Katherine's Studio Hosts My Workshop

"I Use Matisse's Method.  Matisse Said, 'I Have No Method.'"

I am teaching a small group of Portland area artists in Katherine van Schoonhoven's beautiful studio.  Kvan lives in Battleground, WA, and she blogs at Art and Music. We share a love for abstraction in the landscape, and she posts about the workshop here.

It took some courage to begin a fresh work for my demo, which was of a subject viewed in the Columbia Gorge on my drive over from eastern Washington.  Luckily, I was pleased with the results.  Whew.

Wish I could have been there, too, Casey - I'm sure it was a great experience for the participants and I'll bet you enjoyed it as well. Looking forward to seeing the demo painting.

Thank you ,Casey! It was a fun workshop and a bit of a stretch for me to actually simplify in that last painting.
I'll be following along with your blog.

I may have some photos around here of the demo, but it will be a couple of days before I have one of the finished work - thanks for comments, Cindy, Brian, Celeste, and Sam!!!
