Post Workshop High - Thanks to my courageous students!

The second of my two summer workshops titled: Courage Vs. Confidence is now complete. I'm always so impressed with how my students are willing to dive into uncharted territory. Even when it gets uncomfortable, even when the results aren't always what they had hoped for, they forge ahead and stay curious, and by the end of the day walk away with rich and juicy paintings!

Here are a few examples of brushstroke demos I did to show how movement and presence can yield big and bold mark-making.

Also, some images from the workshop and our fabulous views of the mountains.
