End Of Summer

This is a bittersweet time;
sad to see the summer go but very excited for 
all the fall activity to start! 

In two weeks I'll be teaching weekend "Intuitive Painting"
workshop at the
Rockport Art Association
(Sept 15, 16)

"Cross Roads" 10 x 8 oil

"This workshop is geared for experienced painters who are interested in shaking things up. 
We will learn how to create more intuitive and expressive paintings 
by balancing what we see with some invention.
Less literal, more bold!
Through a series of fun quick exercises, we’ll explore ways to design more dynamic and contemporary paintings by focusing on the big shapes and their relationship to each other. 
We will discover ways to use the abstract elements of color, shape, space, and line to express an idea.  We’ll work from simple still life set-ups and photographs.
 All paint mediums are welcome. "

This will be great fun
 and a terrific way to kick off the fall season! 

"Nico's View"
8 x 8 mixed media

This week we are wrapping up the Abstract session 
 of our year long on-line class with Mark Daniel Nelson
and will begin the section titled;
"Finding Your Voice".

Looking forward to that, as I have found that
"thinking abstractly" doesn't exactly come naturally to me.

I was recently interviewed for an article in the
  Boston Voyage Magazine
You can read it HERE!

Have a safe and fun long weekend
and I'll see you in September!
