Welcome back! I hope you had lots of time this summer for relaxation and watercoloring and that you're ready to achieve new goals in painting. Once again I'm offering classes and workshops this fall to help you create more, paint larger, and work looser.

My classes at the Ridgewood Art Institute will resume on Wednesday, September 7th and Thursday, September 8th at their usual times. Tuition will be $120 per month or $35 per class. I'll be having a portrait model on September 8th & 15th and every other week thereafter.

I'm hosting two outdoor workshops this fall. The first one is an all-day Watercolor Seascapes Workshop at Sandy Hook Beach, NJ that will be held on Friday, September 30th from 9 am - 4 pm. My Autumn Colors in Watercolor Workshop at Ringwood Manor State Park in Northern NJ will be held on Friday, October 14th from 8 am - 12 pm. All levels of ability are welcome to attend. Visit my "Classes" page for more information and to enroll. Or click here to download an application form.

In July, I was once again pleased to be invited to a week-long paint-out with The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport. Pictured here, "Schooner and Cat Boat in Mystic" is one of several paintings I did during the week. The exhibition continues through September 25th. The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport is located at 47 Greenmanville Avenue, Mystic, Connecticut.

I am also honored that my watercolor "Old Harbour, Cloanamore County, Ireland," was awarded "The Howard Slater Memorial Award" in the 35th Annual Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors at View Arts in Old Forge, NY. This prestigious exhibition which continues through October 9th features work from some of the nation's top watercolor artists. If you are planning a trip or will be in the area, I hope you'll be able to check out both exhibitions.

Looking forward to seeing you in class!
