I've been buzzing ever since I got the word that I will be presenting two programs at the next IAPS convention! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share with my fellow pastelists. I have attended the last three conventions and have learned so much from the demos and workshops I took. It is always so much fun to spend a few days immersed in all things pastels. I highly recommend planning to attend this next convention. Here are some details:
What: International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS) 11th Biennial Convention
When: June 2-7 2015
Where: Albuquerque, NM at the Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town
I will be presenting two programs at the convention. Here are the preliminary details with more information to come:
- a 3 hour seminar: An Artist's Guide to Blogging all about starting & maintaining an art blog
- a 3 hour demo: Wildflowers in the Landscape. This will be a demo packed full of my favorite tips and techniques for creating authentic and natural looking flowers in the landscape...both close up and distant views.
I will be sharing more details about both programs but just wanted to share my news and give you a sneak peak at my process for painting Queen Anne's Lace. My demo will include a Queen Annes Lace painting!
There is plenty of time to start planning and saving for a trip to Albuquerque in 2015! IAPS is an experience you will not want to miss!
