Green & Red Peppers

In August was a busy month. I realized that I didn’t write blog.

I participate “Art in the Gardens” as a Previous Featured Artist at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg CA on Aug.4.

For two years I lived in San Diego, so I missed this event for two years. I shared the booth with Previous Featured Artists, who are my friends. We had a great time together again including our customers, friends and visitors. Thank you for whoever came.


I taught Watermixable Oil painting class on Aug. 11th and 12th at the Mendocino Art Center.

It was fabulous class.

They have great energy and enthusiasm for learning new.

They painted great paintings. Two of them were Art Teachers and one of them was a sculptor.

I learned from them as well.

Everybody has own life experience and nature, which show in our paintings. That makes all paintings unique.

I did watercolor painting demonstration at Village Art Supply, where I’m going to teach Watercolor class.

Audiences were great. Mostly people have experience of painting.

Then past president of WASCO (Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County), Ben Stanley came in and told me that he remembered me. Over 10 years ago I did watercolor demonstration for WASCO. Wow! He remembered me!


So my watercolor class information is here:
