Cheyenne East High School watercolor class

Thank you to Cheyenne East High School watercolor students and their teacher Sarah Krank for inviting me to come and teach a watercolor workshop today.  Our focus was landscape painting. We also learned some of the properties of watercolor paints, as well as a little color theory and range of values, along with several techniques for working with watercolors.

Mount Moran Morning

This small watercolor was donated to Ark Regional Services for their recent fundraiser.  Apparently there were quite a few folks who liked the painting because it received many bids in the silent auction, and sold for a good price.  Thank you to the patron who purchased the painting, and thank you to Ark Regional Services for all you do to improve the quality of life for the disabled.  They "envision a world where every person who has a disability is embraced as an equal member of the community, appreciated for their unique and important contributions, and encouraged to participate in every pursuit that is presented to them."

Western Spirit Show

Thanks to Megan Hesser at the Old West Museum for inviting me to do the children's workshop today. Unfortunately we were so busy that we neglected to take any photos, but the children had fun doing the watercolor pouring technique. And, one of my larger paintings sold! Thanks so much to the patron who purchased my work.

Opening Night at the Nicolaysen

Yesterday was opening night for my show and artist talk for "The Magic of Africa" at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper.  The show will be in the Rosenthal Gallery through January 22, of 2017.  The paintings in this show were inspired by our 2009 visit to the Serengeti of Tanzania.  Many of the wildlife species depicted in this body of work are either threatened or endangered.  Climate change is but one of the factors threatening Africa's wildlife species.  These iconic wildlife populations are being decimated by poaching and habitat loss.  It is my hope that my art will make a connection with the viewer that fosters conservation values.
