New Workshop in the Works

If you have been following my blog you know how much Photoshop plays a role in my art. I use it not only as a tool to compose studio artwork but also for digital collage and painting and to enhance and manipulate photos. I have been putting together some collage and mix media projects and workshops. Now since I posted my digital drawings I have had inquires about creating a course around this technique. Needless to say I’m very flattered and excited about it. So while I clear up all the other unfinished projects, my mind will be putting all the pieces together to launch this. If you think you may be interested, have a opinion or want to know more about it please feel free to email me. There will be no obligation or spamming if you do so. Thanks

Photoshopping Again

The need to use and learn more about my new camera prompted me to join Sheila Finkelstein’s photography group. Sheila’s workshop goes beyond photography. She uses it as a tool for insight and creativity. Being a visual artist and not a writer, I am using my images for their artistic possibilities. I used Photoshop CS2 to covert this photo I took of wood scrapes to a digital drawing. You may view more of these creations on my class Flicker site

Watercolor Slideshow

This month’s watercolor challenge for Cathy Johnson’s Alumni group was birds. I have been trying to create a slideshow of my grandchildren’s graduation and decided to create a slideshow of my bird watercolor painting to test of some of my options. You can view the results at

They've Graduated!

Graduation is over and it was quite an event. 750 graduates! I was very proud of my three grandchildren and moved by the whole experience. The only disappointment was my inexperience with my new camera and my vantage point in the arena. Bottom line, lousy photos! Now that it is all behind me I’m back to finishing all the remodeling, sorting, cleaning up home and yard.
Not much time for blogging, classes, online groups and art.
