Outdoor Draw & Paint Session at Como Park!


I will be at Como Park/Como Conservatory tomorrow, Saturday the 16th, at 9 a.m. until noon, to create some sketches and an oil painting on site. This will be mostly outdoors on the beautiful grounds; we may take sketch books and non-bulky materials indoors, but easels are not permitted inside the Conservatory itself.

This will be my first ever "Come as You Are" class opportunity. If you'd like to join me and learn how to choose a scene to draw or paint, how to create a thumbnail sketch before you begin, and have feedback throughout the process (as much or as little as you like), meet me near the Carousel at 9.

$20 for the class; bring your own favorite materials. Oils, acrylics, watercolors, dry media -- whatever you please. Hats and sunscreen highly recommended!

  1. That green pond is one of the most beautiful paintings I have seen all year. :-) It brings back happy memories of the farm in which I grew up and especially of this pond that washidden amongst a former quarry. I used to gaze into it and think up fantasy stories and reflect on life and all its meanings, whilst the sun shone upon it like gold streaks upon the surface before the day faded into night and the face of the moon would reflect in it like a great silver ball. What a happy memory that your painting inspired! :-D
