Albert Handell workshop...long overdue!!!

"Trees"  Pastel by Albert Handell
In September, I had the privilege of attending a six-day pastel/oil workshop with Albert Handell.  Eighteen artists gathered each day to watch as Albert worked his magic.  Albert sold every painting he did at the workshop that week!  Although I was unable to participate in the on-location part of the workshop each day, I did paint at home and have included one of the paintings  in this post.  Bet'cha won't have any trouble figuring out which one it is!
Albert and me.  Yep, I bought it!

"North Park Saturday"  Pastel

Collage, Mel Grunau workshop
Brunswick Art Works recently offered two excellent workshops.  The first was a Charles Basham, plein air landscape workshop at North Park in Brunswick, followed the next week by a Mel Grunau collage workshop at the Brunswick Recreation Center.  Great fun!
