Student Work from Abstract Painting in Vermont

Which was last week.  GREAT group, as usual.  And this workshop is small - twelve students - so we really get to know each other and spend social time as well as studio time. Next year's workshop will take place in Manchester, Vermont, as the new community library has a fantastic event space, filled with light (and air conditioning, I hope). 

Please do not re-post these images; they are student work, posted here anonymously.  If you post them elsewhere, they will appear to be my work, and as much as I'd like to take credit, it would be misleading.

This one I can say is a communal piece. We started by making marks, then passing the paper to the next person, who would make a very different mark.  It was fun, but not sure how productive.

This series was based on inspiration from the artist Claire B. Cotts.

This is part of a series based on inspiration from Lee Kaloidis, whose work I drool over.

Unfortunately, I did not get pictures of everybody's work, and some that I did take did not come out well.  So the above does not include work from all students.  Enjoy the eye candy!


  1. Very cool work - it appears you had some very talented students!

  2. Great work, wish I could have been there!

  3. Some lovely work there....must've been so satisfying.

  4. Fantastic! I'm hoping to attend your Santa Fe workshop next summer.

  5. I am constantly beating myself up for things that I have done wrong, I can not stop punishing myself for the mistakes I have made in the past to a point where beginning to take over my life. I even feel guilty for having an occasional happy feeling, for laughing or feeling like things will be OK. This is because I feel like I do not deserve anything good in life anymore. It has gotten to a point where I hate myself and do not know how to live with myself anymore.I do not know what do I just want everything to end.
