))(to add badge just the share button on the blog radio badge that is on the sidebar of my blog)  Thanks so much!
Happy Friday!

    I just left your workshop, feeling happy, fullfilled, a little more educated, and completely exhilerated. What a fabulous 3 days I spent with you, and the other artists in the group. There wasn’t a ‘bad apple’ in the bunch. Ann did a wonderful job in helping.

    Thanks so much. Maybe this time I’ll be lucky and win the ToolBox Book. You never know. Miracles do happen.

    Thanks again. It was great.ReplyCancel

    I love the freshness look of your paintings — and the beautiful color choices. Also your brushwork is wonderful! Looking forward to perhaps one day coming there to one of your workshops or owning a painting of yours! Keep up the great work! I love seeing the daily paintings!ReplyCancel

  • Portrait Painting By Johanna Spinks - June 12, 2010 - 12:12 pm

    your paintings are a breath of fresh air. I was in France painting myself last October. Your paintings really capture the feel of the place so well.ReplyCancel

    the pink is beautiful! I will have to play around with this color scheme. fyi – I have tried several times to share your radio feature to my blog. It doesn’t work – I will keep trying, but I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong.ReplyCancel

  • Marie Theron - June 12, 2010 - 10:16 am

    A lively bunch of daisies and the glass is beautiful. I like the speed and motion in your brushwork! I am sure it will be thrilling for the folks who can attend the demo!ReplyCancel

    I just found your radio show and wanted to say how much fun it is to listen to. I plan to listen every week.


  • Seth and Chelsea - June 12, 2010 - 5:30 am

    I have just found your blog and love your work and your blog! The workshop sounds like fun and hopefully I can make it to one sometime!ReplyCancel

  • artistecathy - June 12, 2010 - 5:12 am

    I love seeing your day to day paintings in my mailbox. The French studies are especially fun in that I’m an American living in France. Your work is very inspiring – and in spite of the fact that I’m a watercolorist, I am very interested in your new book, The Artist’s Toolbox, as I’m sure your tips will cross mediums. Thanks for being out there!ReplyCancel

  • Leslie Saeta - June 12, 2010 - 12:33 am

    Honestly, this is one of my favorites. Where is the price?ReplyCancel
