" A Perfect Day" Dawn Kinney Martin  24 x 60 oil on canvas
Special Abstract Workshop by Lauren Adams this Saturday 10 - 3 
An abstract painting can evoke mood or suggest specific reference, but it can also be about painting itself.  Whether you desire to work in abstraction from nature, or purely non-representationally, you will learn to trust your intuition while exploring color and composition, and find your creative edge by pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone.

May 20 - 22 Palette Knife and Plein Air

Painting at Tallulah Gorge at our last trip to Parker Ranch

May 20 - 22 No Stress Plein Air at the Parker Ranch in Clayton GA

Stay together, paint together. The Parker Ranch  in Clayton Ga is a cozy gathering place. The owners, Becky and Paula have hosted my plein workshops several times and they always out do themselves to make sure everyone is comfortable.

Learn to capture the outdoor with a limited color palette and the palette knife. Working from the landscape is such a great way to improve your paintings, but it can be overwhelming when just starting out. In this class, I'll help you with tips and tricks to setting up, how to find your focus, and get started. Using a limited palette will help you with color mixing and creating harmony in your paintings.  I love the energy working with a palette knife brings to my paintings. An added bonus - no cleaning your brushes!! You will learn different ways to use the knife to get your desired effect.

The Parker Ranch

The Parker Ranch is a laid back loge built in 1907 as an Atlanta family summer home in Clayton GA. It has 6 rooms all with private baths. Some are double occupancy - two beds - so you can share rooms  if you'd like, and one cabin. Clayton is just under 2 hours from Atlanta, world away. The Lodge is about one mile from town with good restaurants and lots of charm.

Room arrange should be made through Becky at the Parker Lodge
