more workshops ahead
The workshop idea is taking off, and at this point, I have two more coming up--October 19-21 at Peninsula School of the Arts
in lovely Door County, WI, and one that is as yet unscheduled at the Dick Blick location in Wheaton, IL (near Chicago.) That one will probably be in July or August.
(Someone called the Dick Blick store to ask that I be contacted for this--if that was one of my blog readers, thanks! and could you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I am sure to schedule it when you can attend?)
The painting above is Sahara Wind
, 24"x26." Like a lot of my recent work, it comes out of my residency in Catalonia last fall. I was rather charmed by the fact that at times, a pinkish dust is deposited in the area where I was staying--carried on winds from the Sahara. I was reminded of that as I developed the pink/orange colors in this painting.
