I will be doing a few workshops in the next few months, would love to have you join us.

The first will be a 2-day workshop on (Sat/Sun) September 18-19, 2010, 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Saturday we will be working from still life setups outdoors at my studio, and on Sunday we'll be painting on location (location TBD). Cost: $300 (email me for payment options and more info).

The second workshop is scheduled for another Sat/Sun, October 16-17, 2010. This one is being set up by LAAFA, so you can contact them to register: Visit their website or call them at 818/708-9232. This landscape workshop (locations TBD) will also go from 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and cost $300. Both of these workshops are limited to ten students and are on a first-come first-served basis.

I'm planning a workshop out in Joshua Tree National Park at some point in the near future (in the winter or spring, of course). There are lots of great places to stay out there. This workshop would probably be limited to 8-10 students. Leave a comment if you'd be interested in this - you've got to see and paint the California desert if you haven't yet. (For some paintings of the desert in and around Joshua Tree, check out work from my solo exhibit at The Forbes Gallery in New York, ongoing until Sept. 25, 2010.)
