The Figure in Pastels and Oils Workshop, Glastonbury, CT, October 23-27, 2022

 I know this is an insane schedule. I didn't mean for it to happen. 

When Covid hit in March 2020, all of my classes for the year were cancelled. Every. Single. One. And then it happened again in 2021. Every single class was cancelled. So when I started receiving calls to hold classes in 2022, I thought, heck, they'll be cancelled too. At best, only half will be cancelled. So I said yes to all of them.

2022: none of them cancelled, all of them are filling, and I'm rushing in and out of town all year. It is a little crazy.

All this is to say...I'll be teaching in Glastonbury, CT, October 23-27, in what looks like a gorgeous place, The Connecticut River Valley Inn. Visit the Inn's site to see how pretty it all is. 

And here's the info on the class. I'd love to have you join us:

Thursday evening classes at Spruill Art Center, Dunwoody GA:
Two day workshop at FountainHead Studios, Marietta, GA Jan. 21-22:


Wednesday, December 8, 2021



I have uploaded about 60 oils and pastels to eBay for my STUDIO CLEARANCE SALE. Some of these are sketches, some are quick demos from my classes, some have tried but never found their new homes. None are framed but they are standard sizes and will fit into ready-made frames. Keep in mind that your monitor is not calibrated to mine, so there may be color differences.

AUCTION: Auctions begin today, Wednesday, Dec. 8, at 10:00. Auctions end in 7 days, next Wednesday.

SHIPPING: Shipping prices are added to the sale. Once the auctions are complete, I will ship via US Postal Service. If you purchase multiple paintings, I can combine shipping; eBay should accommodate that so you won’t have excessive shipping costs. I assume shipping may take 3 or 4 days. If you need your shipment expedited, contact me through eBay, I will send you an invoice to cover overnight FedEx shipping.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: contact me through eBay for revised shipping rate.

This link will take you to my eBay page:

Good luck with your bidding.

 Just a heads-up here...I'm getting ready to upload a whole bunch of pastels and oils for another STUDIO CLEARANCE SALE. It's time to clean out my studio to make room for all the new work I'll be creating in the upcoming year.

All works are older pieces which have been around way too long; they will be 8x10 or larger, and will be auctioned on eBay with prices beginning as low as $100. Last time I did this (several years ago), most of them sold for just that much. Auctions begin this coming Wednesday, Dec. 8, at 10 a.m., and each piece will be up for 5-7 days. That should give any buyers plenty of time to receive them by Christmas.
I will post links on Facebook, Instagram, through my blog, and through my e-newsletter. If you want to be added to my mailing list, email me at

Two things you might find interesting: Pastel Society of America "Enduring Brilliance" National Exhibition and The Aimee Copeland Foundation.

"Kristin at the Piano," One of the pastels I painted for my Patreon demo was accepted into the Pastel Society of America national exhibition. You can see the show catalog here:

My painting, "A Song Before Dinner, " (9x12 framed oil), has been entered into the silent auction for the Aimee Copeland Foundation fundraiser. The online auction goes live Monday night (tonight, September 20).
Aimee Copeland, you might remember, is the beautiful college girl who at age 24 fell into a creek from a home-made zip line in the west Georgia woods several years ago. She was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating bacterial infection. While the doctors worked hard to save her life, they had to amputate both of Aimee's hands, her right foot and her entire left leg.
Today she a remarkable inspiration for the handicapped. The Aimee Copeland Foundation Gala Fundraiser will be at the Chastain Horse Park in Atlanta on Saturday, September 25. Tickets and info available at
