3 Abstracts in New York City! Love It

Just received this photo of my 3 abstracts hanging in Jeff and Lora's loft apartment above Union Square. They are part of "paper doll series", working abstractly from the figure. What does that mean? Working with the model at the Arts Student League, using the model to see abstractly and energetically to create this series. Using the fastest paint possible, black and white gesso, acrylic and pencil. The 3 paintings on the left are Lora's own beautiful paintings.

2011 Summer Workshop, Paint the San Juans

Join us this summer,
Paint the San Juan Islands!

Experience the beauty of San Juan Island while
Expanding painting skills.

Annie's Summer Plein Air painting workshops will cover the basics and nuances of working on location. Friday evening will be devoted to a demonstration and time for questions about materials and techniques. On Saturday and Sunday, artists will set up at different locations each day on San Juan Island.
Artists will sketch, thumbnail, and work to finish a small painting each day. Annie will go from easel to easel giving each artist personalized instruction on their particular view. Endless possibilities abound with San Juan Island's maritime and pastoral views. Workshop sites are one day by the sea, and another at old island farms.
Years of teaching drawing and painting combined with her love of painting her island home, makes Annie's workshops the perfect creative island experience.
