Ready for a Fall or Winter Plein Air Painting Getaway? Paint Sedona Workshops are Filling!

(Email recipients of this newsletter won't see the video above; but here is the direct link to it.)

Summer's done, fall is  here, and, as the Starks of Winterfell say in George R. R. Martin's wonderful book, A Game of Thrones: "Winter is coming."  Now is the time to think of escaping to warmer climes before it is too late!

Weeks are filling for my Paint Sedona plein air painting workshops in Sedona.  For the 2013/2014 season, I have many weeks available.  Many of these are for intermediate to advanced painters, but I have a few "all level" weeks as well.  I have added a few special topic weeks, such as Hiking to Paint, Exploring the Verde Valley and Large-Format Painting.  These are always fun and really spice up the season.

If you've not taken one of my Paint Sedona workshops before, you are in for a treat.  Sedona lies at the base of the Mogollon Rim, just 30 miles south of Flagstaff, Arizona, in the middle of Red Rock Country.  Although Sedona gets a fair number of tourists - the enticements are hot air balloon rides, jeep tours, wilderness hiking, vortex-seeking and, of course, fine art - we always seek out quiet, beautiful spots.  Many of our painting locations feature red rock vistas, intimate creek scenes, woods of sycamore and cottonwood and much more.  My workshops are small - typically no more than four students - so there's plenty of time for personal attention.  Because the workshops are only half-days (we stop at 1), you can spend the rest of the day exploring.  Visit some of the fine art galleries, relax in a spa, enjoy a meal at some of the wonderful restaurants - or, if you are so inclined, paint more!

Remember:  Winter is coming.
