Upcoming Workshop in Benicia, Jan 11- 13th-
I'll be running a local 3-day workshop for interested folks on January 11, 12, 13th. That's a Thursday, Friday, Saturday schedule from 930-300. We'll be starting with the watercolor clock, as always, but we'll also jump specifically into the logistics of painting landscapes, thinking in values and glazes, and building notans. If we can make it work, we'll push into people attempting to paint some of their own photo work. It should be a blast!
Class will be held at the Arts Benicia classroom, and registration goes directly through them. The fee is 295$. Here's the link- https://artsbenicia.org/loosening-up-with-wet-into-wet-landscape2/
Reception for 48th Annual CWA show is Jan 6th-
This floral piece of mine is part of the 48th National CWA show. The reception is this coming Saturday, 1/6, at the Marin Society of Artists in San Rafael from 3:00- 5:00. I'll be going to the reception, which should be fun, but the show will go until the end of the month. The address is 1515 3rd St., San Rafael and the gallery is normally open Wedensday to Sunday, 12-4.
It's quite an honor to participate, and I hope some of you can make it! The Juror of Selection was Dean Mitchell, and the quality shows. I got to see some of the work when I dropped off my painting- there's some lovely portraiture and figure work, some floral work, some interesting abstract work, city scapes, etc etc. There's some good work in this show from nationally recognized artists. Of course, as always, if you're interested in my piece, it's for sale. ;)
Acceptance to the Yosemite Renaissance 33 Show-
This piece, "I Wonder Where It Goes", was accepted to the 33rd annual Yosemite Renaissance show. This show has its reception the evening of Friday, Feb 23, and will be exhibited at the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery until Sunday, May 6th. I got accepted last year as well, and the show is honestly really very interesting- full of lots of different media and interpretations! From there, it's a traveling exhibit through local central valley and mountain exhibits until the end of the year. It's super cool to get to participate. Having grown up in the foothills, going to Yosemite many many times as a kid (and adult), the park is very near and dear to my heart.
