I am pleased to announce a 5-day workshop to be held at my studio in Port Orange, Florida, October 17-21, 2011. Mark your calendars and make your plans now!
Port Orange is a small community just a few miles south of Daytona Beach and about 5 miles from white, sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. The workshop opens with a meet-and-greet Sunday evening for early arrivals. Q&A's and open discussions scheduled workshop evenings for those wanting a little more info. Lunch is provided each workshop day, with coffee and tea available anytime during the workshop hours.
The focus of the workshop is painting the still life incorporating the indirect method and techniques of the old masters. Demonstrations and lectures will be given each morning focusing on a skill(s) needed for each day's work. My workshop features a small group setting of no more than eight students so that I can give one-on-one instruction to better meet your individual needs. Some painting experience is required. You will be provided with a printed manual with information to cut down on note taking during class. More information on the curriculum is forthcoming.
Please join me for this great opportunity learning to paint in the indirect method and spend time in a unique and historic area of Florida. One evening will be spent at Cracker Creek on a wine cruise down the waters of Spruce Creek. Check out their website here.
Lodging is available within three miles of my studio, as well as, ample motels on the beach which is approximately five miles away. The Daytona International Airport is just ten mile from the studio. Contact me for information at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Workshop Fee: $500
A deposit of $150 holds your place; remainder of fee due by Oct 1. No refunds after Oct. 12, 2011.

It's been a few weeks since my last post. My only excuse is that I have been behind the easel painting, painting, painting. My goal is to increase my portfolio which means painting daily up to eight hours a day. Almost forgot to share information about the National Oil Painters of America's exhibition at the Devon Gallery in Couer' d Alene, Idaho. Check out all the great paintings being shown this month.
