Last Day of June

.. temperature yesterday 103, today 105...whew......I would gladly give up that for my  old California 'June gloom' any day....but for now,  I'm sure glad someone invented iced tea.!

 Here's some dates for upcoming teaching events ( there are several more in the works, so visit here frequently):

Oil painting class at Art School in Sandy Springs starts Monday, August 20. Note, the class this time is for more advanced students...should be fun...
2 Day oil painting workshop at John's Creek Art Center, Nov 7-8...(they'll be adding info to their website shortly).
Also expected early this fall season ... a plein air class and an evening class at Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art. Also, working on a 2 day workshop at Gadsden (AL) Museum of Art, so standby for word on that......
..upcoming..... week long plein air festivals in Cashiers NC and San Luis Obispo CA..

what's that old Irish saying.?......may the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back, may the temperature drop well below 100 as soon as possible!! (something like that).

Brumby Garden

Here's a plein air from this past week, painted at a location not far from Marietta Square. Big brushes, this time; since it was a 20x24 size. I've taken my plein air class here several times, but this time it was just me painting....along with swarms of univited mosquitoes...ouch.........I forgot that essential plein air supply item.....bugspray!
