Over the  past few months I have been studying Degas and honing my figure drawing skills. Degas’ ballerinas proved to be the perfect muse! I’ve dedicated myself to sketching the human form daily and the work is so rewarding.

Here is the preview video for the class!

In this very special class, you will not only learn about the wondrous world of Degas but you will gain new skills in figure drawing, composition and color theory, while expanding your pastel and mixed media expertise.

Whether you are a beginner or an seasoned artist, the techniques and style of Degas will inspire and delight you. His use of color is extraordinary and his meticulous dedication to his art is truly motivating. From my research, I have gleaned some exciting ways for us to study his work and put some of his methods into our own practice.

I would love to have you in class!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Much love and gratitude,

Hints of Spring by Suzanne Kasler

After living in Portland for eight years, you come to realize that, at times, January and February flirt with Spring like conditions…but, like always, the rain has resumed. As the gray closes in, I found myself drawn to the lovely interiors created by Suzanne Kasler.

I really love the soft, pastel hues in these rooms…reminding me of the first blooms of Spring…

So soothing to the eye…I could look at her rooms all day – imagine living in one! I wish!

To view her amazing portfolio of work check out her site.

Hope you are seeing signs of Spring where you are!
