Ending my teaching classes for the Holidays… I always seem to have extra paint…
I then see an opportunity to teach a final class on re-thinking your concept of what color shadows are…
Yes, shadows are dark… but thery are made up of all colors.

Sometimes you just have to fly and be free…

Thanks for viewing my Art…

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work
