I'm a guest in Amy Miller's art room!

 Student teacher Nicole McCarthy from Mansfield University was ready to introduce a lesson involving textures - hence I was invited to show and demonstrate my "textured paintings." It felt good to be back in an artroom!  The class was very attentive and had some new ideas for me to try. Thanks for being such a great group - you gotta have ART! 
Above is the white masonite board where I demonstrated how I make my textures. I used the orange and yellow piece (right hand side) to demonstrate how I color my artwork. Below is the finished product:

New work - reminder about reception this Friday

My reception at the Deane Center in Wellsboro is this Friday evening, October 11, 2012. I'll be there at 6 o'clock and will demonstrate my methods and techniques beginning at 7 pm. The reception is free and open to the public. The new painting above is similar to a couple of the pieces in the show.

Fun with new wine labels

 Christine at Sheldrake Point Winery supplied me with some of the winery's labels. I've finished these five pieces in anticipation of the exhibition that I will hang at their Seneca Lake Tasting Room in mid January. I will display my "usual" pieces, too.

Student work - Young Artist Experience Camp

 Three small pieces (a learning exercise) done by the students who ranged in age from 13 to 17.

Eight pieces either 8.5" by 12" or 11" by 14" which are some of my standard sizes. 

 Jenna, a former elementary ART student of mine, taught the drawing class at the camp. Here she is with her HS ART teacher James at the student show at the end of camp.

The culminating display of the Young Artists' Experience Camp

I had the pleasure of teaching my textured "paintings" to a small group of high school age students.  Gayle Hill, former college student of mine, started this camp 5 years ago as her masters degree project. The young artists stay in a dorm for the week at Mansfield University. They choose 3 classes to fill their day and work in the sudios of Allen Hall, the arts building on campus.

I made a short video of the Exhibit that was presented to parents and others:
