First Workshop

I had been asked a few times in the past if I would do a Torn Paper Painting workshop. Not feeling quite ready to do that at those times I kept turning down the idea.
Well....yes...it's time. My very first Torn Paper Painting Workshop will be held May 20 & 21 at the Fall River Art Association.
If you're in the area at this time....book a spot. I'd love to meet you :)

Back at it....finally

After what seemed like forever that I was sick with a bug and unable to do much of anything....I'm back !!
I had sketched this piece out and done an underpainting ages ago...but was unable to get to it until now. As I felt better I would go to the art room each day and see how much time I could put in on my feet. Every day I made a bit more progress. Last night...I finished it!! Varnish and all.
Today I took a drive to The Little Beach Gallery in Hyannis and brought some new work to freshen the wall for the upcoming season! Jen just actually purchased the building and it's looking really beautiful!
Since this little piece was ready to go...I took it along, as well as some of the new beach toy pail & shovel pieces and the cabanas. The walls are about to have "summer" written all over them!!
I'll post a few progress shots of the lighthouse on the Torn Paper Paintings FaceBook Fan Page soon, as I did with a few other pieces recently.

Beach Cabanas

 I never seem to stray too far from the beach. I've gone from beach toys to beach cabanas!
Wasn't sure how long it would take me to finish this one since I found myself with a sinus infection while half way through. It did slow the progress, though not that much.
I'll be putting a few progress shots of it on the FaceBook Fan Page.
I included one messy shot of the work table here while I was trying to plan out the papers for the sand.
I'll be putting it back on the easel for a day or two before I varnish it. I always do that so I can see if anything jumps out at me that wants to be changed.
Now....on to the next piece!!
