Williams Bay Art & Craft Festival

It was a beautiful weekend (July 29 & 30) for the event and I met a lot of friendly people.  The crowds on both days were good and I sold a nice amount of art.  I plan on participating next year.

Portrait Workshop taught by Jean Pederson

I attended a five-day workshop in Kenosha, Wisc. which focused on portraits using a method that Jean Pederson uses on her paintings to create transparent flesh tones.  We also sketched from two models in costume.  I completed two pieces and did multiple sketches and the week was intense but very worthwhile.

Public Arts Pony Project

The Palos Heights Public Library will be receiving a new addition for the children's department.  Maria DeCaprio-Sunta has designed a kid-friendly theme for the pony.  Pages from children's books have been used to collage the entire body and 12 different characters from famous books have been hand-painted on the body.  The pony will be located on the second floor of the library for the children to enjoy.

David Daniels Watercolor Workshop

I attended a four-day workshop in Boynton Beach to learn from master watercolorist, David Daniels.  I posted my new pieces in the Watercolor section of my website.
