All New ~ Online Classes !

Evening Marsh, detail. Mary Byrom

Good news! I moved all my painting classes online! Now you can take a fun class from your home or studio!

Life certainly is changing fast these days and, it can be challenging for some folks. So I am offering sessions of calm, refreshing, focused creativity as the perfect antidote to all this massive change that is ebbing and flowing all around us.

All classes are live! You can ask questions, share your work, get feedback and be with a great group of supportive, enthusiastic painters!

New Beginnings and a New Year !

Happy New Year Everyone!
Wishing you health, happiness & peace in the New Year.

A summer day in the lakes region of New Hampshire. Cloud patterns on the mountains! 

I don’t know if your past year has been like this but it feels like time is racing by and I’ve been playing catch up for the last 3 months !  I am finally almost up to date with all the important things on my calendar. It’s been a whirlwind year with little time off.  Whenever I did have a few open days it was to regroup or catch up or prepare for the next event on my schedule.
The good news? Its been fun, rewarding and so enriching. And I’m being recruited to teach painting in lovely places like Italy.  Would you like to come with me to Italy to paint near the birth place of Raphael? Or maybe take a mini vacation to sketch and paint for a long weekend in Quebec City?  These are a few possibilities of sketching & painting adventures for 2020.

Spring 2018 Sketchbook class on a bright sunny day. You all are the best! 

Plus, due to popular demand, I will be releasing one of my first online classes, “Color” in 2019. The filming and  production of this is one of the extra things I’ve been trying to fit into my already active schedule. Also, I will be publishing my first book & color mixing guide in 2019 !  I promise , I will try to post more regularly to my blog to keep you updated on everything.
My blog might show up from time to time as a vlog as I am able to post my painting & plein air videos quickly and easily.  It’s been harder to find the time to sit down and write.
I hope all of you are catching your breath after your adventures of 2018 and looking forward to a enriching new year.
I want to thank all of you for your friendship, support and positive messages in 2018.  I’m wishing you all the best for 2019 !
