Low in Oregon's High Desert, June 2022

My passion and practice are exploring the power of color to create light, space, mass, dynamic movement, and feeling. For those who wish instruction this will be our focus.

You're also welcome to come and simply paint!

My demonstrations will use gouache (my favorite plein air paint), but you’re welcome to bring your own medium favorite paints or medium, or get supplied from our optional gouache kit of paint, brushes and papers. We’ll have a suggested list of supplies closer to the trip.

This trip includes day-trips to amazing locations (local transpo provided), instruction, discussions, and box lunches.

We'll have ample time for relaxing, and time to discuss our work.
