Taos Flower

Been in Taos at a painting workshop, "Intensive Studies Seminar" with Katherine Chang Liu, Skip Lawrence, Fran Larson and Christopher Schink. There were about a hundred painters and collage artists gathered to glean knowledge and get feedback from these very experienced eyes. It was good timing for me as I have just begun a new body of work - patterned florals - and I'm very excited about it! The vistas here are grand and the food is remarkable. What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than with a guava leaf margarita, a chile rellenos, and artist friends?

Hi, Susan - kind of interesting that I just went to your website images and was about to write something about how your beautiful work with its bold shapes and colors reminded me of Milton Avery. . .and there on your blog, the first thing I read was a quote of his. Also, that's great that you had a workshop with K. Chang Liu - I love her work and hear she's a great teacher. It sounds terrific.
