Upcoming Workshops - Lima, Ohio

May 11-12, 2012: OHIO, Lima.  FULL.  Price: $150  Contact: Ruth Ann Sturgill,  419-331-4999,

This will be my second time teaching in Lima.  Lima has a beautiful rural setting with plenty of barns and farmscapes.  It's also got a neat downtown and is headquarters for Kewpee's Hamburgers.  Why do I mention Kewpee's?  As a bit of historic Americana, it was one of the first fast-food restaurants to  offer curbside service with its heyday before World War II.  There are only five Kewpee's left, but it's a fun place to eat.

This will be a workshop for oil only, and it is now full.  Because the workshop runs only two days, we'll head quickly out into the field and get started.  I'll start with a full demonstration to show you how to capture the moment quickly and efficiently but without sacrificing mood and magic.  We'll talk about abstracting and simplifying the landscape; how to make the most use of value and color; and how to finish a painting.  Next, you'll get to paint!  I'll go from easel to easel offering help.  Time permitting, we'll do critiques at the end of the day.

I hope you'll join us!
