REMEMBER WHEN I was delivering a painting to Seattle for a secret
project? Now you know ... "Proud Patriot" 18x24" pastel is on the cover
of the 2016/2017 Dakota Art Pastels catalog! The painting itself is
hanging in their Mt. Vernon store. Thank you so much Craig Lemley of
The catalog is a work of art itself - beautifully
designed and full of all the materials you'll need to create more
I will be giving a workshop at the Dakota Art Center in
May 2016 so watch for details on that.
“The Beauty of Imperfection” Pastel Workshops with Jen Evenhus
We throw perfection out the window, giving us permission to use an impressionist abstract
style employing simplification, bold strokes, exaggeration, mark-making and
happy little accidents as we explore shapes, design, space and color in
these intense 3-day workshops with PSA Master Pastelist, Jen Evenhus.
Each workshop has its own "theme" or "focus" like “Finding Your Voice,"
"Less is More" and "Mood, Magic, Melody."
There will be demos, timed exercises, drawing, painting,
one-on-one coaching, group critiques, and more painting.
Emphasis is always on composition, value, and movement.
