John Poon Workshop

I have been busy trying to prepare a slide show presentation for an Artists Bootcamp at the Atlanta Artists Center on Saturday, March 28. I have also been working on getting a portfolio together to present to a gallery tomorrow so I have not been doing a lot of painting. I did paint a couple of plein air pieces last week when we took a trip to Albany.
Next week is going to be a busy week. I am taking a second workshop with John Poon. I did a workshop with him last October and he was such a wonderful instructor that everyone who attended wanted to get him back. That will be from Monday through Friday and then I am painting in a plein air paint out in Blue Ridge on Saturday and Sunday.
I should have a lot of paintings to add to the blog after I get back.

This painting is in the March show at the Atlanta Artists Center. It is one of a series of still lives I painted in December and January when it was too cold to get outdoors. It was set up and painted from life.

Well, finally it got warm and dry enough to photograph some of the new pieces painted in the last week or two.
This little cow painting was a real blast to paint. His name is Roscoe. Hope you like him too.
