This weeklong workshop will have you thinking on your feet.  Working primarily from observation and using objects as our jumping off point, each day will start with quick thumbnail sketches and innovative exercises.  We’ll then move into fast, loose works that push the conventions of the object presented in paint.  We’ll explore strategies that move an idea from its initial dynamic impulse to a flesh and blood painting.  Class time will be focused on careful looking and light-handed painting, using oil paint’s unparalleled ability to express the tangible, the slippery, and the implied. Come, jump in feet first, change up your painting habits, and see what can be done in a week.
