The Show Will Go On

Taliesin - Midway 12x16"

Midway Morning 20x24"
The Taliesin Artists are having a showing of our work at the Overture Center For The Arts in Madison, WI.
In 2011, 25 artists were chosen to paint on the grounds of Taliesin for two months. Artists who participated were invited to a gala auction at the end of the summer, with proceeds benefiting the Taliesin estate. Chris Gargan, John Ribble, and I had a three person show as well as participating in the gala, but there has never been a showing of ALL the Taliesin artists... until now! The show will open in May, my favorite time of year in Madison. Special thanks to Cynde Quinn for corralling the painters and getting the show on it's way.

The Dates Are Set!

I am happy to announce a 3 day workshop on January 18-20, 2013, at the Peninsula School Of Art in Fish Creek. The workshop is going to focus on my favorite facets of painting, values and composition! I find that painting interior and still life is a very refreshing change of pace from landscape painting, and the winter is a perfect time to study values and color. There are fresh value arrangement and color harmonies in waiting around (and in) every corner, and these are worth exploring. In my workshops I describe the information in several different ways and make sure that the concepts make sense to every student. In order to make the concepts of value design clear, I provide a few tools that ensure success, I even include some video lessons that recap the main ideas of the class. We are going to put some serious miles on our brushes, I hope you can join us!
