Florida tree


Here's a sketch I did a while ago while my husband was off fishing. It's amazing to me how much detail I was able to draw when I just sat still for half an hour! I'm usually in such a rush when I'm sketching.

Learn to Draw classes for beginners


I'll also be teaching some learn to draw classes in Exeter. Going to meet with the woman in charge tomorrow. I've been working on my lessons and handouts this week. I may do both a children's class and an adult class and see which I prefer teaching. I'm really excited about this. I've had cabin fever this summer and I need to get out of the studio and out into the world again! Who else gets cabin fever after a while? Art can sometimes turn into such a solitary business. Any teachers out there with good advice on how long to hold the class and how many weeks?

Colored Pencil Workshops

I've been asked to give another colored pencil workshop and maybe teach a regular weekly class. Looking forward to getting out of the studio some more. It's been a long summer! I'll post updates when I have more information.
