Hi ya'll,

I’m already getting excited about 2009 and seeing what we’ll paint this year, aren't you?

I’ve got three things happening soon I thought you might want to know about:
1. As some of you know, I do an online painting show on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. at www.ustream.tv/channel/susancarlin . Last Tuesday I started a pastel portrait of a little one year old boy. This coming Tuesday, December 30, I’ll be continuing to work on that painting. Last Tuesday’s recordings (2) are at that link above, if you’d like to see them.

2. I’m doing the demo for the Central Texas Pastel Society on Saturday morning, January 17 at the Windberg Art Center. The demo is free to all, and non-members are welcome. I’ll be demonstrating from 10:30 - Noon, then giving a Mini-Workshop on painting the figure in an interior setting from 1:00 -4:00 p.m. The cost of the workshop is $35. We’ll be using a photographic reference I’ll provide. The workshop will be open to non-members if space is available. There’ll be space for up to 20 participants, with members getting first shot. Easels are provided. Let me know if you want to come and I’ll send you a supply list.

For more information contact cntxpastel@aol.com . Meeting from 9:30 to Noon at the Windberg Art Center in Georgetown.
Directions: From Georgetown/Round Rock: Take IH 35 North and take the Walberg/972 Exit 268. Continue North on the 2-way feeder road for about 2 miles until you reach the Windberg Art School on the right.

3. I’m giving a two-day portrait workshop for artists who work in either pastel or oil February 17-18, (Tuesday and Wednesday) at the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, TX (5 minutes from Kerrville) $230. for non-members. Modeling fee is included. We’ll work from photographic references the first day and from the model on the second day. If you’ve wanted to work on seeing and painting values a bit better, I’ll be making that an emphasis during this workshop.

I hope to “see” you Tuesday on my online broadcast and perhaps in person at the Central Texas Pastel Society demo and at the workshop at HCAF.
Paint happy, Ya’ll!

Hi Susan,

I caught some of your painting of the baby -- wonderful. How terrific that you are doing all of these exciting events. You are great.

Happy painting to you -- it feels exciting to be heading into a new year. Thanks for all of your inspiration in this one.

Take care,
