I have been teaching Painting Spring Flowers in Watercolor to 3 groups of students at Alumni Hall in Haverhill, NH. I have 36 students in all, such a huge response that we had to schedule an extra class to accomodate all of them.

I will also be offering classes in June on Tuesdays from 1-3 and 5:30-7:30. The 1-3 class will be Painting Floral Still Life in Watercolor, and the 5:30 class be be Landscape Painting in Watercolor.

Next Saturday I will be presenting a workshop called Business Skills for Artists in Colebrook, NH from 1-3 PM. My friend and wildlife watercolorist Jeanette Fournier will be a guest speaker.

On Saturday, May 28, I will be teaching a Littleton Studio School workshop called Outdoor Sketchbook Workshop at the Rocks Estate. We will spend the morning from 10-12 at the Rocks Estate in Bethlehem, NH, have a picnic lunch there, then go The Adair, a country inn in a lovely setting with gardens and woods. We will end at 3 PM.

Last night we hung my paintings and my daughter's (Felicity Lingle) illustrations at the Cold Mountain Cafe in Bethlehem, NH. My paintings are abstract acrylics that I've been working on for the past 8 months or so, and they are inspired by a workshop I took with Flora Bowley at Squam Art Workshops in Holderness, NH last September. Felicity's new works were motivated by her experience living with a rare disease called Neurofibromatosis Type 2, which has caused her to become blind in one eye and deaf in both ears.

I will be offering more classes and workshops in watercolor, oils, collage and bookbinding next fall. I also want to have Studio Parties in my home, where people can come and try a new medium, have some wine and cheese and socialize for a few hours. Contact me if you are interested.
