Peony Painting with MAAC and Allerton House – 2015

I recently held a class for ~20 participants on peony painting in the garden of Allerton Park and Retreat Center in Monticello, IL. The Monticello Area Arts Council approached me about the event and I wasn’t sure about the setting and how it would go. I was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm and willingness of the painters. They seemed to have such a good time, from the inexperienced to those who painted without guidance. Quite a fun night!

Monticello, Illinois Reds of Christmas Illustration and Postcard

The Monticello Area Arts Council commissioned an illustration and final product postcard to be used as their participant handout during the downtown area’s Reds of Christmas event on Friday, November 28, 2014. The final product I provided was a 5×7 card made from my 11×17 “Wineglass” illustration. I was very pleased with how it turned out and the Arts Council loved it.
