"Everything’s Rosie in Maysville, Kentucky"

20 x 24 oil on museum quality panel

It’s a wrap in Maysville!

Day 1Barbara Lowry brought Rosemary with Rosemary Brushes as a gift from her, Eddie and Phyllis.
Day 2–My painting for the day was “Rosie Days Ahead in France”
Day 3–I remember one of the many reasons Maysville, Kentucky is such a special  river town.
The great Rosemary Clooney is part of the heritage here.  Yep, George Clooney’s aunt and one of the great talents of our time is a big part of the history of the area.

So I guess it was only fitting (Mambo Italiano) that our first days work was of flowers….in where else, Italy!!

 Check out the bountiful harvest of flowers!! These girls (ladies) worked hard. I don’t think they left for lunch that day. They were working when I took off and rooted in front of their easels when I got back. I had to threaten them to come up and watch my demos:))
These gals love to paint!

The Artists!
Donna, Claudia, Rhojean, Barbara, Betsy, Linda, Vicki, Nancy, Judy, Brenda Sue (AKA BS), Teri, Cheryl, & Sandy
I would like to say there were 9, count ’em 9, repeat offenders in this class.  I am either doing something really right or something terribly wrong. 
 I have not decided which it is as it is dependent on how well behaved they are.  
I chose not to include the pic of one Rhojean actually sticking her tongue out at me.  
That’s what I’m workin’ with folks.  
I fear Eddie’s bad edditude is rubbing off on some of them….!!

Some rosie paintings from Day Two of the Maysville workshop:))



and painting the days away.

And there were not a dozen plus carmel apples rolled in nuts at the workshop.
Who started that rumor anyway????  (thanks Sandy!)

And thanks to Ohio River Valley Arts Guild for giving us a good home to paint in for a few days:))
Lots of great camaraderie with all the artists made for an awesome Maysville 2011 Workshop!

Only one more workshop before 2011 closes out—-Lexington, KY—ready or not, here I come!!!

P.S.  For those of you who are interested in some of the brushes, signing tools, etc that I use in my workshops–you can have a look by visiting my art supply store::))  Please ignore any suggested “cat” gifts that may appear there from time to time.  Eddie just loves him some good shopping… with my credit card!

    I wish so very much that I could’ve been there. Everyone looks so happy, cheerful, content, and following their bliss. It’s magic the way art and creativity can do that for the spirit and the heart. Your workshops bring out the best and happiness in people – just look at everyone’s faces, all smiling and glowing and having a brilliant time.

    As for the gorgeous painting of a sleepy Eddie, this is one of him at his most beautiful, I think. I can even hear him purring from here. I love it (and of course, I love Eddie!)

    Thanks for sharing a great day that the workshop obviously was. Maybe one day, i can persuade you to come over to this side of the Atlantic, once again.ReplyCancel

    Looks like so much fun! I can’t wait ’till the Atlanta workshop. Could we, please, paint Eddie? He is such a handsome cat and you do cats so well.ReplyCancel
