More Workshop News

Finished writing the book for the workshop I'll be teaching at Diane Havnen-Smith's retreat in Clackamas. We've set the date for November 18th from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm. If there is enough interest we will book a second day on the 19th. We are limiting each class to 8 students which will make the classes small and intimate. I will be supplying most of the materials needed and a great lunch and dessert will be provided. Diane is moving office this weekend and hasn't gotten the forms up on her website yet at innerstandings so if you want to reserve a spot you can also email me at to get your name on a list.

I have sold reverse painted acrylics on acrylic panel at art fairs for the past 7 years and they are wonderfully received for their bold colors and playful character. I will demonstrate all my "secrets" and list my suppliers in the book. I designed it as a workbook of sorts and each student will leave with samples of techniques as well as a self portrait at the end of the day. The cost of the class will be $130.

That's all for now. I've worked really hard this week on the lesson plan and workbook for this class and now I have a few commissions to turn my attention to. I will get those under way even as Carla Sonheim arrives to stay with me during Art and Soul this week. I have 2 all day classes scheduled and am so excited about the changes that always come with new skills and friendships. Be well, everyone. Hope to see you soon.
