This is one of the largest pieces I have painted. It takes up a lot of room in my small studio. I wanted to play with patterns in this one. This is the first painting in my new series "Striped Socks" I started with an underpainting or Grisaille in Burnt Umber and white. I put in the grey and blue wall as well at this point.Read More

The winter session is over, but not forgotten! My students were the most hard-working group...ever. I really pushed the class out of their comfort zone, but they rose to the occasion, and produced some amazing work. I think the greatest compliment an instructor can get is when a student wants to sign up for the next session :)Read More
