Painting Salons (Workshops): Painting salons are held at my studio. It’s a night of eating, drinking and painting. You bring your own small canvas and if you have brushes, bring them or borrow mine. I’ll supply the paint and give a brief demo of an interesting base/background to get your painting started – I’ll demonstrate techniques like textured, oxidized or brilliant metallic finishes. BYOB and bring a snack to share. Sometimes musicians will even drop by. If you’re an introvert but in need of some company, come and hang out on the couch, knit, write or converse and see what folks are painting.
