Second Place Award Audience Choice Award at DABL

Last week I participated in the second annual Dane Arts Buy Local (DABL), an event focused on connecting artists with the community and local businesses.  It was an honor to have been juried into the show, and even more so to have won second place among so many wonderful artists.  More information about the event can be found here.  Thanks to everyone who made it out, to Dane Arts, and all of the sponsors who made the event possible.

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).
