New Work in Great Southwest Gallery for the Holidays

Morning in the Plaza 8x6 oil

I delivered these two new paintings to Great Southwest Gallery today - just in time for the holidays!  Both of these feature scenes from the famous Tlaqueupaque Village, which is where Great Southwest is located.   Please stop in and take a look.  Ask anybody; everybody knows where Tlaquepaque is.  Great Southwest is in Patio de las Campañas.

Also, I want to remind everyone that I have a series of pastel-only classes coming in January.  These are on Saturdays (January 9, 16 and 23) from 9-2 and are for all levels.  The first class will be on Pastel Basics; the second, on Color for the Pastel Painter; and the third, Plein Air Basics for the Pastel Painter.  These classes are fully independent.  That is, you can take any one of them or all of them.  Cost is $75 per class with pre-registration required.  Classes will be held at Gandolfo Studios in West Sedona, Arizona.  For details, please contact me at or visit

Don't forget about my regular Paint Sedona workshops!  These will be happening all winter, each week.  Workshops run Tuesday-Friday, 9-1 each day.  Because the workshop size is limited to four, this will give you plenty of personal attention.  I'll demonstrate each day with a lecture, and you'll have the rest of the time to paint.  I'll go from easel to easel offering help.  For details, please visit
