A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
The really cool thing about being an artist is that I can leave my junk all over the house and just call it a "still life".
And guess what????
You can learn how to paint a still life...or how to creatively leave your junk around the house.

The drafting side measures 40" x 60"; the flat side 31" x 60" and also has a storage drawer which can hold several drawings. The table surface…Continue

I painted this at camp this past weekend. No running water yet; I used melted snow to clean my…Continue

I have started working with watercolors again, and I am enjoying every minute of it. I had forgotten how much I loved their luminous quality. Tomorrow I am doing a watercolor and mixed media demonstration for the YMCA Seniors group, and beginning in March I will be teaching Watercolors at the Y Arts Studio on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings.

I have always loved the beautiful old architecture of Downtown Syracuse.
There are so many unique buildings and styles; each a work of art.
