"SPRING RENEWAL” – ART ESCAPE

It’s time for my seasonal Art Escape in my backyard studio, so let’s celebrate spring together with some creating and socializing! We’ll be painting abstracts on 10 x 10” wood panels, similar to the one shown here, and you’ll be able to choose from several color palettes for your artwork. The process will be a simplified version of how I paint my own abstracts, so don’t worry if you’re not an experienced painter! This intimate evening for six is not just about creating, but also about “renewing” our creative spirits and connecting with one another in an inspirational atmosphere. At the end of the escape, you will go home with a beautiful piece of art and a full heart. Go to my Art Escape page for more details & to register.

Workshop

PAINTING & FRAMING WORKSHOP

This workshop includes two creative projects in one fun night! I’m going to teach you how to make the trendy wooden dowel picture frame (shown here) AND paint two modern striped abstracts (one multi-colored and one ombré) to hang inside it! The frames will be pre-assembled, but I’ll give a tutorial and you choose the wood stain color and leather strap. For the artwork, you will be able to choose from several popular color palettes for both 11x14 pieces. The great thing about this workshop is that you will not only learn how to make the frame, but I’ll give you a list of materials so you can make more at home! And if you don’t, then you can always switch out the artwork anytime you feel like a change. Please come join me for an evening of painting, building and socializing in the beautiful and inspiring atmospheres of Mint Studio & MRH Interiors, where you can create, sip wine and shop at the same time...a perfect night out! And bring a friend! Click on the links below for more details & to register.

My piece (shown here), “You Belong Among the Wildflowers”, will make its debut at this exhibit as the first in my 2018 “Connected” Series. I’m super excited to continue working on this new series. It’s a different approach for me, so I’m enjoying the process and discoveries it brings. Please come by for the opening, enjoy a glass or two of wine and wander the exhibit with me! If you can’t make it to the opening, the show will be up from February 17th to March 17th.
