In January of 2007, I had the opportunity to take a weekend workshop with local artist, Greta Guzek. I admire Greta immensely both as an artist and a person. She is also a marvellous teacher, providing the right amount of guidance, without over-influencing the painting. That weekend was better than going to a spa! Here is the result of the weekend's efforts; a painting (20x24) taken from a photograph of a Cuban scene. I chose this subject because I wanted the challenge of trying various textures and figures. I could never come up with a satisfactory title for this piece. It remains in my "collection" (fancy way of saying it is stacked against the wall).
