I monitor a regular Portrait Group at the college.

BYO art supplies: draw or paint
Model sits in at 7:00pm-9:45 PM

This is a once a month open portrait group. All levels are welcome. There is no instruction but we gather to practice together and learn from each other. Norwalk Community College hosts the group as a service and for creative outreach to the community. So thank you, NCC! and the Department of Art, Architecture and Design.
There is a small cost for attending and covering the model’s fee.
$5.00 full time NCC student

Save the date, July 21-our next session.

Contributions go to the Arts Club at NCC after the model is paid.

I am teaching this summer
and I’m hoping you will join me or share my class schedule with interested students and artists.
I am teaching two different classes on Tuesday nights and Thursday nights, for 6 sessions each. One class is Portraiture and the other is Still Life Painting: Oil. Both classes are at Norwalk Community College. Please take a look at the information that follows and think about joining the fun; it would be great to be creative with you this summer.

I’ve moved my studio

May 2, 2014 Comments Off

Hello friends and patrons. I moved my art studio
on April 1, 2014. I am no longer associated with the factory space-Firing Circuits Studios. This was a hard decision, but after eight years I was ready for a change.

I am now situated in Norwalk, in a large studio that is private and tranquil; my commute has been seriously shortened to down the hall, slippers on, coffee in hand-home. Stay tuned for creativity to follow. Feels good.

Small Figures.

in the Studio.

I’ve been building a selection of small figures. Many are from my imagination, some are inspired by Rodin’s sketchbook, some are from larger life drawings I’ve done in the past. I’m working on a cool paper that allows smudging. Then I push the limits of a variety of drawing materials: markers, oil crayons, watercolor, inks. You can see I also use an etching pen to carve into the pigments. Next step. Take a few of these to larger images.

Drawings. September. 2013

I’m in the studio. Drawing-using whatever is lying around. Sort of.

I make that sound too haphazard. I do have my preferences these days, especially in papers. And I’ve returned to oils. My acrylics are so old and unvisited, I’ve discovered that I have to throw most of them away.

Teaching is tremendously satisfying for me. The 2013 Spring semester is coming to a close. The Norwalk Community College student show is opening on Wednesday, May 1, from 12:30-1:30. The student work is particularly strong this year. NCC classes have been running full, which is a healthy sign for the art department; we must be doing something right.

The Mercy and Me fund-raiser in Little Rock Arkansas, for Mount St. Mary Academy, appeared to be a great success. It was wonderful to share the podium with Beatrice Biira and learn of her successes and accomplishment since I met her in 1994 when she was 12. I look forward to watching her build towards her future from this point forward. I am proud to have participated in a book project that has brought awareness to a wonderful organization-Heifer International.
