"Where the Heart is"  11" x 15"
$295    watercolor and charcoal
My heart tugs toward for country life, since I was raised on a ranch in Montana.  Whenever I paint a country scene, I want to go home to my family ranch.  This painting started as a charcoal pour.  This is a fun process where you prepare the paper using charcoal powder, and you actually throw a big bucket of water on the paper to make the charcoal powder do it's magic.  Below is the beginning of this painting.  I'm teaching Abstract Landscapes at Dillman's Resort(4 day workshop in June 20 -- 23, 2016.) I will be demonstrating abstract landscapes on this Sunday, April 17th, at 3:30 at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins, MN 55343 (Suburb of Minneapolis). There will be many other demonstrations starting at 1:00. Come early and spend the day! This is a FREE event! 


  1. Great post. Thanks. And I love the painting.

  2. Love this painting. I am taking your class at Dillmans in June. I have a few questions regarding the supply list. The type of paper is listed but the size is not. Is it OK to bring many smaller size sheets instead of large ones, as you state we will be doing 3-4 quarter size paintings. Thanks, Cari
