Change is in the air

hello all

A big blogging THANKS to those who came out for my Lyon School Plein Air Spring painting workshop and paint out! I foresee that in the future my plein air workshops will become a holistic event of painting, music , food and health ! I was happy that my real food lunch served was as big a hit as my suggested color palette ! My next plein air event is planned for the 3rd weekend of october----I am available for private and group lessons throughout the year---give me a call--573-834-5064
As springtime grows all around us I have been out painting it----I participated in the Augusta Missouri 8th annual plein air event ----over 100 artists painted and sketched the lovely Missouri landscape and quaint town, and we then presented our completed fresh work in a show and sale on the final day.
I have just returned from a plein air workshop in Bennett Springs Missouri, taught by the talented young painter, Joshua Been , from Salida, Colorado. This workshop was hosted by Macreed's Gallery , Lebanon, Mo. I had a wonderful time working hard at gaining new insights into the nuances of impressionistic plein air and studio oils!
I highly recommend Josh as a knowledgable, energetic, and generous teacher.
