Live Wedding Painting

I don't do a lot of 20-30 minute paintings, so when I was asked to paint a friend's wedding from life, it was a mixture of excitement and trepidation, but nonetheless I welcomed the challenge.  I was happy with the results.

Portrait Workshop

I'll be teaching a workshop in August titled, "The Portrait Sketch."  It will be intended for all levels, for even though the workshop will address some intermediate and advanced topics, we will be focusing on the fundamentals of learning to see and understand the craft of drawing and painting.  Participants who don't feel comfortable working with a full-color palette of oil paints can either draw in graphite or paint in grisaille (black and white).

Gallery Night

Twice per year the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMOCA) hosts Gallery Night, an event where studios, galleries, and many businesses hang art, put out food, and open their doors to an enthusiastic public.  Being in the center of the arts district in Madison, Winnebago Studios and Atwood Atelier get a lot of traffic.  Here are some pics from last Friday.
