I am often asked what makes me choose one site over another and how I choose what I will paint each day. The answer is simple. When I go out to sketch I am looking for a centre of interest for my painting—something that will anchor the composition. Today it was easy to find. Enough said.

    I recognize that, I think. The PCYC, oui?

    Ha! We all need an anchor in our lives!

    Shari I love your work and would love to take a class when one might be somewhat closer to me. Have you thought of teaching an online class??

    • Leslie, where are you located? I have been asked to teach an online class but it just seems very complicated to organize.

        I’m in Rhode Island Shari. Would love to attend your Portland Workshop with Marc, but the timing is not right.

      • Rhode Island is very beautiful but I’ve never visited. I guess you weren’t able to see the video from Paris either because of copyright laws. That’s too bad. If you can get a group together I can always arrange a workshop in your area. Also, Montreal is not that far. Closer than Portland, anyway. I have been thinking of holding another workshop in Montreal in August.

        Could not view the video — disappointed. Perhaps we could drum up interest for a workshop in Boston — great city to sketch and paint. Thanks for friending me on facebook. Have a great weekend and keep your art coming ; )

      • A workshop in Boston would be great. I have family there and in fact I will be there next weekend. Hope to get some sketching in too.

    Oh yes, a workshop in August in Montreal would be fabulous — yeah! I love your boat Shari 😉
