Apple Plated

Red Apple and Classes


6x6"
oil on panel
$150.00 (Canadian funds)

This was a demo I did for my Tuesday night students.

Yes I have taken in a handful of students for the winter. They are a great bunch!
In the spring I will have three evenings set aside for classes. Check out the side of my blog for classes and updates.
All classes are based on how I approach my paintings so if you like dynamic color and bold strokes these classes might be for you!

Please let me know if you are interested as soon as possible as my space can only accommodate a very limited amount of people.

It's the cups turn to hide in this game of hide and seek. Will the marble find him?

Painting high reflective surfaces has got to be one of my favorite things to paint. These red high gloss cups are so much fun! Cappuccino tastes pretty good out of them too!
