I am continuing to play with extremely thick oil paint, creating three-dimensional canvases that flow with light, energy and color. From capturing the gorgeous colors of autumn to the textures of birch and aspen trunks, to the massive sunflower fields in Provence and Tuscany, to the rocky, mountainous terrain of the Southwest, I can’t wait to share these new paintings with you!
I was honored this year when American Fine Art Gallery named me their featured artist for the Dallas Spring Gallery Walk and am excited to have a solo show at The Good Art Company Gallery this coming April in Fredericksburg, TX. Also, my pastel “A Pause in Time” won a special award at Southwest Pastel Society’s Juried Show this fall.
Additionally, we taught a new Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop in Paris, which turned out fabulous! Painting at the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and in Monet’s footsteps at Giverny were just a few of the highlights, not to mention sampling the fantastic art, food and wines that Paris is famous for.
For 2013, we are planning several Art Treks workshops including one in February during Carnivale in Venice, Italy, one in Greece to experience the beauty and history of Athens and the Greek Islands, and returning in September to Tuscany with the option to add another week in Cinque Terre and Lake Como for a two week Italian adventure.
