Different Strokes Painting Party for Staples

On May 4, 2017 I was invited to present my Different Strokes Painting Program at the Staples Loss Prevention Department’s Annual Meeting held at Wentworth by the Sea in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  Following lunch,  23 students joined me as we picked up our paint brushes and began the process of creating our own original paintings of the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.  Refreshments were served through out the program and, at the conclusion, Yolanda’s painting won first prize.  She did a great  job, and I am including her picture and others taken during the program.  These will make wonderful keepsakes of their time spent in Portsmouth!

Working with Tower Hill on Upcoming Programs for 2017

I have been in conversation with Tower Hill Botanic Gardens in Boylston MA about presenting my painting programs to their guests in July and August.  Will let you know when exact dates are firmed up but right now we are looking at a morning program on July 20 and an afternoon program on August 6.  Summer is such a beautiful time of the year for gardens, so we have decided to harvest some blooms from their gardens and capture the colors and shapes on canvas with step by step instruction from me.  These classes will be geared to the beginner painter and will be perfect for anyone who has always wanted to try their hand at painting, but never did.

Easels for Painting Parties

Stephen has been busy for two days straight, designing, cutting, and assembling wood for 20 new easels for an upcoming painting party.  It sure is getting dusty down there in the workshop!  Almost done though and will take a picture to post later.  Thank goodness for his woodworking skills!
