Montana Workshop 2006

July 2006 - Wildlife Artist Workshop
After a wonderful 11 days in Montana it is tough finding my way back to the real world. The weather was beautiful as we spent time in Glacier National Park. Everything was still lush and green and the mountains and waterfalls afforded us beautiful landscape photos.
Participating in an intensive program of the Complete Wildlife Artist Workshop at the Triple D Game Farm in Kalispel was a rewarding experience. Studying with three national wildlife artists gave us mountains of information and techniques plus the fun of meeting great artists and instructors. Susan Labouri, Terry Isaac and Rock Newcomb and the owners and trainers for the Triple D Game Farm were outstanding in providing everything we needed to enjoy a very worth while adventure in the field of wildlife art and photography. Returning with a certificate of participation, an 8 x 12 color photo of the group and instructors, 600 plus wildlife and landscape photos to download, edit, and use to create new paintings, I will be reaping the rewards of this trip for a long time.

Terry Isaac Workshop

February 2006 - Emerald Art Center, Springfield, Oregon National Wildlife Artist, Terry Isaac Advanced Acrylic WildlifeWorkshop This was Terry's second workshop at the art center. He is an excellent Instructor and artist.



Jim Daly Workshop

September 2005 – Emerald Art Center, Springfield, Oregon International Artist Jim Daly presented a wonderful four day workshop on portrait and still life oil painting. We sketched and painted from live model, Shauna Drake. We felt privileged to learn from Jim… a fine artist and instructor.

Timothy C. Tyler Workshop July 2005 – Bend, Oregon
Attended a portrait workshop with Timothy C. Tyler From Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

We sketched and painted from live models like the man in this top photo. I had great compassion for those who sat still to model for us. The five day workshop was very rewarding and lots of fun.
