Upcoming Fall Workshops 

This Fall we will be offering two mini-workshops! We'll bring back our popular "Mastering Color" workshop from the spring, and adding a "Drawing for Painting" workshop to the mix. Check our website later this summer for dates and more details!


There has been a lot of traveling and a lot of spring cleaning (and yard work!) this spring, but in between everything we've kept busy:

Whitney: I have been on a huge kick of horses and bird paintings this year, and it doesn't seem to be letting up any time soon! For me, both of these subjects are a perfect excuse to play with bold color.

Terry: I began this spring by exploring many of the Southwest subjects that first inspired my love of art, and after our recent travels south I'm excited to continue with the theme!
