I was able to combine some painting with my family vacation this summer. Here's a watercolor sketch I did while on location in Maine.

I hope you had a terrific summer and are easing into the fall routine. If your plans include getting back into a regular painting schedule, I'd like to invite you to attend one of my classes at the Ridgewood Art Institute. They will resume on Wednesday, September 3rd and Thursday, September 4th.

The "Barn" has been busy this summer making improvements to the building, which included the installation of an elevator lift! It should make using the second floor studios a whole lot easier for those who struggle with stairs.

I was able to combine some painting with my family vacation this summer. Here's a watercolor sketch I did while on location in Maine. Of course, it's fog - one of my favorite themes. If you were able to paint, I'd love to see what you've done! Bring them to class for a critique and I'll help you create a larger, more "finished" version.

Mark your calendar, I'm hosting an outdoor Fall Foliage Painting Workshop at Ringwood Manor on Friday, October 17th. Visit my class page for more information.

Happy watercoloring and I'm looking forward to seeing you in class!
