I was so excited to see my painting "I Will" featured on Fine Art Connoissuer's website in their article on the exhibition "Loved and Observed." This was an exhibition of female artists curated by Manu Saluja and Diana Corvelle at Hersh Fine Art in Long Island, NY. It was such an honor to be shown alongside so many other amazing female artists! Check out the whole article HERE.

I had a busy vacation this past month, teaching four portrait painting workshops in BC while I was there! I started with a full palette workshop at the Okanagan School of the Arts in Penticton, then taught a limited palette workshop in Lake Country, followed by a full palette class at the Lake Country Art House and finished up with a full palette workshop in my hometown, Nelson, BC. All of the workshops were a ton of fun and everyone did an amazing job! Here are some photos from the workshops, as well as step by step shots of the demos I did in the classes. We actually filmed a full three hour video of the demo I did at the Lake Country Art House, and I'm editing that together right now, so I'll post the video soon (*does anyone know if it's possible to post a three hour video on Youtube? Most of the videos on Youtube are shorter... will I need to post it on Vimeo instead I wonder? I'm learning as I go :-) Anyway, congratulations to all the participants of these workshops, you all did such wonderful paintings!

Here are some scans from the article I had in the April/May issue (#96) of International Artist Magazine, where I share a step-by-step tutorial on creating atmospheric effects in a complex composition. Back issues of this issue can be ordered online HERE. It includes many other great tutorials by artists such as Richard Schmid and Daniel Maidman, as well as an in-depth interview by Christine Egnoski with faculty artists from the Portrait Society of America!
