Come join me for two fun days

as we explore the collection at the National Museum of Transportation. Learn how to create a great painting while appreciating the evolution of great designs, the power of locomotives and the fun of portraying motion.


The location is convenient and comfortable. Demos will be indoors so weather won’t be issue. You can stay under cover as you create your own paintings or you can access the museum’s vast collection of antique wagons, locomotives, cabooses, and vintage cars highlighted by Bobby Darin’s 1960 dream car of the future.


I’ve been fortunate to enjoy painting from this collection and to create art for the museum including a 60’ mural depicting a whimsical take on transportation aimed at kids.  I will show you what I learned in the process and will share how to infuse personality and motion when portraying vehicles. 

PLUS AN BONUS:   The Museum of Transport is holding an antique car rally on the museum grounds both days expanding the painting options exponentially. 

It won’t be all fun and games I will actually teach both days, demo and offer guidance.


This workshop is for serious artists wanting to act like kids.

Attendance is limited so don’t wait!

QUESTION: Do I need to be an experienced painter to attend?

ANSWER:  Not at all.  This workshop will teach you the fundamentals that will give you a strong foundation for painting.  Mixing color, values,  how to apply paint to the canvas, different brushes and more.

QUESTION: Do I actually need to paint in oils at the workshop?

ANSWER:  No.  You can benefit from lectures in the mornings.  Sketch or paint in other mediums (acrylics, pastels, watercolor) or observe others paint in the afternoons.

QUESTION: As a first time oil painter will it be expensive to purchase supplies?

ANSWER:  Doesn't need to be expensive.  I can recommend the basic supplies that will get you started for around $50 or less.  Painting panels are provided and I have extra easels, palettes, thinner pale that are available to borrow. 

Feel free to contact me directly with additional questions.
