Open Life Drawing and Painting Sessions Every Week!
Come Join Us...
Life Drawing/Traditional Short Poses, Wednesdays 6:30 – 9:30
Long Pose/Portrait Painting, Thursdays 6:30 – 9:30
These are open sessions with no instruction.
STILL LIFE PAINTING / 2-DAY SESSION with optional instruction
These sessions will have a 2-day set up where the artists can leave their easel and paints. Instruction is available. I’m there to help with any advice or questions. We will talk about color, value, drawing, painting materials and technique. But more important, through still life, how to find your own unique artistic voice. Still life painting can be far more exciting and a means of expression than a dull classroom exercise. Or, if you prefer to just come and paint the still life with no instruction, that’s cool too!
Mondays & Tuesdays, 6:30 – 9:30
Fee: $15 per session
All levels welcome. Please email or call the studio for more info, directions and to reserve a spot. Space is limited.

Emily and I will have new paintings hanging in the main room at Travis Gallery this spring. I think hanging together will show how much we’ve influenced each other’s work, although the end results are miles apart. I love the way she applies paint. So free and exciting. Her colors are atmospheric and beautiful. Emily says that watching me paint the Bucks County landscape en plein-air has made her consider using her surroundings as a starting point for her abstracts. The design, colors and different seasons are endless sources of material for her. Check out the new work at Travis. 6089 Lower York Road, New Hope, PA.

Pink & Green • 20 x 24 • Oil on canvas
Emily (yes, another model named Emily!) was a great model. She always surprised me when she came to a session. This time she showed up with this cool green hat and pink hair. It's fun to paint profiles. There's something very graphic about them. I love the abstract shapes.

"Eden" • pastel on paper • 22 x 30
"Kira" • pastel on paper • 22 x 30
Here are some recent portraits I've been working on. Two pastel drawings and two paintings. These drawings tend to be on the tighter side - more precise, while the paintings have a looser feel. Part of my on-going quest to maintain a more spontaneous look in my painting while being accurate.
