Bowl of Cherries (+ Sedona painters)

Private Collection

As promised, I'm happy to share snippets of feedback from my recent Sedona Arts Center workshop participants. I'll post a few more tomorrow. If you're curious about working with me, a good place to start is to read more about my workshops.
"One of the most inspiring and surprising aspects of Abbey is this: she is much better read and traveled than I had ever imagined. This is someone who brings an incredible discipline, expertise, and reverence for painting. I could feel her energy the minute I met her and appreciated her unselfish sharing." ~C. Cason, Pasadena, CA
"Having attended Abbey’s 2013 Sedona workshop, I had no hesitations about signing up for 2014. I was excited for the opportunity to study and paint with her again, and the Sedona Art Center is a wonderful creative venue. 
Abbey’s demos are my favorite aspect of the workshop. I learn so much from watching her paint, and I think all painters would benefit from working with Abbey. It is so interesting to see her demonstrations in person, and her in-depth critiques are invaluable. 
Since the workshop, I feel more thoughtful toward my own painting process. I am more conscious of my choices in both set-up and subject matter. Abbey clarified several specific issues with which I’ve been struggling, and that feels huge to me. It’s like a fog has lifted in my world, and I am so appreciative.
Abbey always gives one hundred and ten percent. She is so thoughtful and considerate during one-on-one time with each student, and it does not go unnoticed. She is one in a million!"
