I am very excited to announce I am now showing at All Things Fresno Art Gallery in the Cultural Arts District at 1424 Fulton Street, next to Warnor’s Theatre in Fresno.

I will be demonstrating  painting a portrait on September 3rd 2015 from 5-8p.m on ArtHop night. This demonstration will feature the very beginning of starting the process of creating a portrait. I will interact with the public answering questions and explaining my personal approach as I delve into each step of the process. By explaining canvas choices, difference of media, texture, color, choosing models and the importance of lighting.

I will also be addressing the importance of museum quality tools, such as brushes, canvas, framing and of course paint. It is extremely important to purchase quality paint due to the fact that the color is more vibrant and true to nature which offers more depth and form. I will be going into more depth about this at the demonstration.

Fresno’s ArtHop is one of the most active and successful programs organized by the Fresno Arts Council. ArtHop occurs every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month. Art lovers and enthusiasts from all walks of life flock to downtown Fresno and the Tower District on the first Thursday of each month, and the rest of ArtHop venues in the Fresno metro areas on third Thursdays, to meet and greet with the artists and enjoy the reception and music. Museums, studios, galleries and other venues open their exhibitions to the public at 5:00 p.m. and run this free event until 8:00 p.m.
