Two new pieces off the easel

The bear piece is called, 'Walk the Walk'.....and the fox is "Watch & Wait". Both are 8 x 10 oils done for the show in Breckenridge next week.

Last summer, a huge black bear had his way with my trash can and apricot tree - then left bear poop all over my lawn.....full of apricot pits. I hesitate to use the correct term, 'bear scat' as it looked like it had been fired out of a cannon. Obviously, the huge quantity of apricots he consumed didn't sit well with his GI tract.

Workshop Date Changed

A few days ago, I posted the dates for a watercolor workshop I'm teaching in September, here in Sedona. There is a scheduling conflict with another workshop at Sedona Arts Center, so the workshop date has been moved up a week to September 6, 7 & 8th.

Oil - 7" x 7". The title may be 'Summit'. Will have to think on it!

Watercolor Workshop scheduled

I have been receiving a ton of emails asking 'when are you teaching another watercolor workshop'? I hadn't planned on it, but Sedona Arts Center has an opening in September so at the last minute, I am scheduled to teach one.

The workshop will be at The Sedona Arts Center, Sedona, Arizona, September 6, 7 & 8, 2008. I do two demos each day and while students paint, I spend individual time with each one. I will show how I work in transparent pigment, layering and glazing on dry 300 lb paper...but my last demo of the workshop will be in opaque watercolor.

Email me if you'd like more information on the workshop: earnshaw@hughes.net or adeleearnshaw@yahoo.com or contact Sedona Arts Center directly at: vfazio@sedonaartscenter.com. There'll be information on the WORKSHOPS section of my website, www.AdeleEarnshaw.com, in a day or two.


This 16" x 20" oil, simply titled, 'Snow', came easily. The paint jumped off the brush and knew just where to go. Wish all paintings could come so easily! This is almost finished....I have to live with it for a few days before I decide if it needs any changes.

My Favorite

Of the landscapes I've been painting for the Breckenridge show, this little 7" x 7" is my favorite.
I have to show it in the frame as I like the frame as much as I like the painting!

More of Colorado


I've had my nose to the grindstone, painting studio landscapes for an upcoming show in Breckenridge.

These are some of the pieces I've done in the last few weeks.
