I just had the perfect opportunity to take a drawing class with Virgil Stephens who is a well-known New Mexico artist who does fine drawings and oil paintings. His wife is his perfect companion and team-member and they both put on a efficient and enjoyable workshop in Ruidoso. He is looking for more students if you are interested.
Virgil does the best horses. This is a large oil painting and representation of his excellent drawing and painting skills.

This large painting represents the color and edginess I need to add to my setting.
When it comes to my art, I feel like I'm unlocking something within.... Like I'm getting closer and closer to where I want to be. I feel like I've been down a long hallway and I've tried so many doors, and even stepped into the rooms and experimented with so many ideas. But now, I feel like I'm entering spaces that feel more like where I'm suppose to be. I still don't know where I'll end up, but at least I feel I'm heading in the right direction.
It is like the wood-fire in my living room. Except it warms and excites my very soul.
Even in this winter season, and a season of life that may be colder and harsher, I hope you are finding some warmth within as well.

Don't try to stop her or she will kiss you like a slobbering toothless baby and you will have to grin and bear it.
