Easter Weekend

Straight ahead we saw this..... our right there was a thick,dense cloud of deep pink with a complete rainbow.

This was the dramatic sky I saw on my way home from Albany on Wednesday evening. We are busy preparing to celebrate Easter tomorrow and I thought this sky was a wonderful reminder of the Glory of God that we as artists see all around us in His creation. I have never seen such a sky before. Monday I will take pictures of the paintings I did at the workshop and post about some of the things I took away from the teaching.

Workshop with Qiang Huang

Well there is so much to tell about the workshop I'll have to break it up into a few posts. Unfortunately it is back to the real world as soon as I got home and this will be short. Let me just say Qiang Huang is a marvelous, generous and patient teacher. His presentation is very organized and if you come willing to learn, you will. The first photo is one of the demos he did for us on the second day so we could watch him paint roses in a still life. Each and every stroke he takes is well thought out and deliberate.  

          If you get an opportunity to study with him you will not be disappointed! More tomorrow.

road trip

I am heading to Albany, NY for a three day workshop with  Qiang Huang. I have admired his skill with still life and have been following his career for awhile. It will be very exciting to meet him and watch him paint. Last I heard there was still a space open because of a cancelation. Contact Kristin at I'll post some pictures when I get back.
