Westlake Demo

oil 8x8 inches Purchase info here. What a great time I had teaching a three day workshop for Westlake Village Art Guild recently! This is the demo I did on the last day. I'm happy with how it turned out, though the alizarin in the pomegranate and strawberry doesn't photograph well. Oh well, it's better in person and that's what counts. IN OTHER NEWS: I have a few openings in my February workshop, and one opening in my March workshop. I hold these in my large home studio building in Upland, CA. Email me for more info

oil 12 x 12 inches Click to purchase. The deep oranges with minty green in this piece seemed refreshing and unusual to me. I hope you like it. Today I'm driving north to Camarillo to teach a 3 day workshop for Westlake Village Art League. My car is packed to the hilt, and I'm really excited to share my love for still life painting with these folks. In my excitement, I hope I remember to take pictures I can post!

oil 10x8 inches Click to purchase. I painted this one after getting my turkey in the oven on Thanksgiving morning. I had lots of flowers leftover from an Advanced Workshop in November, so my granddaughter Emily and I had fun making arrangements. She made this one that became part of our centerpiece on Thanksgiving. IN OTHER NEWS: "PAINT THE LIVELY STILL LIFE" Workshops are coming up on February 10-11 and March 3-4. Location: my studio in Upland, CA. Email me for more information and to register.
