 If you've thought about taking a workshop with me in Sedona and haven't yet, this is probably your chance!  I am teaching fewer workshops these days to refocus on my New Mexico program for experienced painters.  The Sedona workshops are for all levels and all media.  I am eager to share this landscape with you, as it has been a very special part of my life for the last ten years.  The workshop is only $300, runs Tuesday-Friday from 9-1 each day.  After working with me in the mornings, you can take the afternoon to explore or, if you wish, I will be happy to give you optional painting assignments, and I will most likely be painting with you then, too.  Don't forget that I can arrange lodging for you at the studio for only $70/night, and this will go fast as lodging is VERY limited.  Please let me know if you are interested!  Contact me at mcj.painter@gmail.com or visit www.PaintTheSouthwest.com or www.MChesleyJohnson.com

Kate Thompson Coming in May 2019


II haven't traveled since my trip to Italy in the Fall so I have had a good chunk of uninterrupted studio time. So important to slow down and get focused. I am very disciplined when it comes to my studio time. It is a 9-5 job for me. When I have "dial it in days" I pivot and will work on promotions, organizing my stuff, get on the web for inspiration but I stay in my studio!
So the one thing about studio time is it can be glorious, frustrating, obsessive or living hell. Being an artist is one of the hardest jobs in the world. To create something out of nothing knowing that you have to create to support your life and your soul, is a tricky business. There was nothing else in my life I ever wanted to do even when I was bad at it. Any ways enough of the drama here is the work that I have been creating. I have been working in oils. I doubt I will ever go back to acrylics. I am so inspired by Ann Gale's work. I have been studying her a lot lately and here are some pieces that came out of that.
