Ready, set, go :O)

Time for Nature Journaling!!!!!  This year we are going to do a few locations.  We will begin next Wednesday on June 22nd.  The first 2-4 weeks we will meet at Vickie’s beautiful  home in Bedford Hills.  She has been so gracious to offer her lovely grounds to us for drawing, painting, color pencil, pen and ink, or pastel…choose your medium 🙂 Her property has so much to offer, such a beautiful place to spend long slow mornings…we will have so many inspiring subjects; formal gardens, a reflecting pool, amazing trees and shady passages from one garden to the other.

I may also offer a plein air painting demonstration for you to observe and possibly consider expanding your own experience to working outside in the future 🙂  Still not sure I have the courage to have you all looking over my shoulder 😉

Please email me for directions to Vickie’s home before Tuesday of next week at

Sessions will be on Wednesdays from 10-1pm. Rain date on Thursdays. $15 per session.

Thank you Vickie!!!!!!!!!!!  Cant wait to spend time in your enchanted garden ❤️

It’s happening!!!!!!


The foundation for the conservatory has begun!  It has been 10 years of fundraisers, donations and efforts by Lasdon to bring a conservatory to our beautiful park. The photo  looks small but it’s not…it’s going to be so beautiful and it sits perfectly into it’s setting.  Every class I teach at Lasdon Arboretum helps to bring this dream come true….so thanks to all the students that have come to my classes over the years, you have helped make this come true with a percentage of your fees going to building fund for this wonderful structure.
