"Ayrshire Afternoon" 9x20 Pastel
Meet the Instructors Art Reception Saturday, December 14th
Please join me at the Oatlands on Saturday, December 14th from 4-6pm for a Holiday Exhibition and Celebration! This exhibit features the artwork of the talented instructors at the new Greenhouse Studio. I'm honored and excited to have two paintings included in the show. Come and see the Greenhouse teaching space, meet the instructors, and share in some holiday cheer!
Thursday Evening Pastel Class
Last time I checked, there were still a couple of spots left in my Thursday evening class at the Great Falls School of Arts beginning January 30th. See https://greatfallsart.org/event/pastels/ to register. Also, a bi-weekly Monday afternoon class is in the works. Dates and registration info TBD but let me know if you're interested!
Daytime Pastel Classes at the Oatlands!
For those of you who haven't heard, Walt Bartman, who is behind the very successful development of the Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery in Glen Echo, has undertaken a project to transform the historic Oatlands Plantation greenhouse into a painting studio that will be the center for classes and workshops. I will be teaching a 10-week Painting with Pastels class on Wednesday afternoons 12:30-3pm beginning January 15th. 10 weeks of classes is $295. I'm super-excited to work in this heated, sunny space, filled with the Oatland gardens' tropical plants. A new website is in the works, for registration, but in the meantime if you're interested, please send an email to email@example.com.
Beautiful Loudoun Exhibit
If you're in downtown Leesburg, please stop in the Loudoun County Government Center to view the "Beautiful Loudoun" show. This exhibit comprises many beautiful paintings by the members of the Loudoun Sketch Club, continuing to celebrate it's 75th year. My painting, "Ayrshire Afternoon" is there.

If you'd like to come by my studio, I have new notecards and affordable sketches and studies, in addition to my framed gallery work. Just contact me for an appointment!
If you happen to be in the beautiful Outer Banks and want to see some very fine art, check out the Seaside Art Gallery in Nagshead. I have several Seascapes in the gallery.
I offer private lessons (including Anyone Can Draw and Getting Started in Pastels) in my home studio in Leesburg. Please contact me if you would like to visit and see my latest works in progress. And leave your email if you'd like to be added to my notification list for upcoming classes and events.
