Inside the studio

Here I am at work in the studio. The location is a very large floor in a commercial shopping complex on the Plaza in Santa Fe. Other artists shared the space from time to time and master classes were held here led by famous artists, Helen Frankenthaler, Richard Diebenkorn, Nathan Oliviera, Nancy Graves and many others. The atmosphere was one of total silence and deep concentration. Making art is serious business we thought. We took ourselves and our art very seriously.

One of my great teachers said to me, "Be sure you go to the studio every day so you'll be there when the grand moment comes."
