ACRYLIC PAINTING IN PLEIN AIR
John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, North Carolina
Sunday, Oct 12 – Saturday, Oct 18, 2014
Would you like to spend a week in the mountains of North Carolina painting outdoors? There is still time to register for a plein air painting class I will be teaching at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina. Nature cooperating, I’m hoping for the peak colors of autumn with which we can grace our canvasses. In any case, the air is always fresh and fragrant with the scent of pine and mown hay and the birds will serenade us as we paint. Make new friends, learn new skills and enjoy a week of relaxation and creativity!
As for the class itself, we will revisit those basics of successful painting and learn to work with quickly changing light. We will experiment with limited palettes and learn about the nuances of acrylics while using different mediums. There will be plenty of time for individual and group discussions and, of course, for stories and laughter.
There are plenty of vistas at the Folk School and an abundance of subject matter for every taste and style of painting.
“ABOUT FACE: PORTRAITS WITH PRESENCE” Juried Portrait Show
The Thomas Center Galleries, Gainesville, Florida, until September 20, 2014
There is still time to catch the juried portrait show at the Thomas Center Galleries in Gainesville, Florida. The show presents over 100 works from both emerging and established artists. It was curated by Anne Gilroy who has done a fabulous job of selecting works of a wide variety of styles, creating a fascinating show. I am honored to have a portrait on display.
While I’ve enjoyed the summer with our spectacular, towering Florida clouds, I am looking forward to the cooler weather and more comfortable outdoor painting. By the way, it’s almost time to start thinking about those special holiday gifts, so if you are interested in commissioning a painting, do contact me.
