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?
