September Painting Workshop in Beautiful Maine!

Lobster Buoys in a Tree
I am excited to return to Maine this September with the focus on just painting the beautiful scenery. Join me!  I am teaching a class called Watercolor Journaling.  Using watercolors and mixed-media, we will create beautiful journal pages!  Students will explore ways to make their travel journal interesting and reflective of their Maine experience.  The workshop is held near the quaint coastal village if Bass Harbor on Mount Desert Island.  If you are interested or want more information, please feel free to email me.  I also can give you some ideas of where to stay.
