Isle of Skye

Had the remarkable experience of attending the centenary symposium honoring the wonderful American abstract expressionist painter, Jon Schueler, on the enchanted Isle of Skye last weekend.

Met an array of very impressive people ~ starting with Magda Salveson ~ Schueler's widow, Mary Ann Caws, Richard DeMarco, John Purser, Ann Koll, Dianne Cousineau, and...and...and...

My head and heart are still spinning with the thoughts and knowledge shared in the lectures, the impressions of seeing Schueler's paintings and works on paper, and the considerable warmth, respect and love that was sincerely evident throughout.

It was an experience that will stay will me, and I suspect will profoundly inform my future artwork.
What a gift!
