Upcoming Classes and Workshops

Sorry, I have no picture posts today. I did a preliminary value sketch of a garden scene for my next pastel, but time flew by, I had my Christmas present massage at the Spa, and then we had to pack up the pets (the bunnies and birdies), clean the house up and drive back home to Reno. Funny, it was snowing in Reno when we got there. But not very much. NOTHING like Truckee. So, I thought I'd just get myself all hyped up, talking about my upcoming classes and workshops. In March, Kim Lordier ( is giving a one-day class in Redwood City, California. And the next two days, another pastellist (Terri Ford - is giving a two-day workshop in the same vicinity. I get to stay at my Mom's house nearby and attend the classes with my girlfriend from that area. We grew up on the same street, went to kindergarten all the way up to highschool together. We used to color in our colorbooks together as little girls. And here we are now - in our 50's, and we will be "coloring" together again! Cracks me up. Next, in May, I am going to the IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies - biannual convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am sooooo excited. I asked my husband why we can't go there for a medical meeting for him....and...per my wish, a flyer came in the mail advertising a CME (Continuing Medical Education) course called Wilderness Medicine - one hour's drive from the art convention. While he is learning about viper, spider, and scorpion bites, I can take an all-day workshop with Lorenzo Chavez , and watch a demonstration by Michael Chesley Johnson !
