What Are You Doing Tuesday Nights this Spring?

Calling Working Folks, Teens and You ... for Evening Paint

Coming in April: I'll be teaching "Evening Paint," a six-session class focusing on the fundamentals of oil painting on Tuesday nights, 6:30 to 9:30pm at the Great Falls School of Art, newly located at 746 Walker Road, right in the Village Centre in Great Falls, VA. 

Read more about it on my web site here.

As my Sunday Winter portrait class draws to a close, I was feeling guilty about not offering a continuing option for students with day jobs to paint with me ... and so, here's the answer. I've also had a whole lot of requests from earnest young artists who wanted to take my classes but couldn't because they conflicted with school.

All levels welcome. Teens and adults. A mix of still life, portrait/clothed figure and landscape from photos or right outside the classroom door.

Instruction will be tailored to suit.

Registration is available online now from my classes page. Any questions, please email me at

And, then there's:
Plein Air Landscape Painting on Thursdays, 10am to 2pm
Paint with Me in Italy, July 27 to August 2 in the wine region of Piemonte, Italy

In other words, I REALLY want you to come paint with me ... in Italy and/or Virginia!
