Take your watercolor paintings to the next level. This 3 day watercolor workshop at Sunny Point on Keuka Lake will focus on glazing (working in layers) to achieve more luminescence and depth in your watercolor paintings. In addition to teaching techniques, I will cover planning the steps of your paintings, which is especially important in watercolor. Open to adults with some prior art experience, although all levels of watercolor painters are welcome. A seasonal property of the Arts Center, Sunny Point is located at 868 East Lake Rd, Dundee, NY. $150/$180 non-member of ACYC. Please contact the Arts Center directly to register for this workshop. Call 315-536-8226 or email email@example.com.
(This class is almost over. See below for my 3 day workshop this summer on Keuka Lake!)
Shake off the winter blues and learn or improve watercolor skills using glazing and other techniques. The class will be held Tuesdays from 1:30 pm – 4 pm at the Irondequoit Library, located at 1290 Titus Avenue. Class starts on Tuesday, January 22 and runs for 6 weeks ending on March 5.
The cost is $180 and does not include materials. A materials list will be sent to you once you are registered. To sign up, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the contact section on this site.
I will be one of the artists taking part in the Canandaigua Holiday Artist Showcase on the first of December. My host is Lesley Shakespeare-Brogan at her Hope in Art Studio located behind Main Street at 144 Mill Street. I hope you will stop in to see my art as well as the other artists featured that day. I will have archival fine art prints and note cards as well as some original art. The event runs from 10 to 4 and there will be lots of artists throughout the town. Hope to see you there!
I have had two paintings accepted into the Real. Small. exhibit in Canandaigua. No paintings are larger than 8”x 10” in size and as the name implies, the art is realistic. I rarely paint that small but am so happy to be included in what is sure to be a wonderful collection of art for sale just in time for the holidays.
Interested in learning or honing watercolor techniques? I'll be teaching a workshop August 16 & 17 on beautiful Keuka Lake.

The focus will be learning about painting in layers to achieve inner glow and more volume than a single pass of paint. It is open to beginners through intermediate artists. $140 members, $168 not-yet-members. Please register at at The Arts Center of Yates County at 315-536-8226.

Orazio Salati Gallery Solo Show
I currently have a solo show at the beautiful Orazio Salati Gallery in Binghamton, NY, through May. Gallery Hours: Saturdays 11 - 3 PM and by appointment.
Although most of my paintings are connected with nature, I am also drawn to paint old machines. I'm fascinated by the fact that these huge metal machines are no longer of use and yet the soft, seemingly-fragile, natural world seems to find a way to continue on. In this show I have just 4 larger works of different machines—mining, logging, a steam engine from a train and a huge machine factory pulley — contrasted with many smaller florals and other growing things. Every year, without fail, they find a way to grow again.
