New Classes and Workshops Coming this Fall

As the end of summer has approached it's time to think about the Fall and Winter art class sessions in my studio. I've been intensely focused on the "Portraits of American Veterans Project" for the last two years, with the 20th painting completed last month. Now I am turning my studio time over to new work and some new classes. I will continue developing the PAVP, moving into the writing, research and promotional phase with a few more portraits to add in the following months. I will post the new works as they are completed.
