Watercolor Artist Group takes on Charcoal

Branching out from their normal watercolor painting these 17 ladies took on charcoal. Many of them had not drawn with charcoal at all or many years ago. They took a chance and invited me to their morning meeting to instruct them in drawing the Canoe picture. From the start of the experience I felt a sense of peace around these wonderful women. They were all so inviting, complimentary, wise, and fun. Walking around the room checking on their drawings I was in awe by the creativity of these women. From adding a moon, detail of the rocks and trees, and replacing the canoe with sand hill cranes or a row boat. This was such an honor and am looking forward to doing this again. Thank you. ‪#‎letsgetdrawing‬ ‪#‎charcoalexpressions‬

Craftsman Table & Tap – Fence 3

The Fence 3 drawing is challenging and time consuming but the guests took on the challenge and their effort paid off. We had a wonderful time at The Craftsman Table & Tap last night. Not only were the guests fantastic, the room and staff at Craftsman Table & Tap made it even better. Thank you Jesse our server and bartender, Liz for giving me the opportunity to be welcomed into Middleton, and the guests for truly putting up with running late and taking on this drawing. Hope to see you soon. ‪#‎letsgetdrawing‬ ‪#‎charcoaldrawing‬ ‪#‎charcoalexpressions‬

Drawing with charcoal takes most of us back to high school. These drawing events take us out of the past and brings charcoal to the present day where our experiences guides us with even more creativity.
