« The Gathering of Artisans, Asheville, NC | Main | NEW PAINTING FOR A CHRISTIAN COLLECTOR »


I just returned from a workshop that I held in Lancaster, OH (south of Columbus by about 25 miles) at a beautiful farm called Little Brook Meadows.  There were 14 of us, some familiar old friends, and some new faces - Jeff Risner, the head of the Ohio Plein Air Society was there - he even tried painting a portrait indoors!  The converted barn has a beautiful new floor, bathrooms and kitchen facilities, and a new pond out back.  Several of us also stayed in the beautiful 8 bedroom, 6 bath house.....The owners, the Ryckman family, hope to continue to upgrade the barn - this is my 2nd workshop there and it worked out beautifully!

Below are a few shots of the workshop on day 3, and a portrait demo from life that I did on Sunday.  "Bill Carson Portrait Demo", Oil on Linen Panel, 20"h x 16"w.  Actual painting time was about 2 hours......

More to come later on the workshop.........Michael

Thank you Michael for a wonderful workshop. You are a generous and gracious teacher and we are left with a wealth
of information to contemplate and incorporate into our individual work. We'll look forward to next year with great
anticipation. Thanks too, to the Ryckmans for sharing their wonderful facility with us - a perfectl place to have
a workshop. We are certainly grateful for the chance to learn from such a master painter, and have such a good time
doing it!!
