I enjoyed having another group of fine artists at my March 2007 Watercolor Painting Workshop in St. George. Our focus was on painting the red rock landscape in watercolor. The weather was so great we ditched the classroom for awhile and slipped up on the red hill for a little sketching.
Our group came from several western states including four excellent watercolorists from Mesquite Nevada: Barbara Worley, Diane Taterka, Joanne Johansen, and Peggy Peterson. Bessann Peterson and Karen Bettilyon came down from Salt Lake City, Utah. Tyson Kartchner drove down from Boulder, Colorado while Pat Gibson travelled from Willow Creek, Montana. Lola Krummenacher and Glen Bessonette were repeat students from the St. George, Utah area.
Becky Whitney hosted the class at Passion for Painting Gallery and had stretched a Happy Birthday banner across the room for my birthday. She also gave me a birthday gift of a fantastic Anderson French Easel. I love it because you don’t have to wrestle with the legs — they slide out and snap quickly into place. I can’t wait to try it out.
