In this workshop we will be focusing on creating a sense of space, depth and mood in painting, whatever one’s choice of style or expression.  We will be doing this by delving into aerial perspective, studying what happens to color at different angles and as it recedes into the distance as well as by observing and painting objects in their relationship to each other.  We will be using limited color palettes for mixing every conceivable color.  We will be working from a studio space at the top of a hill with great views down to Orange Lake as well as, upon group request, in the charming century town of McIntosh, Florida itself.   Space is limited and the workshop is filling, so if you are interested, please contact us or email or

Kathie and I have taught and painted together for 11 years.  We have completely different styles in painting but work from the same principles of art.  We find that in teaching together we are able to give expanded perspectives to our workshop participants which they have find freeing and helpful.  Our workshops are not geared towards producing a particular style or product. Our goal is to add new tools to the box of understanding and skills of each of our workshop participants.   We celebrate the flow of individual expression and try our best to facilitate it, knowing that diversity creates a rich and delightful garden of art.
