Me, in Jesse Reno's class
Just back from my first time teaching and taking at in Portland, Oregon.
I had a wonderful time, teaching, taking workshops and seeing beautiful downtown Portland.

Student work ~ recycled circles
I taught two classes (and both were sold out, thank you!). Recycled Circles is always fun, because everyone's work turns out so different.

I took a workshop from Jesse Reno (that's my hand, we painted with our hands the first half of the class!)

Needless to say, this isn't my usual style of painting, but it was fun and freeing and I definitely will use some of what I learned in my sketchbook. 


  1. I know I was surprised!

    I love your fingers - that's a photo I'd blow up for my studio - beautiful!

  2. Your fingers are gorgeous! Janet is right, a poster of that photo would be wonderful.

  3. Sounds and looks like you had a blast! How cool to take a painting class from Jesse Reno. I'd love that too!

  4. you did have a great time didn't you/ Hax Your work and your students looks great.xx

  5. Ahhhh: love the fingahs!


  6. What a wonderful experience. Art & Soul gets such great reviews and Portland is one of the most beautiful cities around. Listened to your interview with Leslie--very enjoyable. Thanks so much for including it in your blog.
    best, nadia

  7. You don't usually paint that way but I would think it would be a blast to reconnect with ones inner child!!! Love that pic! Liz Kettle is a delight isn't she?? She is a good friend of mine! So glad that you will be teaching for Art and Soul again!!
