Last Wednesday, Richard Stephens gave me the opportunity to teach one session of his annual Garland County Library watercolor beginners class, as he was unavailable that day. I decided to do a 1-hour demo (although it's difficult for me to paint that fast, and also to paint vertically) and then to have the students try their hand at the same painting. I did the accompanying painting Early Snow in the class. The students had plenty of questions, and seemed to enjoy the demo and the painting exercise. I enjoyed it, too.

The Springs Magazine is a monthly guide to arts, entertainment, and activities in Hot Springs, Arkansas. My painting Fall Firetrees was chosen for the cover of the November, 2009 issue. Thanks to publisher/editor Sonja Lash for choosing my painting and to Richard Stephens Commercial Art for the cover design.
