I was very honored to have the oil painting "Caught in the moment" selected to be in the "Artists of the Eastern Shore" collection displayed at the Seidel School, Salisbury University.
Dr. Meekins desired to donate a lasting gift that would exemplify both her love for teaching and her interest in art.

Branching out

20 x 20 oil painting
This Wednesday will start the series of oil painting classes, using the water based oils if possible. Love that they have no odor and will clean up with water! The Art Institute and Gallery art class room has good lighting and plenty of room to paint. . We work on composition, perspective and color balance, and develop a joy for painting. While there is nothing like drawing skills to improve your painting, it is not necessary to be able to draw to do a fine painting. Really! Check out the www.andg.oorg for more information on classes..
This weekend I have delivered an oil painting titled "Branching Out" to Ocean City Art League for their juried member show opening April 1. "Lone loon" is the title of the watercolor/pastel I took to Worcester County Arts Council for their second Friday event in Berlin. "Shades of summer" was entered in the Art Institute and Gallery show, winning a second ribbon. Barbara Beachump won the third and her daughter Lois won the first. Great little show, dont' miss it.
