Thanks to Everyone Who Stopped by for Art-A-Whirl

I want to thank all the folks who showed up at Flying Horse Gallery this Friday through Sunday for the Art-A-Whirl event. 

We had a great time, enjoyed meeting new people, enjoyed talking to old friends and past students who stopped by…and we did a lot of eating.

Thanks to Charlie Maguire (one of our hosts) we had grilled hot dogs every day (high quality, expertly prepared), and Kathy Koutsky brought meats and cheeses and breads and salads. There was great root beer, bottled water, and wine. There was so much food it was incredible. Linda Koutsky, our other host was tireless in helping folks. It just couldn't have been more fun. I cannot remember laughing so much in quite a long time.

The weather was great—a little overcast all three days, followed by long stretches of sun. It was good weather for jumping from gallery to gallery. We hope you all stayed dry and avoided any of the brief bits of rain.

If you are an artist friend who had your own Art-A-Whirl show going on, I'm sorry I couldn't join you; and I look forward to connecting at another time. I hope you had a great weekend.

    I enjoyed your gallery at Linda’s Flying Horse Studio, especially the fellow above. Glad you had a good weekend. Art A Whirl it was.

    Karen, it was great fun to see you on Friday! And fun that you and Marsha ended up there at the same time. I’m looking forward to seeing you both at lunch in the near future.

    I hope you saw a lot of cool stuff on your other stops. I look forward to hearing all about it. The drawback to showing is that you’re anchored in one place the whole weekend.

    Hi Roz,

    I love all your videos and blog posts. Any chance you’ll video a Color Theory Class, so the rest of us far away folks get a chance to learn a few of your color tricks of the trade?

    Thanks of much for everything!

    Lesli, The plan is that if I can get enough students to justify the time spent making videos (there’s the prep, filming, and editing) then we’ll keep doing classes. We just don’t have enough information yet to say definitively that I’ll be doing more and more classes.

    But if the next two or three classes I release (which have already been shot and which I’m editing) prove popular then you can look for Color Theory online, probably some in the fall of 2016.

    All my classes are interactive with me right now and I want to keep it that way, so I have to schedule time not only to make the class, but to be in the class with the students. Color theory is going to be interesting because it’s a lot of in-class interaction and discussion which I don’t think will translate in the same way, so I’m thinking how I can do it and capture the fun (for me) of the live class. And consequently the “easier” to prepare classes are getting finished first.

    Thanks for the interest and I hope we can work together in the future.

    It’s fun to travel around and visit fellow artists when they’re “stuck” in one place. I love doing that. Everyone should do that.
