REMEMBER WHEN I was delivering a painting to Seattle for a secret project? Now you know ... "Proud Patriot" 18x24" pastel is on the cover of the 2016/2017 Dakota Art Pastels catalog! The painting itself is hanging in their Mt. Vernon store. Thank you so much Craig Lemley of Dakota Pastels!

The catalog is a work of art itself - beautifully designed and full of all the materials you'll need to create more masterpieces!

I will be giving a workshop at the Dakota Art Center in May 2016 so watch for details on that.

2016 Workshops are Shaping Up!

“The Beauty of Imperfection”
Pastel Workshops with Jen Evenhus

We throw perfection out the window, giving us permission to use an impressionist abstract
style employing simplification, bold strokes, exaggeration, mark-making and
happy little accidents as we explore shapes, design, space and color in
these intense 3-day workshops with PSA Master Pastelist, Jen Evenhus.
Each workshop has its own "theme" or "focus" like “Finding Your Voice,"
"Less is More" and "Mood, Magic, Melody." 

There will be demos, timed exercises, drawing, painting,
one-on-one coaching, group critiques, and more painting.
Emphasis is always on composition, value, and movement.
We won’t create pretty pictures -
we’ll create dynamic, eye-stopping masterpieces!
