I don't do this very often but we are seeking everyone's help to spread the word! For more information visit the Living with Wolves website, or their FB page (this auction going live there on 31st August).

My summer

Hi guys, I am sorry to say that I have not been able to join you in the last workshop, been so busy with so many things and am going on a week holiday at end of this month to the mainland to do some golfing!  I have never ever done that before so I hope the weather will be good for us girlfriends.  This is our way to keep healthy!

I will surely join you in a workshop next month.

Keep well and happy my artist friends.:)

HI EVERYBODY!! I found extremely interesting and challenging, RICHARD ROBINSON'S "Beautiful Grays" YOUTUBE video, and the notes on MASTERING COLOUR. RICHARD'S view on colour is very lively and I am trying to get the knack of it.... which is indeed a challenge!

I would appreciate all your critiques on light effect, colour harmony, greys... and of course, your first feeling evoked by my painting of my son SPARKLING SANTIAGO. It is a live portrait done in 45'...

Still Life Workshop

I took a workshop with Kelli Folsom yesterday.  I love her loose painterly style and definitely want to paint more loose.  Workshops are always good, as they force you to see things differently and pull you out of your comfort zone.  I strongly recommend taking workshops and diving in.  (The painting is not complete and has some artistic no-no's but I…
