Classes Start, Snow Comes, and we keep painting!

Studio classes started last week, and in spite of sleet, snow and very COLD days, we were able meet on the scheduled days. We shared so much work at critique, it was clear that many stayed busy painting over the holidays. I will be posting some of these paintings soon. River's Edge Studio is expanding in Feburary, and the classroom will soon be available for painters to use on a part time basis. With the addition of the ajoining studio, there will be much more room for classes, some extra storage space, and more space for my own work area too. I am looking forward to it!

Since the Studio/Critique classes were filling fast, 6 new dates have been added to the schedule. These new dates are not on the workshop page, so if you wish to attend, email or call for available sessions that still have space.

A highlight of the holidays was the dedication of Betty McClung's painting, "The Life of Christ". Betty donated this oil painting to her church in the memory of her Husband, John, and it now has a place of honor. It was a special event and Betty's painter friends enjoyed the dedication, and the lunch to celebrate the occasion. We have watched while Betty developed this work and are so happy to see it in its permanent home as Betty had intended.
