Workshops
Page Under Construction
(Further details about workshops and demonstrations coming soon! Please send inquires through the contact page.)
All the  techniques I teach can be used with both realistic and abstract subject matter. I will do several demonstrations, talk about
the processes and products,and  offer individual attention. Each session ends with a critique  of work done during class, offering
support and suggestions for finishing work begun in the work shop. I expect to complete at least one painting per day.
All images below were done as demonstrations. More demonstration paintings are scattered through out this website.
