Polar vortex

One of my "winter" paintings titled "Caribbean Queen"...this is what you do in Vermont when you can't go outside in the cold...but I guess most of the country is affected by the polar vortex!  So...you paint in a warm studio (finally! after my heating issues)...and think back on warmer times...

I'm going to announce a few workshops here for 2014...I will be teaching a 3 day floral workshop at the wonderful Landgrove Inn in June in their beautiful post and beam studio!  Plus I was invited to teach again at this year's Vermont Art Event in Colchester sponsored by H.K. Holbein in July.  Click the links for more information...hope you can paint with me at one or both events!

I looked back over my posts and double checked to see if I had not posted this feathered friend before...and I didn't find him...so here he is!  I had fun with a stack of 7"x7" paper and trying to capture different rooster portraits...

Happy New Year everyone!  It's been a while since posting last...but the holidays got in the way.  A new year, a clean slate...lots of resolutions to draw more, paint more, clean the studio, be organized etc..etc.. but I'll take it as it comes...do what I can and enjoy it all.
