Despite the rain - it was a great plein air event!








The Stone Mountain Plein Air Event was a success. Over 50 artists turned out to compete on this rainy day. I admit, I really struggled trying to capture the grays. What a challenge, it really shows me this is an area I really need to work on. Well, after struggling all day a rushing backt o the art center - with only 2 minuets to spare, I was happy to be awarded 2nd place and a purchase award! My painting is now in the permanent collection of the Art Station!

 Above is a photo of me with my painting, " A Day in the Park" 12 x 16 and my two awards. What wonderful conclusion to a rainy day.

My inspiration for the paint out. It was so rainy, I had to find a covered spot to paint from.

Summer travels and fall shows

My painting has taken a new direction this year and I'm happy to say, it was well received at my art shows. Above are a few of my favorites that found new homes. It's always a rewarding experience, but these, I'll miss. Time to get back in the studio!

SUMMER ON THE ROAD -  

 after spending 

much of the summer traveling, it's great to get back home and regroup. I had a wonderful time painting, learning,  making new friends and catching up with friends I only see once a year. I hit the upper Adirondacks in June and then Mystic CT, Mount Gretna PA, then on to Cary NC - and can you believe the weather was perfect?

Class party and new projects

Can't believe spring quarter is coming to an end! 

Rob made his savory gumbo for the last class. He makes it all from scratch and it's a real treat. It ended up turning into a real party and we all had a great time! I know it doesn't look like any painting is getting done, but there was a little progress tonight before the food came out.

Part of the fun in taking an ongoing class is getting to know everyone and having a little fun!

This is the first or my shabby-sheik painting racks.

It should hold at least 10 canvases up to 2" high.

I've limited my self to just one building project a quarter. Otherwise I'd never get any painting done! 

Over this  break I'm going to build storage / drying racks for the class. These will go in the kitchen and I'm hoping these will add enough storage space to accommodate everyone. And...well, if I get enough time, I'd really like to build a few more of my second generation studio tables. They've been a big hit in the classes and they save a lot of space as well.

It's come a long way since this summer. Now that the class rooms are finished, time to tackle the kitchen.

About time! I finally updated my art page!

It is amazing how long it can take sometimes to go from painting, completing a painting, photographing your paintings, uploading them to your computer....months later trying to remember what file they are in...... cropping images, and then finally getting them up on your website! Holy Cow! I have to come up with a more organized way. Well, it is a new year, so here's hoping! I have lot's of new paintings up in my Square Market. You can check them out by the link below. Let me know what you think.

Cheers! - Dawn

6 Days, 10 Palettes, 9 Tables Later....Studio's Almost Ready!

The bulk of the work is finished and I'm ready to start offering classes in my new studio space.
Despite all the thunder storms this week, I was able to finish my studio project. I set up a tent in the back yard to be able to keep building and then used the front porch for the finishing work, mainly the sanding and painting.
Classes start on September 23 and I needed furniture for the students, mainly tables to hold their supplies. I decided to build my own out of reclaimed wood to match the feel of my cottage styled studio in Midtown. I made each table a little different, all about the same height, but I played with the pattern of the wood and made a few full-sized tables as well. I want it to be inviting, a place that students can feel comfortable and creative! So here it is ...6 days, 10 palettes and 9 tables later.

I hope my classes love the new space !
