June 3 - 9, 2017! 


Reserve Your Spot for This Summer's Workshop:

ONLY 1 SPOT LEFT! If you have been waiting, now is the time to contact me!


 This past  summer's workshop was amazing! Everyone produced some fantastic paintings, a couple of finished pieces, but many really good starts. We were very lucky with the weather and had only a couple of chilly, drizzly days. The rest were a bit overcast or sunny. All beautiful!
