I’ll be exhibiting my art once again this August at Garden Woodand Gardens! Together with Caryl Joy Young and Shirley Anderson, aka The Monday Studio, we’ll present our best and brightest to the Gardens’ visitors. I hope you’ll plan a trip to Hot Springs and Garvan Woodland Gardens this August to see our exhibit!

Two New Paintings

After several months recuperating from surgery, I am now back in my studio and painting again!! I’ve completed two very different paintings recently. One is a street scene from Montreal. The other is a floral in anticipation of my August exhibit at Garvan Woodlands Garden, a botanical garden in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I’ll be doing a few more florals this month and next, but I cannot ever be far away from my architectural paintings. Go to My Art is see the particulars of these two paintings.

Empty Bowls Event This Friday

This weekend The Arkansas Food Bank willl host Empty Bowls, their annual fund raising event to help feed the hungry in our region. It’s such a worthwhile organization, and one I have lent my support to for many years. This year my offering for the art auction is a watercolor painting entitled Pick Me! The gala is a sold out event at the Robinson Center in Little Rock. If you are attending the event, look for this springtime depiction of tulips from Hot Spring’s own Garvan Woodlands Gardens — and say hello!

December Exhibit

The Monday Studio artists, Caryl Joy Young, Shirley Anderson and I (center) have packed up and taken our art to the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, 601 Main Street, Little Rock, for our exhibition during the play run of “Gift of the Magi.” The “Santaland Diaries” will also be presented in The Rep Annex. I hope you’ll find time to come to The Rep during December to see one or both of these productions — and see our art.

Back from my fantastic cruise to Great Britain, Iceland, Greenland and Canada. One of the highlights of this trip was cruising Prince Christian Sound, Greenland. I wasn’t prepared to see the awesomeness of the glaciers and the huge icebergs (as tall as our ship!). One day I painted a small watercolor while sitting in the Observation Deck of our ship. This is the result:


I taught this subject in a class later in the day. Everyone was inspired by the scenery and did a great job of rendering these breathtaking wonders of nature.

Art Journaling

I’m really enjoying revisiting, and adding to, my artist journal of our recent teaching trip to the Amazon River. Photos are always good to have as a remembrance, but sketching the impressions of where I've been, when possible, is even better! It’s the best of all worlds -- combining drawing, painting and writing, to create something personal. The quick sketches are not great works of art but good practice and fun to do!
