Encounter: Painter, Teacher and Author Sean Dye

Sean Dye at work

Last week, I had a treat.  I spent a few days painting with painter, teacher and author Sean Dye, who had come from Vermont to take a workshop with me.  Sean is an accomplished painter, so for me, it was indeed an honor to have him as a student.  (This is his third time studying with me.)  Sean founded the Vermont Pastel Society, has written the popular book Painting with Water-Soluble Oils and appears in three videos and teaches regularly. We had a great time painting from Sedona to Jerome and points in between.  Recently, he moved his studio to Creative Space Gallery in Vergennes, Vermont.

Here are some of the paintings I did during the week:

High Desert Juniper II, 16x20 oil

Wake of the Flood, 9x12 oil

Morning Shadow 11x14 oil

High Desert Juniper I, 11x14 oil
Cuban Queen of Jerome 9x12 oil
Jerome Foundation Wall 9x12 oil
(This one is very different for me, and I wonder who I was channeling?)
