July Happenings

Time just gets away from me and I haven't blogged in a long time.  Right now getting ready to spend the next 5 weeks teaching kids and the fab Dutchess Arts Camp in Pouhgkeepsie and Red Hook, NY I will be teaching mixed media projects centered around a different theme each week.  It is my 7th summer doing this. 

Just finished teaching my Spring Plein Air Watercolor class for adults last weekend.  We painted everything from the Hudson River, Historic Houses and Llamas. One of my students even painted me and gave me the painting as a gift! What a nice surprise! 

 Here's the llama barn on my neighbor's property!

Also just submitted paintings for two shows - The opening of the Clearwater show at the Art Society of Kingston opens Saturday night - July 6th.  I have two paintings in this show.  Also the On Vacation show at the Gray Owl Gallery in New Paltz will feature new Adirondack paintings.  I am really enjoying painting from the perspective of being on a boat.  This show opens July 20th from 5-7pm.  The Gallery is located at Water Street Market on  Main Street in New Paltz.  This painting is one I almost don't want to sell as it reminds me of the joy of being immersed in nature (literally in the water in a Kayak). 

Enjoy the pictures and come see the show!!
