Webinar Coming Soon!

I am very excited to announce that coming in November I will be hosting a webinar Wildlife – Feathers, Fur & Eyes! Registration details will be coming soon! The webinar will included recorded video demonstrations on each step and technique I use to achieve a sense of realism in my wildlife and pet fused glass paintings.


The webinar will be approximately 3 hours in length (with a little break between segments) and include two PDF file projects with illustrated step by step instructions that will be accessed after attendance, supply list, and access to the replay on the webinar for 45 days. There will be ample opportunity for registrants to ask questions. Registration will be limited to 24 attendees per scheduled date.

Paula McCoy, owner of Colors for Earth will be a moderator in the live webinar and there will be a Colors for Earth color kit to complete both projects available on the CFE website.

The video tutorial will be available to persons unable to attend the webinar under the fused glass navigation tab on my blog. A hard copy (packaged two disk set) or download files and PDF documentation will be available to webinar attendees at a discounted price. The two full projects for this workshop and video tutorial are the Bald Eagle and Sumatran Tiger.

Santa Cruz, CA and Mt. Vernon, WA

I haven’t been very diligent in posting to my blog! It is here for a record of my journey as an artist and instructor but time always seems to slip away rather quickly!

poppyMy next trip this coming week is Bonny Doon Fused Glass Tools in Santa Cruz, CA for a three day workshop August 26th – 28th and then onward and upward (literally!) to Mt. Vernon, WA where I will teach a three day workshop at Carol Evans Art Studio. Students in both workshops will be learning techniques I use painting with Colors for Earth fired glass enamels.

The Passionate Poppy, Tiger Face and a poppy picture frame piece will be done at Laurie Spray’s studio and the Monarch Trio, Poppy tile and poppy picture frame will be done in the workshop at Carol Evans.Monarch-Trio-3

The trip? Well 25 hour drive to Santa Cruz followed by a 16 hour drive northbound to Mt. Vernon and then a 36 hour drive home back to Buda, TX. I am excited that I get to see more of the country and passing through 2 states I have not been through before; Idaho and Utah.

I can’t wait to take some photographs on my trip that will certainly become some great reference images for future projects and fused glass designs.

On the road…

Looking forward to the graphite drawing and Rolling River Rocks workshops at Milkweed Arts March 21-24th and 26-27th. Then on my way to Vegas for Glass Expo where I will be doing demo’s in the Colors for Earth / Screen It on booth #717. Directly from there I drive to Kensington, MD where I will be teaching two workshops at Weisser Glass.

Any video purchases made online after Monday, March 14th will ship after April 18th when I return home from this lengthy trip. Anyone attending Glass Expo in Vegas, I will have video tutorials available.


Graphite Drawing Workshop

hand-drawingDrawing in graphite has always been a passion. There is just something I find intriguing and challenging to create realistic and representational art using a simple value scale.

I will teach the tools and techniques that I have used for decades. Anyone can draw and learn to IF they desire to and practice. My style of teaching is very hands on demonstration as most artistic individuals do learn by seeing, not reading!

advertisement-for-drawing-classMy newest canvas and love is that of fused glass. I have worked for several months on techniques, firing schedules, and glass preparation options to implement the use of graphite drawing with fused glass. Graphite on glass will be day four of this workshop at Milkweed Arts March 21-24th, 2016. There is no better studio to launch graphite drawing on glass!

Milkweed Arts owner Warren Norgaard is dedicated to the arts and offering a full range of classes and workshops. Classes in fused glass, metals, fiber art, painting, drawing and more are offered in his studio, Milkweed Arts – Quality Art/Quality Education
