Dune study and Workshop

Here is a small dune study done in preparation for a larger piece. It was Fall and the sun being lower in an all blue sky made for great shadows.

I have another two-day workshop scheduled for this summer in Michigan with the Glen Arbor Art Association. We'll start at the Thoresen Farm, part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Beautiful countryside, preserved historic farms, dunes and beaches. Lots of interesting subjects for plein air painting. For beginners and up.

Spring-break painting

Last week we spent spring-break with our kids at Disney World. A great getaway from the cold. I brought my paints along and had time for a couple of sketches at the Beach & Yacht Club.
