His studio is right over the Massachusetts border, in New Lebanon, New York.
Luckily, he shares his talent by teaching others watercolor techniques.
I love learning and observing all kinds of classes.
It's part of the joy of life, don't you think?
This summer I was privileged to sit in on one of Michael's classes.
Actually, it was the last class in a series he taught at the Lenox (Massachusetts) Community Center.
The paintings in this post were done by students in the beginners watercolor class!
I think they did a great job.
The art works were displayed for two weeks at the center after the class ended.
Just look at all the fabulous colors students used.
Imagine, these were the paintings of beginning watercolor artists!
The instructor did a great job of teaching others this painting technique.
Many thanks to Michael for allowing me to share all of this on my blog.
Below is one of Michael's paintings, depicting the Hancock Shaker Village. Some of his paintings as well as those of a few other artists, will be displayed at the village in coming weeks.
