Our Critique group met at Chris Richter’s temporary winter studio normally occupied by beloved New Mexico painter , Forrest Moses.
It is an enchanting space at the back of an old adobe located on Santa Fe’s historic east side close to Canyon Road.
Chris is preparing for an upcoming exhibition at Chiaroscuro Gallery here in Santa Fe.
Opening reception Saturday, July 13th http://chiaroscurosantafe.com/exhibitions/90/
The work seen in these photos is in progress, Chris adds many layers of juicy oil paint and sands the surface to a soft gloss.
I always want to touch the surface and am amazed that we work in the same medium and create such different results.
One of the joys of belonging to a crit group is to watch your fellow artists explore, grow and evolve.
Every time my gaze landed on an object or an area I found it to be incredibly beautiful. I took so many photographs and wanted to share the highlights.
