Madison Park Art Walk-September 9, 2016
I’m excited to be participating in the Madison Park Art Walk this year for the first time….nice and close to home. The party is happening this week on Friday Sept 9 from 5pm – 9pm throughout the Madison Park business district in Seattle on the shores of Lake Washington. This event is filled with ART, LIVE MUSIC, FOOD and FUN followed by movie shorts in the park hosted by IndieFlix with popcorn and refreshments served! The art shows will continue to be on display until September 25 so don’t worry if you can’t make it to the Friday event. My paintings will be exhibited at Home Street Bank, 4036 E Madison St, along with Barbara Dunshee’s whimsical ceramic sculptures.
Start your evening at the Starbucks reception, 4000 E Madison Street, where each artist has one piece on display. My new orchid painting, above, may greet you there. Amazing treats were served last year at Starbucks and other locations, so bring your appetite.
Come see the new tulip paintings from my Scott Milo Gallery show in Anacortes last spring during the Tulip Festival. This is a chance to get up close and personal views of these paintings of luminous spring blooms posted here and many more.

Bellevue College Watercolor Student’s Art
I haven’t shown off the work of my students for awhile. I teach my painting process to students at Bellevue College in a class now called “From Photo to Watercolor Illustration”. It’s an 8 week class on Monday nights for 3.5 hours. We have a great time practicing watercolor techniques and applying them strategically to a painting of the student’s choice on a half sheet of good watercolor paper (about 20″ x 14″). Beginners are welcome, or join us to keep your painting practice going! My next class starts September 12. Register here by September 6. Enjoy these paintings from this past year. Aren’t they amazing?
Here are some paintings from the summer 2015 class. The last 4 are not quite finished but interesting to see the process in development. Such variety keeps me on my toes as I coach them!
I have lots of earlier posts of work from these classes on my illustration website blog. You can see most of those posts on this link which shows many student paintings as well as some teaching posts of my painting process. Scroll away, and consider signing up for one of my classes this fall or next spring! You’ll get set up and equipped to explore, plan and execute a watercolor painting of whatever subjects you choose!
