This retreat has been such a success and so much fun, that we are anxious to do this again this year.  Cheri Miller Thurston (my partner in creativity) and Mo Garrity (our yoga instructor and personal chef) will be helping me out once again!  Couldn't do this without them.

Stay tuned for information on how to register -- coming soon!

3-Day Watercolor Workshop -- Durango, Colorado -- August 16, 17, 18, 2019

My annual Durango workshop is now being held at a friend's beautiful house/studio near Vallecito Lake.  She was gracious enough to host this for the last two years, and thankfully, wants to do it again!

The workshop will again be in August -- Friday, 8/16, through Sunday, 8/18.

WORKSHOP at the WINERY - Our Final Day

Our last day of the workshop was all about finishing the two projects we started on Tuesday and Wednesday -- Tiered Landscape Painting and Painting like Matisse.  

Everyone wasted no time in getting back to their paintings . . . 

Pat demonstrated adding another "tier" to the landscape painting

working on the negative shapes in the foreground

Sometimes it's helpful to paint upside down

At the end of the day, it was time to select some wine for us to take out onto the patio, where we would be sharing all our paintings . . . and what gorgeous paintings they turned out to be!














We wrapped up the workshop with a toast.  It was a great three days, 
with a wonderful group of painters.
