Pier Breezes and Workshop Announcement

Available at Anderson Gallery

This pier in the village of St. Simons Island, GA is a favorite hang out spot for locals and tourists alike. At least once in every visit to the island, my family can be found walking out to the end with ice cream cones to watch the fishermen (and women) and to feel the cool ocean breeze. It's a family tradition! :) 

Workshop Announcement:

I am thrilled to be teaching another plein air workshop on the island next spring!
Come join me! Here is the information:

En Plein Air - Composing a Strong Landscape
May 20 - 22, 2013 
Monday-Wednesday, 9am-4pm 
Anderson Fine Art Gallery
St. Simons Island, GA

Workshop Description: 
Focus on good composition and the strategic placement of natural subjects found in the landscape. Learn to design pleasing, dynamic entrances and exits into your paintings, and practice composing "on the fly" in the plein air tradition. We will meet at different sites on the island, and each session will include a demo and a critique.
