Getting Ready!

I am spending a good amount of time getting myself in order to teach the workshop THIS Saturday, wohoo!  

But I don't skip out on my daily hike very often, and instead of painting inside, I have been doing some little nature sketching instead.     While the dogs run around after mice and rabbits, I grab a hunk of ground and my itty-bitty sketch journal and relax.  

Everything is brown this time of year, so I used walnut ink in a waterbrush, ink, and a white gel pen for highlights.    I have no idea how long I spend at these, the time just slips by with the breeze.

Last Chance for the Workshop!

I have decided this will be the last week for signing up for the workshop.   I will need to know just how many to plan for, so I can be sure to give each student all I can in one short, but very full day of class.   The price is $60 for the one day class, on Feb. 25th, 10-5 in Mitchell SD.   Last day for registration will be Saturday, Feb. 11th.   What a great Valentine's gift that would make!

On another note, one aspect of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge is having a lot of new work in a short time!   I tape them to the wall in the studio, its kinda fun seeing them all together like this.

Wouldn't one of these be a great Valentine's Day gift?   A very "original" idea!   Gift Certificates also available, if you would rather let your special person pick out their own.

If you're interested in one of these, the cost ranges from $35 for the smaller b/w sketches, up to $100 for the larger paintings.   Framing is also available!    Contact me at to purchase.
