IAPS, painting with Alan Flattmann "There is no H in Whine!"

1 day workshops are great fun, high pressure, less than ideal painting conditions (too hot, convention center lighting (can lights 30 feet up in the ceiling). In this case, new support paper that is WAY more coarse than I was used to...vine charcoal drawing first complete with shading...working from provided photos from a place you've not been.

This is not too bad, considering. And it can still be finessed at home. Below is the slideshow of his painting:

Here are a few pics from Friday's class...another Flattman, where we made our own support surfaces and speckled pastels. Very messy, so no photos! Then some relaxation time...and a little dinner.

Alan is known for his cityscapes with hazy glows
and for his landscapes
Kippy and Randy...she has her computer open, Randy is checking out a new friend, Jeff's, camera.

Kippy's sister Robyn and Kippy

View from the balcony. After some libation, Robyn and I helped Kippy with her last items before her mammoth 3 hour seminar on 'Color Harmony, or what happens when your painting takes a dirt road' (or something like that!
Tonight is the president's cottontail party, then the banquet.

I guess you're in Santa Fe? Are you at the Hacienda?

Nope. still in albuquerque...banquet tonight. We were sitting at the head tables. AND I still didn't get an award! bummer. But with Kippy doing her football stadium whistle, and me doing my loud comments, we kept the crowd on their toes.

Duane Wakeman is a doll, so is Anita (louise) West. Randy is out with some scoundrells. Interesting table mix.

Funn times...I'm snug as a bug in my rug...

I used to live in North Albuquerque off Juan Tabo and Montgomery at the foot of the Sandia mountains.

"Still didn't get award" are you funny? This is your first international show so getting accepted is a great award! Congratulations baby!

Envy all the places you have lived...I've only lived in Arkansas!

We are in Santa Fe now. Took a great 2 hour talk/demo from Jimmy Wright, picked up a few last minute purchases from the trade show. We are all POOPED!
