A Busy Season Comes to an End

It's been quite a productive last few months in the realm of teaching and creating! We had Winter and Spring Sessions at the Naples Art Institute along with the many Artist Workshops: portraiture, figure drawing, sketchbook creation, botanicals and open studio. Much was learned and accomplished. Here is an array of visuals of the work:
