Happy New Year!

Happy New Year one and all!

I love the New Year's holiday. It's fun to ring in the new year with friends, and it's a great chance to think about what I've learned and what I want to do in the next year. As always, resolution number one is to learn to paint better. And there are so many ways to do that, the foremost being to paint as often as possible. Thank you daily painters for spurring me on.

Workshops are also high on my list, both attending and teaching them, which I did for the first time last year. Also a first last year, was to assist in hosting a workshop. This year I'm taking the next step and setting up a workshop to be taught by one of my favorites, Liz Wiltzen. Many of you will remember Liz's 100 in 100 project last summer, where she painted 100 plein air landscapes in 100 days. Liz will teach this three day plein air landscape workshop (think daily painting), August 19-21, in South Freeport, ME. Liz and I will post more details later, but if you'd like to be on the mailing list for the workshop, let me know (my email address is in my profile or make a comment). It's going to be really fun!


  1. I would love to try to come- please let me know!
    Also- I have that book by John Carlson! It was a discard at the library where I work and I snagged it- I will be sure to give it a closer look!

  2. Bobbi,
    Wonderful way to learn and share in this art world...I am interested in more info on the workshop. Have a wonderful happy new year.

  3. Happy New Year Bobbi! Love your trees--especially the maple. Please keep me posted about the workshop.
