A road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway took us through scenic Mendocino, California. I fell in love with the quaint architecture which later became the subject of a demonstration painting I did for the Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University. Later, in my home studio, I took artistic liberty and simplified the scene further by leaving only what I felt was absolutely necessary to capture the essence of the time and place. I hope you like my final interpretation of “Mendocino Moment.”

    Joyce, your paintings, from very ordinary scenes, transport me to a fairyland. I viewed the Northlight on line webinar today,which was excellent. I’ve heard about the thumbnail sketches from other teachers, but only now do I understand their importance. You paint not from the photo but from the thumbnail sketch and what a difference it makes. Without the photo, you let your imagination soar. I’ll be taking a second look at my photos with you in mind. Thank you for the inspiration.

    How can I purchase your DVDs?
