I've just finished a great workshop, my last at my Minnesota studio, the 6th Annual. Below are the full demos that I did for the class and a group shot of some wonderful people who came to study painting with me from 7 different states. It was a great week, I'll miss holding classes at this location.

I neglected to add this piece which was done as the last demo on Friday afternoon for about 7 of my students who wanted to see me do a pastel. I hadn't had time, until we were finally done with the critique early. Everyone was spent, including me, but we found some shade, they got some chairs, and I painted the trees up the hill behind me in the yard. I enjoyed using the pastels after a long week of oil painting.

The last class at my Minnesota studio in Taylors Falls. Artists from 7 states, some who've been with me a number of times, some who I've just had the pleasure of meeting and painting with. One and all, a wonderful bunch of people and artists. Thank you all for the time you gave to learn and enjoy this love we share.
