"Demo at Phoenix 1" --- Sold
I have spent 3 wonderful days in Phoenix AZ, and had a really great time. Before this trip, I did not know that Phoenix and Scottsdale are so close. I arrived on last Thursday afternoon. It happened to be the date of the Scottsdale gallery walk. All galleries were open to very late hours. A local artist named Li Mahalik picked me up, and we went to see great art in Scottsdale. I was amazed to see so many great paintings there. I have learned quite a bit. Arizona is so beautiful. It changed my idea about desert completely. The saguaros are so huge. I really like their shapes. I wish I did some plein air there. The workshop went very well. I really appreciate the hard work of Li Mahalik and Sue Hunter for putting this workshop together. I made many new friends. Thank you very much for coming. This painting is my first demo at the workshop.
