REVIEWS
It was excellent. The class made me so aware of realizing just how much beauty there is in the depth perception of the city scape and landscape all around me. As I was driving about after the class I could not take my eye off of all shapes and angles. Simon explained to me how to use a few techniques to create arches, focal points and properly begin with drawing buildings and structures.

It was nice meeting Samantha, she gave me a few options as we sat and got acquainted. She gave me freedom to sketch what ever. I opted to draw several settings around the part. I was challenged to press myself in a couple of directions. If this is offered again I'd go. I would like to see a few more participants, that would be a great way for folks to learn, challenge, get to know a diverse community.

Watercolor, A4 watercolor paper. This watercolor painting was created with exploring new abstract techniques in mind. I enjoy exploring and adding a little abstract to my paintings. I use mostly Daniel Smith watercolors they have a nice richness to their colors that I love.

Title or Location: Beaver Dam
This painting was done over the course of like 2 years. I never thought I would revisit it or complete it at all. But I guess it was inspired by an alien landscape and I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could build a dam. I think that the cool palette I used is otherworldly and beautiful. The Sun is going down and the Moon is coming up, giving it a sense of transition.

I became interested in an artist (Iris Scott) that does finger-paintings. It really intrigued me. I studied her technique and tried my hand at it. This painting is the first-finger-painting I attempted. I?ve done several since. Painting is acrylic on stretched canvas.

Title or Location: Tiny Fawn Makes a Wish
I created this drawing of a tiny fawn using watercolor brush pens and fountain pens. It is meant to convey a whimsical atmosphere, as well as the hopeful nature of wishing for a beautiful future. I have always been deeply inspired by the works of Vincent Van Gogh. The background swirls were inspired by of the depth and beauty he captured in things that many others overlooked, something I strive to do with my art as well.

Title or Location: "Lianne Marie"
When I was at home in early 2020, I wanted to learn how to create colored pencil portraits, so I started searching for photos of close friends to use (with their permission). My friend Lianne Marie's face is always so wonderfully expressive, and since her hair had been dyed such jewel-bright colors, I thought she'd be the perfect first study. I laid down a base of alcohol markers for her hair, and then the rest of the piece was done with layers (and layers and layers) of wax-based colored pencil

My new painting In the Midst Of the Golden Sea, oil on panel, 9x12. This is the wheat field I'm driving by to work every day. This year I really wanted to capture it before it's harvested. That tree in the middle is like a guardian watching over the gold It was getting close to sunset time, so the light was especially warm, resting on the yellow-golden fields, reflecting red on the background trees, perfectly contrasting the blue skies. It was such a harmony in colors, that I couldn't resist, an

Title or Location: Golden Hour on the Tower
One of our favorite places to watch the sunset is in front of this tower at Nokomis Beach. This painting started as a small watercolor plein air sketch. I really enjoyed it and wanted to do a larger painting in oil of that magical moment when there are just a few fleeting seconds of light left. The light changes dramatically, so I used a photograph as a reference to bring this painting to life.
