My San Diego Workshop is Filling Fast! We will visit some of 
my favorite cottage gardens on Coronado Island and tour
this charming sea-side town, and paint brilliant flowers in oils.

Wild Blue Hydrangeas is the newest small work in Flower Mound Studio, as I finish packing for my first workshop in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, this weekend.  I'll be hand-carrying my brushes on the plane, to make sure they are not crushed in transit, along with my new IPad. Some of the talented gals in my Kansas City workshop last month convinced me of the merits of the new IPad once I saw the amazing photos they were able to capture on theirs. Much easier to carry an IPad than a big ole 35mm camera in my carry-on bag. I'll be sharing photos of my Missouri class this weekend, and my students' works in oils, so stay tuned!
