Free! Welcome Back Porch Painters!

Let’s have fun on my front porch

Bring your paints or needlework and your smiles!

Over the last two years I have invited friends to join me on my huge covered porch to paint, stitch and create. We relax, laugh, trade stories, make new friends, and sometimes get something done. I provide tables, chairs, and water. You bring your paints, projects and snacks. It’s that simple.

This year I’m stepping it up a notch by creating more space on my back patio … the Porch Painters have gotten very popular and I want to keep this going. This is a loose group (in more ways than one) and I can accommodate up to 10 people. So every Wednesday, from 1 to 4 beginning June 8th, we’ll gather casually and enjoy a few hours of creativity in the fresh air. You’ll be surrounded with beautiful flowers and porch plants and huge shade trees that might be inspiration for you to paint.

Occasionally, I will demonstrate the art of encaustic from my outdoor studio, adjacent to my porch. You might enjoy watching art being created with a propane torch and hot wax and maybe even give it a try yourself! You can also visit my indoor studio and main room gallery where you will see lots of examples of this unique art medium.

2022 DATES – Wednesdays from 1 to 4pm beginning June 8
