Sarah Street!
Last night we hosted our second official 'Art on the Carte' event at Sarah Street Grill in Stroudsburg and it went off without a hitch!

This time we painted Vincent van Gogh's 'Wheatfield with Cypresses,' 
discussed Post-Impressionism and van Gogh's life, and learned about color theory and different painting techniques, including impasto (thick, short brushstrokes signature of van Gogh's style).

Everyone did an amazing job, the food was spectacular, and fun was had by all!

Here is a photo gallery of the evening's event:

What an awesome class!

 Thank you Sarah Street for hosting us, 
and to everyone who came out for our first event in Stroudsburg;

I hope you all left feeling inspired and proud!
You did an amazing job, and it was great getting to work with all of you last night!


October 2014 Events

Hi Friends!

This Autumn is exhilarating. 

Not only am I the feature artist at Five Corner's Cafe in my hometown of Old Forge, New York, this month,
but I will also be there all winter season!

So, if you missed the First Friday Art Walk last night, you can stop in anytime this Fall or Winter to view my new oil series!

Also, we are hosting a first of hopefully many art and food events this month.
This month's event will be based on Post-Impressionism, and will also be hosted in my hometown:

You can join either event, attend just one if you wish, or just stop in to see the artwork and grab a glass of wine!

We hope to see you there!

Once again, I have to shout out a special and sincere 'Thank you!' to Paul and Kathy of Five Corner's; 
There is no place on earth I would rather exhibit my work and host a first event like this. 
Your food, atmosphere and friendship are unparalleled. 
To be working beside you once again after all of these years is the perfect marriage of my art life and my food life. 
I am honored and exhilarated to start this adventure, but more so because you are where it began twenty years ago when you took me in at Van Auken's.
You are my mentors, friends and family.

Love you guys!
Let's do this!

Also, for my Pennsylvania friends, stay tuned for information on my November gig at Sarah Street! 

Have a great weekend everyone!

The Premier Event!
Art on a Carte + Five Corner's
Vincent van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' (1888)


Our very first 'Art on a Carte' event went off without a hitch this past Sunday, 
and the entire class did an absolutely amazing job!

Thank you guys so much for coming!
It was a great way to spend a cold, snowy day, and I hope you all left inspired, and with a little more art in your soul.

Here is a photo spread of the event!

The 'Carte' packed and ready to go!


I am so proud and so honored;
My first official event, surrounded by my new painting series on exhibit, in my dear friend's restaurant, in my hometown...
It doesn't get any better!


Introducing Impressionism and Post-Impressionism
Learning about van Gogh;
his history, his work, his life, his legacy...

Color Theory Portion;
The class was only allowed to use the primary colors, plus white and black to create their images;
they had to create any and all other colors themselves!
Demonstrating the complementary colors and how to make neutrals
Demonstrating the value scale, and how to make tints and shades
(I'm so serious?!!?)

Every student was encouraged to choose their own color scheme, format and approach;
Thank you Impressionism for allowing us to pour our own creativity and personalities onto the canvas!

The moment when people find their groove is magical!
So peaceful...

A little liquid encouragement...

The Delicious Part!

Paul's Incredible van Gogh-inspired Menu!
Designing a menu around a man who drank 28 cups of coffee a day to avoid eating, and spent all of his money on art supplies and absinthe was a difficult task;
 but Paul stepped up effortlessly to the challenge and created a perfect menu that maps out van Gogh by his life experiences and locales.
And yes, it tasted as delicious as it reads.  

The Art History Packets for the Guests

Kath's Awesome Tablescapes!
THIS Woman!
Kath is the reason this entire event happened!

Thank you again to everyone who came out and made this event a success!
I had an amazing time, and I am so excited and honored that I got to start this new adventure in my hometown with all of you.

There is no place like home!

Keep painting and I hope to see you again soon!
xoxo, k
