Painting demonstration

I will be doing a painting demo from 12:00 – 4:00 on Saturday, January 25, at LaFontsee Galleries in Grand Rapids, MI. Here is a LINK TO THEIR WEBSITE, with the event information. Three other fantastic artists from LaFontsee will also be doing a demo, all of us at the same time at different stations. If you’re able to come, please make sure to introduce yourself to me! Below are some snapshots from a previous demo at LaFontsee.

 

Below are some of my favorite SOLD paintings from 2019. Thanks to all my supporters and collectors for making 2019 a great year!

Another Mackinac Island Demo Painting

During my 4-hour demo at LaFontsee, a number of the visiting artists who came during the second half wanted to see the beginning stages of the painting process they had missed. I was happy to oblige them, so the Mackinac Island scene made an appearance in one form or another on 3 different canvases! The photo above is the newly finished second one: “Mackinac Island Dock 2.”

Live Demo

In the studio

If you’d like to watch me wield these tools, I’ll be doing a live demo at LaFontsee Galleries on Dec. 8, from 12:00 – 4:00.

  • Three other LaFontsee artists will be demo-ing at the same time, so there will be much to see and absorb.
  • Also, a pop-up art boutique by six artists will be happening (jewelry, fiber arts, …).
  • And to top it off, in time for holiday shopping, LaFontsee will have small works available for sale by many of their artists, including yours truly.

Here’s a link to the Facebook Event.

If you are able to come, please make sure to say hi (and introduce yourself, if we’ve never met).

December will be here before we know it…YIKES!!
