Also, in March, Brad Lorbach, incredible artist, teacher, and entrepreneur from Taos, NM, will be here in Eastern NC!  He will be teaching a class in color and brushwork. This oil painting workshop will educate artists in all phases of painting, using the still life format to do so. There will also be a free demo on Sunday evening for those who would like information on his Old Master's Maroger medium.  This is the medium that I now use exclusively.  The class is March 16, 17, 18 at Arts and Things, with the free demo on Sunday, March 15th. Contact Arts and Things for more information. Class size is limited and I will be there!

This is a piece that is coming soon as part of the exhibition and sale upstairs@Floyd's.
