"Dynasty Icon", oil on linen, 26x22
As I've mentioned in previous posts, I've been working on a body of work for the past year, surrounding horses.  My latest,  titled, "Dynasty Icon",  is not real, as you can see, but an icon from the "Tang Dynasty" (China, 618 - 907). 
If you've been following my work you'll know that I have come full-circle, returning to a familiar subject which enables me to explore paint while painting something that I love.
Happily, my studio has come alive with the stable of canvases lining the room in their various stages of completion.  My little piece of heaven.
Thanks for following!

There are still spots left in my upcoming"Painting the Still-Life, from Life" weekend workshop at Swinton's Art Supply & Instruction, April 6 & 7th, 2013.  See their website for details here.
In this challenging and fun workshop we'll explore designing and painting the still-life.
You'll paint a low-key still-life on the first day and on the second, a high-key still life, while exploring different palette possibilities and the fundamentals of painting.
While the painting demonstrations and instruction will be done in oil, acrylic painters are welcome.  Beginners (some experience) also welcome!
Come out and join me!  Please email me with any questions, I'd love to hear from you  ...
