I'm packing my pastels and sleeping bag - for a 5-day pastel plein air workshop with Bill Cone. Bill's full time job is an artist at Pixar Studios. But he is a fantastic pastellist on the side! See his art on his blog: http://billcone.blogspot.com . This workshop is taking place at the San Francisco State University Extension Campus in the Sierra Buttes area of the Sierra Nevadas in Northern California (sort of near Sierra City). The campus is a camp - complete with tents and someone cooks for us at the camp dining room! I don't know if we get cell service there. And I don't know if they have wifi for us artists. So, again, I will post my experience when I get back. See ya then!
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
