|Abbey Ryan and Debbie Denstorff|
I started a new journey with my painting in
April 2013. I had been an admirer of Abbey Ryan's paintings for almost 5-6 years and have had the opportunity to purchase a couple. In April, I took the opportunity to take one of her Private Painting Mentoring session and there is where my journey has taken me. Through this incredible mentoring, I was able to find out my strengths and learn that I wanted to paint more from life. The majority of my paintings up until now have been from photographs I have taken. I feel I have had the opportunity to see things in a whole new way. Abbey has a wonderful way of teaching and if you have every considered something like private mentoring, I highly recommend it.
I can't say it has been easy, but it has definitely been fun and I look forward to going to my studio as often as I can. The two paintings below were painted in Sedona, Arizona, where I attended a workshop with Abbey in June of this year. I have continued to work on still life paintings and will be posting them later in the week. Let me know what you think.
