Suddenly the days are moving so quickly…the clocks change this weekend, the leaves are flying and Thanksgiving is on it’s way 🙂
We will be having a Student Show at the North Salem Library during the month of December. For those of you who want to participate please bring your work to class the week before Thanksgiving break. 🙂 I hope each of you will bring 1 or 2 paintings ready to hang.

Summer has been good…lots of painting….time at The Cape with Andrew and the dogs. Andrew did lots of gardening this summer and last night we ate our own Delicatta Squash from the garden 🙂 Now Fall is here and time for classes :O) Looking forward to seeing you all!
This last week I created a new website for my artwork. Paintings, Works on Paper and Prints are all available now on http://www.lauragould.art Please go and visit…hope you like it :’)
This website will now be for updates and all things that pertain to classes and workshops..and all things Barking Dog Studio.
Kitchawan is beckoning. We will be going to the farm on Wednesday mornings this summer from July 22nd thru August 26th, meeting from 9:30-12:30. That gives us 6 lovely weeks of drawing at the farm 🙂 This year I will be offering accordion books. Please let me know if you want one and I will have it made up for you. Accordion books will be $10.00. We will discuss possible ways to create a story through page layouts and how to have a finished book of your summer at the farm. You are welcome to make your own accordion book or draw in your journals or sketch pads…..as always the goal is to enjoy yourselves. Choose your own medium….micron pens, watercolor, color pencils, pastels whatever you enjoy.
Cost will be $75.00 for six classes or $15.00 individual classes (pay as you go).
Contact me at email@example.com if you want an accordion book for you or if you have any questions.
The house will be opened on May 16th during the Plant Sale. If you would like to have some of you work on display please bring me your framed piece with proper wire hanger this coming week. Deadline for drop-off is May 13th. 1-3 pieces per student 🙂
As many of my students know I stopped using sable brushes long ago. I began to question how the sable hair was acquired and never received a satisfactory answer. I became uncomfortable with the product. I found the new synthetic watercolor brushes to handle beautifully so I happily stopped purchasing any animal hair brushes of any sort.
Below is a great link about he fur trade and Kolinsky Sable brushes….why they are getting hard to find and why we should consider alternative brushes that give a wonderful effect without effecting wildlife. :O)
I will be offering 5 sessions from June-August. We will meet every other Tuesday from 9am to Noon beginning on June 11th and ending on August 6th. We can sketch the farm as it grows through the season….from the early plantings of June to the full blooms of August. Kitchawan Farm is a working flower and CSA vegetable farm we will be sketching alongside farmers and gardeners =o)
The end of August we will have an art show of our drawings on the farm. The show will be opened to your family, friends and to friends of Kitchawan. Drawings will be priced modestly $10-25.00 dollars. Half of the proceeds will go to support Kitchewan Farm.
If you want to join us at the farm send $125.00 to reserve your space. This payment will guarantee your place in each class. There is a limited amount of space, registration will close on June 1st. People who want to pay on a class by class basis will need to email the day before to make sure there is room available. Drop in cost will be $30.00 per class. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
