Whidbey Pies Cafe

Sketching at the farm on a sunny and windy day.  

This week I am taking/monitoring a class with Duane Keiser, who is know for his inventive selling of artwork on the internet.  Duane teaches art at University of Richmond and Randolph Macon College in Virginia. 
 Each day is a new challenge to open our brain and he won't tell us what each day will bring until that day.  So far we've had a Fairfield  Porter challenge and a palette knife challenge.  Yesterday, I painted from the palette knife painting, bringing it up to a real painting.  Today is a mystery, yet to be solved.  
It will be sad to say goodbye to Duane because he has made the lessons fun, and eye-opening and showed us some tremendous artwork that he has painted.  Check out his website and be prepared to be blown away. 

This afternoon, I will be sketching and greeting at the Garden Tour. The house is Turmeric and I can't wait to paint that color!  Pat
