I have created a public Facebook page for my art

I will be using the Facebook page to show paintings in stages as I work on them. Posts on this BLOG will expand to include to topics that require more than what can be covered in a short Facebook comment.

My wife Linda Volrath has a Facebook page for her art as well. You can follow what she is up to here.

Upcoming Workshop

I will be teaching a three day oil painting workshop April 18, 19, and 20, 2016. We will be using the controlled conditions of still life painting to work on problem solving that applies to all subjects. I will be painting two 4 hour demonstrations with the rest of the time being spent working together as you work on your painting. Participents should know the fundimentals of oil painting before taking this workshop. 

The workshop is being held at the Shenandoah Arts Council in Winchester Virginia. For more information contact Jaimianne at the Council. Here is a link to the councils notice.

Hope to see you there;
