From yesterday’s roving watercolor class on the Woonasquatucket River in Olneyville.
Yesterday we began the summer session of roving watercolor classes in North Providence. Once again I am impressed with my intrepid students and by the fact that we can all sit down to make a picture in a busy day. To go someplace new, brave the unexpected, figure out where I am in the park, even. After all that they are greeted with a combination architectural / water feature (gasp). I am amazed they don’t go running to sit down to a nice civilized lunch instead. Of all things, with so much to do, despite the traffic and being needed by family/people/groups, and a complicated bridge staring them in the face we sit down for a few minutes and paint.
I’ll be teaching a weekend painting workshop at a farm on Block Island this August. Demonstrations will be in oil but all media are welcome. Click Here for more information.

Having lunch with friends, tree tops around us and feeling as though I were up with the birds.
