Excited to announce the dates of my workshops and retreat this year:

More details will follow -- and, registration is not yet open for any of these -- but, I did want to let you all know the dates.

Painted Prism Art Retreat -- in Estes Park, Colorado -- July 20 - 24, 2017

This was such a success and so much fun, that we are doing this again this year.  Cheri Miller Thurston (my partner in creativity) and Mo Garrity (our yoga instructor and caterer) will be helping me out once again!

This will begin on Thursday afternoon, July 20th, and end on Monday morning, July 24th.

Workshop at the Winery -- Wolf Creek Winery, Norton, Ohio -- August 16 - 18, 2017

This year, the workshop will be expanded to three days!  So, it will be held in the winery's Great Room, on Wednesday, 8/16, Thursday, 8/17, & Friday, 8/18.  We will end each day in the winery's Tasting Room!

Watercolor Workshop -- Durango, Colorado -- September 15 - 17, 2017

Since I will not have a house and studio in Durango in September (we are moving to Littleton), this workshop will now be held at a friend's beautiful house/studio near Vallecito Lake.

This year, the workshop will be one day shorter, as well, so it will be a 3-day workshop -- Friday, 9/15 through Sunday, 9/17.

Watch for more details!

YOU are such a creative person in regards to the natural attraction that is evident in your paintings.Good luck for your coming workshop.
