December 3, 2009 5-8 pm
Free and Open to the public.

Announcing my affiliation with Studio 151 Fine Arts Gallery, 151 East Bay St, Charleston, SC and the French Quarter Art Walk in historic downtown Charleston.

On Friday evening, December 3, 2010,
enjoy the cool evening air, beautiful art, wine and snacks as you stroll through the French Quarter, which is one of the most picturesque and charming neighborhoods on the peninsula. With cobbled streets and gas-lit alleyways, flowers hanging from window boxes, The French Quarter is a work of art in itself. Located within the original walled city and founded by the French Huguenots, you will stroll the streets to discover the works of well over 500 artists representing a diverse variety of styles and mediums from traditional to contemporary.

Tuesday paint group to be on TV!

Pin It Occasionally, I would post something about our Tuesday Painting Group. Since I have moved to Charleston, I really, really miss these outings and these wonderful friends! As you can see, we always had fun. On this day, we were deep in a plein air lesson from Carol Jessen. Aaron Mermelstein spotted us in Kirkwood and decided to hang around a bit. See video and his message below!

Here is the message from the photographer, Aaron Mermelstein.

I shot the story of you and your class painting the Kirkwood depot in May, I think, and it's been "on the shelf" for so long we had to chop the dust off of it with a pick axe. But it's finally online and will start to air on HEC-TV (channel 989 on Charter, 98 on U-Verse), next week.
I not only have to apologize for the delay (the place works at an absolutely glacial pace), but also for my photography...this was the first one of these I shot with that teeny-tiny camera and it taught me that you CAN'T hold it in your hand without it looking like the New Madrid Fault was going crazy. It taught me to use a tripod for later stories.
Anyway, I think it turned out pretty well and I hope you enjoy it.

Sprouted Onion

Pin It

What do you do with an onion that has sprouted?
This onion never made it to the chopping table for dinner!

First of all, it was an awesome sprout and looked beautiful but also
it was a bit soft...... yuk!

So, out went the knives and in came the camera!
I decided to paint it on Yupo paper and to just let the paint do all great things that watercolor does!
