Up coming workshop with Bruce Greene


The week of April 19th I will be attending a Workshop with Cowboy Artist Bruce Greene. This is a juried workshop offered by Scottsdale Artist School, and promises to be a great time for learning. This week, the SAS is hosting several of the Cowboy Artists as instructors. Harley Brown, John Coleman, Mehl Lawson, Oreland Joe and R.S. Riddick will also be teaching workshops. The week will really start on Sunday with a Reception for CAA Instructors, SAS Board members and registered CAA students. It will be a great opportunity to meet these artists that I admire.
The workshop with Bruce will involve painting both horse and human models. I am pleased to be the host for the Equine Model. Bruce's top pick is my Palomino Quarter horse, Adobe. I have spent the last couple of weeks getting him used to umbrellas, being tied up, and being closely scrutinized. (For a horse that had surgery/chemo on his nose, sometimes he isn't too sure about that). I'm sure when he realizes that everyone want to portray him in all his beauty, he will quickly get used to the paparazzi!

Awesome Karen! Scottsdale Artist School is great; I had a wonderful experience there several years ago when Sam Savitt taught a workshop. Hope you and Adobe have fun!

Thank you Lynn, I'm sure we will have a great time. I can tell you right now, the other horses are going to be jealous that he is getting all the attention!

Lynn, wonderful "About" page. I especially liked the part when you mentioned that horses do not pose!

Your blog page header is exciting! I am looking forward to your blog at the end of the workshop. I want to see Adobe's images from the class.

Thank you Hannah, painting horses from life really cases me to live in the moment! I can't wait to write a post about the workshop. It has been such a busy week, that changing my Banner is the only thing I have had time to do. I'm glad you like it!
