Please join me on a plein air painting adventure like no other. This workshop is designed to allow you to see the day-to-day life of the Cuban people, experience their culture in a very intimate way. The tour will have it’s own tour guide and private driver the entire time we are in Cuba. This will allow you to see and experience things that most tourist will never see. The painting experience will be varied, with options to paint urban scenes as well as the beautiful rural landscape.
SIGN UP NOW WHILE SPACE IS STILL AVAILABLE.

Please join me for my workshop on August 9-15, 2015 that I am teaching in Maine. The workshop was coordinated with an art historical perspective, with emphasis on Andrew Wyeth and Winslow Homer, and was designed to give the participant a greater understanding and insight into their most important works. We will be painting in the locations that Wyeth and Homer painted and experiencing the same beautiful Maine landscape that inspired them.
To register, contact Ted Matz at (561)-452-5710 or Terri Marra at (734)646-5889 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you there!
While everyone out there was planning on how and where they were going to spend their Black Friday, I felt the need to take a road trip and contemplate the subject myself. So I got in my car and drove along the ocean to help clear out some space in my brain, when I came upon a site that I just had to paint. It is a spot that surfers use to get out to the waves in a hurry since it is located so close to the ocean and the parking lot. I like it because it implies the water but you can’t see the ocean. All you can sense is the ocean’s call. I never stick birds in my paintings because it always seemed a bit corny but this was the one moment it seemed right. I love the key hole that the sea grapes create and how it helps to draw you in and makes you wonder what is awaiting you on the other side.
So on my journey to find out what I will do on my Black Friday I came up with the best alternative that I could come up with. While everyone’s at the mall I will be out in nature peacefully painting and recording its beauty without a sole around me.
The weather is beautiful here in south Florida right now and today was exceptionally nice. Had a great morning painting at the Loxahatchee Wildlife Preserve. Days like today are a reminder of how lucky I am to be able to paint in this type of environment. Hope you enjoy my painting as much as I did painting it. Happy winter!

I think that Maine has gotten in my blood. I truly miss it and its only been a short while. When I was in Southeast Harbor, Maine I took a boat ride and saw this lighthouse and was taken by it. I worked in pastel trying to capture what I had seen that day. Since I live in Florida it is a real treat to be able to work on a piece that has such extreme perspective. I think that is what I miss most about not being in Maine and that is the scale and the drama of the landscape. Enjoy!
