New Studio Construction

My new studio is finally under construction; it is an addition onto my house, which will be very convenient. Unlike the current studio, which is the upstairs of a barn, the new one will have running water - YAY!  A sink where I can wash my brushes and change my paint water. It will also have lots of vertical wall space and high ceilings. Here are a few photos from this week:

The digging begins.  The little building to the right is the back and side of the post office.

The digging is done.

Footings are being poured.
I'll post occasional pictures as it progresses.  I hope it will be done in the spring.

New Book of Collage Papers

My new book of collage papers is now available at Amazon!  This is a book you are meant to cut up and use the pieces in your own work. It includes over seventy 8.5"x11" full page patterns, all from my hand-painted papers, my original paintings, and collages. 

Lucie Duclos helped me design the cover.
I hope this book not only adds to your collage paper stash, but also inspires you to create more of your own hand-paint papers. There is no instruction in this book, just papers.  Check it out.

Mentoring Workshop

I have just a few spots available in my Mentoring Workshop coming up in March in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. This is a five-day workshop in which we all work independently - no instruction, no class assignments - and then I give individual feedback and coaching. We have group discussions and a few slide shows as well.  Here is a little video from my last mentoring workshop.
If you are interested in participating in the 2018 Mentoring Workshop, please e-mail me directly. I will send you the details and a way to sign up. The Atlantic Center for the Arts has light-filled, generous, studio space, comfortable accommodations, and meals right on campus. Five full days of focused art practice!
