Hurry!!....class begins January 6th!!!

Hello all

A reminder to hurry and sign up for my Monday morning painting class, which starts January 6th, at The Art School at Sandy Springs.
During the holiday season one can get caught up in so many activities, and forget things;  and this class follows quite soon after Christmas, so plan ahead to sign up soon, so you dont miss out!

Click on the website, on the right side of the blog, for Art School at Sandy Springs to register.

 It runs for six Mondays, from 9:30am to 12:30pm.  This is a studio oil painting class, with an emphasis on landscape. We gear things toward advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced. We explore concepts that will lead you towards more professional results in your painting; concepts that are unique and not always covered in other classes you may take.  If youve taken the class before, Id be pleased to see you again; as we always explore new concepts and new subject matter.

See you there!

Happy Thanksgiving!

back in time

Above is a large commission piece (24x36) from about 2 years ago.  Just thought I would review it a bit.  As is often the case, a commission piece comes out a bit stiffer and more sharped edged than my typical work, since there are so many specific things the client desires to see referenced, and that starts to turn it more into an illustration versus a painting. My initial plein air sketch idea is below. Difference is distinct, wouldnt you agree?
