Mobile Museum of Art, in partnership with Mobile County Commission, announces it’s first pop-up exhibition for Government Plaza. Artists Rene Culler, Colleen Comer, Susan Downing-White, Susan Fitzsimmons, J Kuhns-Conlon, and April Livingston are featured and the exhibit is open to the public during business hours through the end of December 2018.
For those who couldn’t make the first workshop, this will be a repeat at my studio, part of the Central Arts Collective at Central Presbyterian, 1260 Dauphin Street, Mobile AL 36604
Once fall arrives on the coast, we see subtle changes in color and light. Explore these changes with me in a two-day oil painting workshop. In this class, you’ll learn techniques used by Dutch landscape painters of the 17th century. Because these painters mainly worked without benefit of artificial light, they needed to be efficient and make the most of fleeting daylight. The expedited working method you’ll learn can be adapted to plein air painting as well. We will use non-solvent-based mediums and cleaning fluids, such as spike oil of lavender and walnut oil. You’ll leave with a completed sky painting by the end of the second day.
Beginners are welcome. Class is limited to six students.
If you’ve taken one of my classes in the past, this will be a slightly different approach to painting skies. The class will combine art appreciation, some geeky info about skies and materials, as well as technique.
Materials, instructional handouts, and a list of supplies used in the class are included in the class fee. Bring your own lunch and a smock or apron. Fee is $ 275.
Monday and Tuesday, November 5 & 6, 9 am - 4 pm, with a break for lunch.

Join me and the other artists at Central Artists Collective for a Christmas Studio Open House and a Maker’s Craft Market. I will have small oils available for sale, as well as prints and notecards. At the day’s end I’ll give away a print—just stop by to register, visit and enjoy a bit of holiday cheer.
