Come Paint with me in Italy!

Join me for a fun filled watercolor painting adventure in Orvieto, Italy, May 2016!  I will be teaching The Colors of Umbria: Keeping a Watercolor Journal.  You will create a visual diary of watercolor painting, journaling and mixed media as you slow down and savor your time in Italy.
I am offer more online classes this year with Artful Gathering Online Retreat.  Registration is now open!  You can paint along beside me from the comfort of your own home.  Creating texture, colorful whites, and how to get a range of values are just a few of the techniques I will cover in this workshop.  Here is an example of one of the paintings we painted in 2015.  The DVD is now available for purchase:

Looking for Inspiration

Hi Guys, I am in Maine, in the fog, enjoying family vacation and the beautiful scenery.  The fog has rolled in and it has been pouring down rain.  So it is a good day to play board games and catch up on computer stuff.  I have been organizing my upcoming fun classes at Art Unraveled starting in just 1 week!  Here are a few photos I wanted to share with you.  I love traveling to new places and getting inspiration for fun watercolor paintings.  What kinds of things do you take photos of for painting inspiration?  Please share what inspires you...
I hope you are all enjoying your summer!
