Demonstration during recent Dakota Workshop, Mt. Vernon, WA, SOLD

It's 97ยบ in Atlanta today. I think I'll work on my computer in my air-conditioned house, even though the weeds are taking over out back. And out front.

This is a quick demonstration of mine from my recent workshop at Dakota Art Center in Mt. Vernon, WA. It was a great group of artists in my class (16 students) and it was wonderful meeting Craig Lemley and Lisa of the Dakota Art Center. Thank you, Craig and Lisa for a flawless workshop.

This 11x14 demonstration pastel is available by auction on ebay. Click the title above to watch the auction or copy and paste this: Bidding begins at $200.00.

I have just begun putting my work up on the Daily Paintworks web site; linking to my blog and ebay if the piece is up for auction. Just testing the waters on the site basically.

MODEL WITH STRIPED TOWEL is an 8x10 pastel, a bit larger than my usual small pieces, so bidding begins at $200.00. You can click on the title of this post to go to ebay, or you can click here to go to Daily Paintworks.

This doesn't mean I'll be posting something every day. But if things quiet down a bit, I'll be posting more often.

Speaking of is not quiet here. My prolific roses were completely spent when I got home from Italy. The weeds had taken over my garden again. But it's good to be home.

I leave Wednesday to teach a 3 day class in the Seattle area, at Dakota Art Center (, where I will also be hanging out with my dear friend Christine Awad, artist and art school friend from way back in 1970. She'll be assisting me in the class.
