My Studio

I put a few pictures here to show some of the happenings that go on in the studio.  🌻

Sandburg Painting Class

I taught my Sandburg kids how to mix color since we will be painting a lot more often.   They were pretty crazy today so I will have to figure out some way to keep the classroom flowing more nicely.

Summer’s End Painting

This is my end of the summer painting.  Behold, a watermelown!  🍉  I love to engage my community especially through public art.  

Studio Class – Bob Ross Mountain

I taught my student last night how to paint mountains in the great Bob Ross’ style.  We have learned techniques such as “happy clouds” and to “beat the devil out” of brushes.  On a serious note though his brush loading, pallet knife, and blending techniques are pretty ace.

Fundamentals of Art at the Mira Mesa Library

I love seeing variety in art.  This is from my fundamentals art class at the Mira Mesa Library where I get to see some new and familiar faces from my community. 🌻

Birthday Paint Party at the Park

I had a pleasant time instructing Elena’s group of ladies for her birthday at the park.  They all did well in creating their sunrise paintings and I love seeing the different ways the same painting is interpreted by different painters. ☀️  

Painting at the Park – Summer

I had a nice time painting with this group at the park.  It was really hot, but the canopies helped a lot.  I enjoy how we can all paint the same thing and they all come out distinctly different.  There’s a lot of feeling in some pieces and others might have more technical mastery.  Anyway Read more about Painting at the Park – Summer[…]

Paint Night – Summer

  I painted with Liz and company and they were a very lovely group.  They had a ladies painting night while the children had a play date and entertained themselves.  We painted a sunset since summer is coming to an end or is it a sunrise?  It’s hard to tell since it’s a picture, but Read more about Paint Night – Summer[…]
