In our busy lives it is hard to do this. I have a proposal for you. Imagine immersing yourself into this world of simple beauty. Imagine taking the time to really see. Learn to use your senses to simplify and paint with expression and passion.
I have been invited to teach a pastel workshop in such a place. Consider joining me the week of October 7-14 for a Pastel Workshop Retreat at a wonderful Abbey in Pecos, New Mexico near Santa Fe.
|'By the River' 5x7 pastel $95|
The Abbey has a retreat center and lovely grounds which includes a pond and wonderful trees. There is a river, distant mountain views, old buildings....plenty of painting inspiration. It is the perfect place for immersing ourselves for a few days in the wonderful world of art. We will spend time reflecting, experimenting, seeing and painting the beauty that surrounds us. I will share my techniques and thoughts about painting in a more loose, expressive and simple way. There will be many demos, discussions, feedback sessions and plenty of individual help at your easel.
