Have you ever sat down to paint and felt uninspired? At a loss for ideas? Tired of the same old subject matter? Paralyzed by too many ideas? Join watercolorist Wendy Caldwell Maloney for an invigorating and mind-expanding workshop to jumpstart your creative process! Learn how using self-imposed restrictions can help you get out of your own way and unlock a flood of fresh ideas. In this workshop, you will engage in several exercises, each beginning with a challenge and a set of constraints, and come to discover that once you have something to push against, your ideas will begin to flow and your solutions will multiply.

This is an exciting and eye-opening process for experienced and inexperienced painters alike; there are no 'wrong' answers, and every individual benefits from the combined energy of the group. Bring a friend along who's looking to open up to new possibility!

Wendy Caldwell Maloney is a Buffalo watercolorist with an extensive background in studio art, typesetting, and graphic design. With a BFA from Alfred University and a decade in the pre-press industry, she opened her own business in 1991, and served the WNY business community as owner of Current Design for twenty-five years. In 2002 a decision to return to the fine arts led her to study with Margaret M. Martin, and within a year she was exhibiting and selling her work in WNY and New England. Wendy's work is currently held in private and corporate collections in the US, Canada, Italy, Morocco, and Mexico. "I am passionate about exploring and celebrating the staggering variety and detail in our natural world, and am inspired and renewed by music, athletics and dance."
