#DoorCounty… #PleinAir happens a lot here. This is my contribution.

Plein Air paintings happen a lot here in Door County, WI. I’m in Sister Bay and this was my view of the bay this morning.

Plein Air has begun. 2 days of my work as my students work.

Painting out of doors has always been a fun approach… And challenging one because I choose to go watercolor. Two works, two days… Enjoy.

Friends on the Square.

Best to the ladies I drew with at Friends on the Square in Elkhorn, WI tonight. Waiting for Birk to get haircut, I took some time.e to chat up life and plans with the barista and her friend. This is my drawing from that time.

#NewWork for my #AP #StudioArt

With the year ending, and my 19 years (I’m still giving them my 100% – and SUMMER SCHOOL with Plein Air Art), I have created a final work for the AP Kids. Titled Eleven Concentrations and One Breadth it is a work using the works of the 12 AP kids. I have truly enjoyed the time with each of them and I wish all of the art students (and all the rest of my students) well as they continue to move forward in their career. Keep in touch.

#Hamilton in #Chicago

The Windy City… As a family we had a great time in Chicago. Saw Hamilton, ate at the Italian Village, Starbucks of course. The highlight was the conversation and time together. Here is my sketch of the stage from the show. Brooke is the proud owner of the work now. Lovely little 7 year old (perhaps) that sat next to me in the Balcony for the show.

New Work for the WAEA YAM VP Award at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center… Youth Art Month in WI.

Soup and Art, Art and Soup… Donations to the food pantry

Based on my last count, I had 45 artworks (plus a few that didn’t get resolved) made over the past 4 days during my high school lunch period by many of my art students and students who were NOT art students of mine. All of these artworks will get wrapped around a can of soup and then donated to the local Waterford, WI food pantry for those in need. The images below are my contributions.

Soup Can Art Continues…

“Dear Campbell’s Soup and the Andy Warhol Foundation,

My art club and myself have created a small edition of artworks that we’re wrapping around cans of condensed soup. After having studied the work of Warhol, we chose to use the inspiration of the soup can and 1) create individual works and 2) donate all the art and soup to a local food pantry as the holiday season draws close. If you are looking to help out those who are in need, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Here are some of our cans and the outstanding group that created them. Thanks!

This is a Test. This is Only a Test

Yesterday I went through the effort to update my blog / website and put a few more options in the mix. Through that, I broke the internet. This is a test for myself to see if my website is up and running or if I am only seeing a site that is in the cache of my computer. Thanks for giving your time to this silly little note.

Here is a drawing for your enjoyment.

A day away, tree up, and a small watercolor.

It is good to take a day away sometimes. Water is off to the outside spigots, kitchen dishes are done and put away, Christmas tree is up (Birk is leaving it alone), and I took a day to visit a space I’ve never been. Thanks John for the conversation and guided tour. A small painting came from the day as well. The Poor From the Just – a lot of negative space in the top part but, the fold makes up for it later.
