Amazing artist Tony Ryder was in town teaching a workshop at Gage and I am very lucky to be able to spend some time with him. Tony is one of the best artist and teacher there is! Tony Ryder has his own art school in Santa Fe. I think I paint and draw better with him in the studio. Check him out!!www.theryderstudio.com

Everyday was my idea for these, three hour, paintings. I wanted them to be fresh quick and lively. I chose subjects that were on hand with little manipulation. I was more interested in my experience and quick color application then police report accuracy. Painting outside with the natural light made the whole process quite exciting to me because of the movement and change of intensity of the light. Each time I was capturing a living moment. The beginning was a mixture of childlike zeal and anticipation to interpret what I see with my brush and paint. – Laura Grover
