What's Happening With...?
I've been hearing this question a lot lately on several subjects. Here's
Studio Location Starting May 11
you just move your studio last summer? Why yes, yes I did. Then I
bought a new house in completely the wrong direction from the new
studio. The good news is that now I have a great studio space at
home less than 5 miles from my long time Stark Street studio so it
should still be convenient for everyone. Classes in my new space start
may 11. I'll tease you now with a photo of my new studio as it looks
today. I'll be working hard this week putting on the finishing touches
for class this weekend!
classes, I just posted my full summer schedule which
includes two Wax Week classes in Portland. I'll offer a 5-day class exploring
Encaustic & Photography in June and another 5-day class on Mixed
Media in July. Seats will be very limited so if you'd like to join
in don't wait!
Ah yes, the
eBook. This project really got hit hard and has been long delayed. I've
been in contact with the amazing artists who will
be featured in the eBook and they have been extremely supportive of
my new circumstances. I won't try to give you a publishing date just
yet but I will say this
will be the top priority for me once my studio is
settled so it's coming soon, I promise! Thanks to all of you who are so
excited to see the new version. I'm pretty excited to see it myself.
It's making me
crazy that I had just finished filming the new surface design class
when everything went south. It turned out really well and I can't wait
to share it with you. I still need to get it edited and write all the
class notes which will take some time, but I'll get it online as soon
as I can. In the meantime those of you who have already bought online
classes can rest easy, your
classes won't expire anytime soon so please enjoy them
while I work out the process of how these will work going forward. That
goes for everyone right now, so if you're thinking about joining our online
community now is the time to get extra time in the classes!
I haven't had
much time or energy for my professional work lately so I was happy to
be invited to make a painting for the Artist-a-Day
fundraiser hosted by Muse Art + Design. This event raises funds for
Schoolhouse Supplies which offers art teachers much needed supplies for
free! Here is is in process or click the link below to see the finished
piece. All paintings will be sold in a silent
auction through May 22.
That's it for now, but I promise not to be gone so long this time. As
always THANK YOU for your interest and support.
