Paris or Bust !


The Paris Seminar
I am really excited to announce  with a handful of other Artists I have been selected to walk in the footsteps of my heroes. We would travel to Paris  where we will copy in museums, learn from curators and educators in the field, and paint together and study pictorial composition and humanities, with the goal of reaching the next level of mastery in their work. We would be staying and studying at the Grand Chamiere Atelier. The Seminar would run from August 27th – September 3rd.

To fund the trip Sean Foster and Vanessa Rothe have coordinated two shows one in Laguna Beach California at the Laguna Beach College of Art and Design  April 8th and the other in New York at the historical Salmagundi Club. April 28th. The cost is of the  7 day trip is approximately $4250.00.

To raise the money I will be showing “Black Kimono” 30×17 $4800.00 at the Laguna Beach Exhibition and “Me and Lucy” $5500.00 24×18 at the Salmagundi Club Exhibition
