Looking forward to going to the art exhibit tomorrow at the Art League of Long Island. This show, " A Common Thread" has some great artists work including Harvey Dinnerstein who is a wonderful realistic painter that I studied with years ago at the National Academy of Art.
Will tell you more tomorrow.

Old Westbury Gardens

Yesterday, I taught a class at Old Westbury Gardens.

It was a children's "Autumn Still Life workshop." We worked with acrylic paints on watercolor paper. It was alot of fun and the kids really enjoyed learning about the different techniques and textures that can be created with acrylic paints.

The workshop was in the quaint, old barn studio which is not heated. It was FREEZING!!

The children didn't seem to mind it at all. They were so involved with creating their still life painting that was set up in front of a large window with a gorgeous view of the fall foliage.

It was a great day although it took me quite a while to warm up afterwards.

Hope we can do it again in the spring.
Let me know if you would like to join us. Maybe we can have an adult workshop also.

Plein Air Painting

Last week, I went out painting with two artist friends. They new a beautiful location on Mattitauck, Long Island. We pulled the car off to the side of the road and just started painting. It was nice to be outdoors except for the wind. It didn't stop for a moment and at times I felt like my French Julian easel was going to fly into the water. Of course this cannot happen since the easel is so heavy. My friends have lighter easels like the Open M box and Anderson easels but I still prefer the French Julian easel. It holds all your supplies and is more comfortable to use.
