Demo Final

I believe the demo is done...had a few tweeks to make now that I am home because it is going to possibly be used for a magazine cover out of Minneapolis....but I only had time to make a few corrections as I must begin getting ready to teach in Calgary, Alberta and get those demos ready...but thought you might like to see where I left it at for now.

Paul Jackson workshop

I finished teaching another workshop and was home for 2 days in time to meet Paul Jackson and his wife Marla here and they taught a 3 day workshop which I attended. It was alot of fun and being a student again was so different! ha! I enjoyed them so much and I believe everyone wants them to come back next year! Here is an article that was in our local paper!   and here is a picture of what he painted here in the class.

Stanley Maltzman

I have not had much time this summer to keep this up as I have been traveling so much. But I wanted to tell you about the highlight of my Bend, Oregon workshop! The other instructor was Stanley Maltzman and I believe his book is one of the first I purchased way back when. He is 89 and still travels and teaches and you would be amazed at his energy! He is delightful and charming and talented...what a combo!!! I think if you are a plein air artist and like pastels, you will enjoy his workshops tremendously! I was honored to be there with him and able to chat each morning for a few minutes during breakfast...he was a true inspiration!
