My first steps into teaching watercolor workshops has been so rewarding and enjoyable; I am definitely going to continue to offer them and have quite a few planned and scheduled workshops for 2023.
At the Caldwell Lake George Library, my workshop schedule for 2023 so far is as follows:
Saturday, February 18, 10am-noon
Saturday, March 4, 10am- noon
Tuesday, April 4, 10am - noon
Tuesday, May 2, 10am-noon
Tuesday, June 6, 10am-noon
Registration is directly through the library. You can call them at 518-668-2528 to sign up. The library is located at 336 Canada St., Lake George, NY
More workshops are in the works to happen at a new location in downtown Glens Falls, can't wait to announce some exciting news about this!
Each year, the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council Gallery transforms into a festive holiday shop, full of unique gifts of fine art and hand made crafts by area artists and artisans. The Holiday Shop opens Friday, November 18 with a reception from 5-7pm (LARAC members get 15% off any purchases that evening) and runs to December 24. Hours are Monday-Saturday, 10am-4pm, Thursdays until 6pm. The folks at LARAC have planned some fun special shopping nights coming up in December.
This year, I'll be offering a larger selection of original paintings, both framed and unframed, along with art prints of some of my most recent works. I decided to dig into my archives and pull out some oldies but goodies to add to the mix of unframed selections. A few are from the early 2000s, which seems like a lifetime ago, doesn't it? The little Goose gouache painting has been sitting in my flat files for years because I cannibalized the frame it was in for another painting. It's actually a sweet little painting, won an award the year I created it - 2003! But it's time for Goose to fly to a new home.
And I'll have a few brand new watercolors, just recently painted en plein air in my woods, all framed up and ready to be given as gifts or added to your art collection.
The holiday season always brings many exhibit opportunities, especially for small works, perfect for gift-giving. I've got a super-busy exhibit schedule coming up with paintings in at least 8 group shows throughout the region and in Vermont as well.

My seascape Pemaquid Pine has been juried into the Vermont Watercolor Society's 2022 Fall Awards Show. The exhibit runs October 23-December 16 at the Gallery at Mad River Valley Arts, 5031 Main Street, Waitsfield, Vermont, with an opening reception on Sunday, October 23, 3-5pm.
I am so honored (and somewhat amazed) to be included in this show - only 30 paintings were selected for the exhibit by selection juror Andy Evanson, an internationally known watercolor painter whose work I greatly admire.
Looking forward to the drive up in mid-October to deliver my work, should be beautiful peak foliage at that time so I'll have to take some great painting reference photos for future works.
This is my first time participating in this signature fundraising event for the Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA), an annual art sale that celebrates both the agricultural heritage and stunning landscapes of the Upper Hudson Valley.
***Happy to update that after the live exhibit opening on October 8/9, five out of my six paintings have sold so far. My remaining painting in the sale, along with many available works by 60 other artists can be viewed and purchased online through to the end of October at www.LandscapesforLandsake.com
