Fire Dancers



After the workshop Carmen and I went to dinner, we notice out of the corner of our eye Fire Dancers at the end of Noyo Harbor it was magical. There was a mother that was spinning her fire pots while her 10 year old son waved a blue glow stick.
The abstracted photos of light are titled Mother & Child.

Atmospheric Landscapes Mendocino September 2009

We had wonderful time in Mendocino, a very small class of 8 students which was very nice and personal. We worked on Atmospheric landscapes and simplifying the landscape into dramatic paintings. (Here is a painting that one of my students did while in the class.)

Trinity Workshop


Amazing - this little community in Northern California has such special energy, the students were wonderful, they came from all over these mountains, to this small community center. On one of my adventures with my hostess Evelyn Ward who teaches watercolor herself in Lewiston / Weaverville she brought me to this Buddhist temple that I found very healing.
The trout fishing is wonderful in this area and I was so tempted to throw in a line.
