We are pleased to announce that another artist has scheduled a workshop here at Painted Views Ranch.
Barbara Haviland will be teaching a three day workshop on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
October 8th, 9th and 10th, 2015.
This will be a workshop devoted to still life painting.
Barbara Haviland has been creating fine art for most of her life. She is an accomplished artist, painting mostly in oils, in bold rich colors that express her enthusiasm for painting. She is mostly self-taught but has enjoyed many workshops with nationally known artists.
Barbara makes her own worlds with her favorite tools: a brush and now a palette knife. Barbara says “It is like reading a book: I can ago anywhere. I get so absorbed with my creating that time passes and is gone before I know it. I am very passionate with my art. My favorite subjects are Florals and Bayou paintings, I will paint all subjects and am never bored.”
Barbara Haviland has been actively giving of her talents and time to Associated Louisiana Artists /Gallery By the Lake in Lake Charles, La. as board member and current co-treasurer. She is a member of Port Arthur and Nederland Art leagues, Texas Artists Museum and Outdoor Painters Society. Barbara is actively involved with several groups online, including Artists of Texas which gives her great joy. She is also a member of Oil Painters of America.
Barbara has been teaching still life painting for the past 10 years from her studio in Groves, TX, on the eastern edge of the state. Because this is the first time she will be available to teach a workshop in central Texas, and with the introductory price of only $350, we expect the class to fill up quickly.If you’re interested in taking her workshop,
