STUDIO WALTZ October 9, 2010

Once again I will be painting en plein air for STUDIO WALTZ. It's tomorrow (Saturday Oct. 9) from 9:00 to 5:00. You can find me near the Pinellas Trail and Main St. in downtown Dunedin. Please stop by and say hi!


I painted this still-life as a demonstation for my Pastel Painting class at the Pasco Arts Center. The Center is in a really neat old cracker house in Holiday FL right behind the Centennial Library. The classes are held in what used to be the upstairs bedrooms of the house. Downstairs is a gallery and gift shop space, and in the basement is the pottery studio. It's got a nice artsy charm. Here's the website if you want to check it out: www.pascoart.org

Like most all art/cultural arenas around here, funding has been drastically cut from county budgets for the Arts Council and I was just told they are surviving only because of the money made from the art classes. The library was almost closed down last month because of budget cuts, but luckily that decision has been reversed - for the time being. We've been hit really hard by the recession around here. Sad to see businesses and people faltering.
