Since I love the color pink, I just had to paint the pink trees at McKinley Park before they changed color this spring.

Outdoor Still Life

A recent still life painting set up right outside the studio door.  I am really enjoying using the outdoor lighting situation for still life set ups.  I have to work very quickly and get as much done as possible before the light changes and the sun roasts me!  I finished this one up inside the studio..

3 hour conte study

3 hour head study today during our long pose session at Patris Studio and Art Gallery. We had a full house of artist friends working from the model today.  A fun art day. 
I'll be teaching a portrait class at the Crocker Art Museum starting Wednesday.  There's still time to sign up! We'll be looking at the master drawings from the Crocker collection and then working in the studio from a live model.  Love, love, love this Crocker class!!
