Back from Austin/ Beautiful models

I had a wonderful time in Austin giving a workshop at the Dragonfly Gallery on Rosedale. What a great group. Lots of art and lots of laughs. I recommend this venue to anyone interested in doing a workshop in Austin. The owner Nina Mihm is the hostess with the mostest. This is a new gallery in Austin, the work changes monthly and I'm going back to see the next show. As I have a daughter in Austin, I have more than one reason to go back.  Nina supplied the models, what a treat.  The one on the right is her daughter, if you need a beautiful model call Dragonfly.

Am heading to Austin on Thursday to teach a workshop, have been scrambling to get some images to take.  This is the last one I will do as I need to get back to some other pieces I have been wanting to do.  This one I did to show my heavily collaged style of working.    I now have so many pieces collected that I am anxious to try to use more ideas I have formed.  That's my favorite thing about working on these.  One idea leads to another.  There is never enough time to do them all.  Not to mention I forget half of them.

Watersoluble Pencils

Have been working with watersoluble penceil, trying to get the hang of it.  I think I will like it, but have a long way to go to master it.  I apply gesso to watercolor paper to give the ground more tooth.  Will try more of this as it makes an interesting texture.

Monday July 12

am getting together some pieces to take to Austin.  I will be teaching at the Dragonfly Gallery at Rosedale on the 23, 24, and 25th.  Want to take several different approaches to painting the figure.

July 4

Am behind on posting, finished my watercolor class for the summer.  Will go to Austin the 22nd for a workshop at Dragonfly Gallery, which is exciting.  We have our annual show at Archway this weekend.  The judge is Jeff Law.  I am looking forward to a big opening and lots of new faces.  My "Bailey" dogs are in the show.  It benefits the Houston Humane Society.  This is a painting of "Kristina" that I intend to enter in the Watercolor Society's July show.  It is a Teacher/Student show, have begged my students to enter and will post pictures of their work if they did.
