    It’s official: I’ll be giving another “Expressions in Paint” workshop, this coming May! It will be at the Helen Day Art Center, in Stowe, Vermont… Any excuse to go back to my beloved Vermont, and spend time there! If you aren’t familiar with the region, let me tell you how beautiful it is: commanding mountains (ski slopes, in the winter months), surrounded by rivers, cow-filled pastures, wooden barns, and dotted with old, New England villages. It’s a privilege for me to be asked back to HDAC.

    If you’re interested in signing up for my workshop, be sure to sign up early, to ensure yourself a place, as the last couple of workshops I gave there, sold out.
