No matter were you live around the world, I think just about everyone loves the fall colors that Mother Nature presents us with at this point every year. Here in West Virginia we are especially blessed with this blanket of color and never tire of its beauty.
This painting is of a scene not too far from our home and has been a very popular subject with my students. I have taught it several times now and it is such fun to see how different painters put their own interpretation on the composition and the colors. Give it a try yourself!! If you need some instructions you can find those in my 'Books & Pattern Packets' section of this web site.
Our annual 'Homecoming Hues' Retreat finished a short time ago and it was another great year of education and entertainment for our wonderful group of painters. It is always a joy for Chuck and I to see all the returning friends and this year we had a good number of first time attendees joining us. We hope to see them back again next time!! Next year we will be hosting our 13th. annual event at a new location, with a slightly new name, and an expansion of teachers, classes and also an expansion on lodging possibilities. Check out all the details for the 2014 'Homecoming Hue Art Conference' with a click of the tab on the menu bar.
The same possibilities for education will be available next April with our 3rd. annual Art Quest Conference in Cherokee, North Carolina. Registrations have been heavy for many of the classes with a few nearly full at this point. There is still space available in all but two of the classes however so choose your favorites and get your registration in to join this very popular event. All the details on the 'Art Quest' tab right here on this web site.
If, like many others, you have become an advocate of 'Made in the USA' that would include our Kanvas Karriers for protecting your wet oil paintings, my Instructional Packets for painting in oils, 'Foliage and Beyond' and 'Cloud Study' technique workbooks and Chuck's hardwood frames. He is putting together a collection of new frames styles that will be available at our studio and at all the future trade shows we attend so be sure to check those out. Of course you can shop for additional frames on the 'Framing' link on this web site as well. You can call with your order or order on line at any time... we can usually ship within 48 hours.
