I had the sincere pleasure of working recently with still life artist (Philadelphia) Abbey Ryan. Abbey teaches art and has always been one of my favorites. She offers one on one mentoring classes on a limited basis. I think that I learned more from her than anyone I have worked with EVER! If you want to improve your artwork, I would highly recommend her as a mentor. Plus, she is fun as well! After taking her suggestions, this is my latest still life painted from life.
Thanks for the education and friendship Abbey!
