Painting lessons....

"I want to explore something different. I want to create. I need a little time... to nurture my soul. I really want to paint something for my child's room.... my sister.... my first art show....."
I hear so many good reasons for stepping out of the box. Call me if you are ready.
I teach adults on a very flexible basis. If you want some one-on-one time (here at my studio) with drawing or beginning acrylic painting... or if you want to paint on your own but need an occasional consultation, let me know. The times available are roughly 9 or 11am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays mornings. The cost is $35 an hour.
I will schedule the same one-hour time slot for you each week (which usually spills over a bit for catching up and sharing ideas). Then I send you on your way to make the world a more colorful place. :-)
Some students come every week. Some have come every other week. Some have scheduled consultations once every two months or so.
I am currently taking sign-ups starting mid October. Happy fall, everyone.

Does it really have to be so bold? Yes.

A series in progress.... The top image is how it starts. A color on the whole canvas. The dark punctuation for composition. Then colors added. The bottom photo is taken on my front porch.... paintings still need "thinking" and more details in the poppy centers, but the direction so far is comfortable. Maybe these will be fabric? wall paper? prints? We shall see. And yes, it does have to be bold... I don't think my brush knows another way :-).

Swasey Parkway in Moonlight

SOLD 9.24.2013 The moon has been crazy the last few nights..... so bright... and my "Beauty Sleep" eye mask has had a hard time doing its job. :-). This image is from one of my favorite places in Exeter. My husband and I have walked this parkway so many times. Each time we walk it, we think "what a lovely town"... "how did we end up in such a nice place" and then we look for the turtle... probably the same turtle we watched 15 plus years ago with our children. The parkway is home to festivals, concerts, and farmer's markets. It is a place where people stop to have their lunch, finish their ice cream or just sit and watch the water. This painting, just off the easel, is 11x14 on a deep profile gallery wrap canvas. Now available for a preview.
