Join me for 3 exciting days of painting in Sunny Florida! We will be inside the lovely Beach Arts Center (just a few blocks from the beach.) Get in on the Early Bird Special…only $450 through May 31st 2019!

“In All Her Glory” (NFS; Prints available) *a portion of the proceeds from print sales will be donated to “Friends of Notre Dame” rebuilding project.

I’m sure you were as shocked as I was upon seeing Notre Dame burning recently. We had visited Paris in 1997 on our 1st year anniversary. Tyler was quite intrigued with all of the gargoyles and spent (what seemed like hours) videotaping each detail of each gargoyle…and there were LOTS! (Did you know that the gargoyles were believed to ward off evil spirits, but are also water spouts that carry the rain away from the building?) As Tyler filmed,  I just sat by the Seine and sketched. After a while, we got hungry and walked over to a nearby cafe for lunch. Unbelievably, we both forgot to go inside the cathedral and didn’t even realize it until we got back home. I kicked myself for years for that!
Last July, we had an opportunity to revisit the Gothic structure, and this time went inside. I feel incredibly  blessed to have had the opportunity.
