And in February, Mindy Lacefield.

“My name is Mindy Lacefield and I have been creating art full-time since 2008. I adore dolls from the 70’s and 80’s (especially strawberry shortcake!) and I continue to be inspired by drawings and collections from my childhood of the 80’s.  I strive to capture that young-at-heart 8 year old that was fearless and passionate about life and am so happy I can live my dream of painting for a living.”

We have her sweet samples in the studio if you want to come by and check them out in person.

Portraits with Mindy Lacefield
11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

“Join me as I take you through the process of painting a portrait. The portrait can be something created from your imagination or from a photo for inspiration. We will layer and create lots of texture using mediums and paper. I’ll show you how to use color in the face to create depth and dimension. We will slowly build up color creating luminous layers working back and forth until she ready to shine!”

Paint Your Dreams with Mindy Lacefield
12:00 PM – 6:00 PM

“The other night I had this dream that I painted a unicorn and then got on him and flew away. I felt like a super-hero because of the magical, creative energy within myself. I hope to foster that same divine, magical energy in each of you. We have this powerful freedom to create and fly to mystical places. We can paint our dreams into reality. I hope you’ll take this journey with me creating from a place of child-like wonder. We will give ourselves permission to play and not worry what the adults think. We will tap into our 8 year old selves because in reality we have never changed.

We will play and get our hands messy in paint. My instruction is very intuitive with short break-out demos so that you can have plenty of time to play. I’ll show you specifics like how I paint faces and a couple different ways that you can pose your girl whether she be sitting on a cupcake or riding a unicorn. Let’s paint our own magic!”



And finally in February, Annie O’Brien Gonzales, author of our current book club selection “Bold Expressive Painting

You also might recognize her work from the cover of “Cloth, Paper, Scissors” recently.

Annie studied painting and art history at Oregon State University. She previously had an academic career in the health sciences teaching, doing research, writing and developing educattional curriculum. Proficient in oil, acrylic, and mixed media, she is a colorist who creates expressive images inspired by nature. She teaches painting workshops at Ghost Ranch, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and other US and International venues. Her paintings have appeared in numerous shows and art magazines and are collected in private and museum collections. Her first book titled ”Bold Expressive Painting: Painting Techniques for Still Lifes, Florals and Landscapes in Mixed Media” was published by North Light Books in 2016 and her second book will be released in Fall, 2017.

Annie O’Brien Gonzalez-Expressive Mixed Media Florals
11:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Let go of realism and embrace your personal, expressive style while painting beautiful florals in acrylic/mixed media. Paint with vibrant color and innovative compositions. Artists at any level (even beginners!) will learn innovative techniques in a relaxed setting. Techniques taught include: unique underpaintings, creative color, making the most of value, and incorporating mixed media.

In this workshop you will learn about personalizing your still life paintings through expressive choices. I will bring a variety of mixed media materials and tools for you to try out in your paintings.
