Artists' Retreat in New Mexico


Last week I was in southern New Mexico at a week long painting retreat. The workshop, led by Kim English, focused on painting figures in the landscape and we worked primarily outside - en plein air.
It was very challenging and since it was my first opportunity to paint figures... I don't think you'll see any of my workshop paintings displayed here!
I do know, though, that in the future I will definitely be confident enough to add figures to my paintings. Small ones.
The photo is of my good painting friends and I. We meet only once a year or less but drop right back into our good friendships whenever we are together. We talk about our art work for HOURS on end! I'm the one on the far left.
