I am a native of California now living in Indiana. I joined SDP in 1975. I work in Oils primarily as it is the most forgiving and relaxed medium. I enjoy the “Old Masters” and a realistic style. My studio holds five seminars a year and in between I travel teach for chapters and at four convention every year.
Back to the Beach Conference is exciting to look forward to. I am teaching a simple stilllife in fresh Florida colors. I will emphasis the basics of stillife painting, value control, blending skills, creating a light source, etc.
Conference is the perfect place to try something you are not used to doing….all the materials are provided and you have a teacher to ask all your questions of. I am a good teacher and will be there for you.
And Conference for me is a coming together of friends. Many of these friends I see only once a year. We have a common love of painting and pick up right where we left off. It is a great time to see what is new and try new products. Last but not least is the opportunity to view the Certification program and improve my skills. As I am preparing surfaces and lesson plans I cannot wait to see all my old friends and make new ones while enjoying the Beach on the Atlantic Ocean. See you there!
