September, 2008- My husband and I traveled to Taos, New Mexico for a few days of painting workshops (me) and golf/photo taking (him). The workshop I attended was at the famous Nicholai Fechin Museum/former home, and it was taught by an amazing painter, Jeffrey Watts ( of Watts Atelier in Encinitas, California). To attend such an informative workshop in the former studio of one of the true "Masters" of our century was a memory and experience that I will forever cherish. For three days, we painted models from life dressed in authentic Native American attire in Mr. Fechin's spacious studio under north light. While we were there, a photographer from American Artist Magazine snapped photos of us. What a thrill to find a photo of Jeff and I on the front cover of the winter issue of American Artist/Workshop Magazine when I got my subscription in the mail! My work was also shown in the article!
