This Thanksgiving I'm sending special thanks... and credit... to the folks who have inspired and helped bring clarity to my creative process. From art class and workshop teachers to historic landmarks and historic homes, my thanks to:
Karen O'Neil of the Art Student's League.
Leah Lopez at the New York Academy of Art.
Daily Painter Qiang Huang at his Putney, VT workshop.
Julian Merrow-Smith plein air workshop at La Madeleine in Provence.
Amawalk Friends Meeting House for access to their historic space.
The Kent CT Historical Society and Seven Hearths, the studio/home of George Laurence Nelson.
Abbey Ryan and the welcoming folks at John F. Peto Studio Museum.
Special thanks go to Todd M. Casey whose classical training and generous nature continue to amaze our little "painting posse" and improve our skills every time we get together!
And to the many friends (personal and internet) and collectors (who have become friends): Thank you for your kind comments. You help soothe those inevitable artistic frustrations and keep me moving forward. I am so very grateful to you all!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
