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.
For more information please contact Janet Miller at The Travel Gallery (561) 745-1559 or email@example.com
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!
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!
Plein Air Provence Painting Workshop

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!
I just got back from giving my watercolor workshop at SnowFarm in Massachusetts. Below are some photos from that journey that includes a two shots of my wonderful students that attended. If any one has a chance to spend of week at SnowFarm it is an experience that you will not forget. It is a wonderful experience to spend a week immersed in your art making, meeting new people and just having a good time.
Below are two paintings that I did to illustrate principles that I was teaching. People relate the most to the contrast of lights and darks. The greater you can stretch those values the more the viewer will respond. The greater you can stretch the contrast of temperature within the work the more people will also respond. Hue is the least important of the three. The inexperienced artist always spends way to much time trying to match color exactly as it is seen. Through value and temperature one can give the work its emotional language that the viewer can read.
I just completed the plein air workshop that I gave on Desert Island in Maine. The weather was absolutely perfect, the locations gorgeous, the participants a delight and of course the lobster to die for. No matter where you look there is a painting waiting to be painted.
