Workshop (Northern California)

This is a photo of one of the demonstrations I painted for attendees of my three-day workshop which concluded yesterday. It is an 11 x 14 called The Friday, Madeira, and Getaway. We painted at the Vallejo marina near Mare Island on the first day. Friday, we painted at two locations in Napa. On Saturday, the weather continued to be beautiful for our day at China Camp. I absolutely loved teaching this workshop and remember why when I was younger, my aspiration was to become a school teacher.

Gamble Garden

I painted "Sunday in the Garden" at Gamble Garden in Palo Alto. This is a non-profit horticultural foundation which is celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2010. What a beautiful place to paint.

Mission Fountain is a recently completed 16 x 20 painting. Often, you don't first notice shadows in a painting. They are best when subtle. However, well placed shadows can be some of the most intriguing elements to a painting.
