    From John:

    The Artist Studio is hosting its Annual Open Studio Day!

    You're invited!...

    I share a studio space at THE ARTIST STUDIO with eleven other artists in Albuquerque, NM. We will hold our Annual Open Studio Day on Sunday, March 3 from 1:00-4:00 PM. Although we have done this for years, this is our first open house since the pandemic. There should be a lot of new works on display. Hope to see you there! 

    The Artist Studio is located at 8200 Menaul Blvd. NE, Units A & B (There is also parking in the back).

    Select for video.

    Join us for another Bluebird Chat with  Beth Cooper of the Bluebird Studios. Bask in the sunshine with Michele as she is taped from Florida for this interview on her upcoming workhop in April. 

    Michele is an impressionistic oil painter using the palette knife and the brush. In this workshop, she will show you how to loosen up and add figures to your paintings in a natural way. We will be working with live models for one afternoon. Michele will take your work to a new level with her innovative approach to painting! This workshop is appropriate for advanced beginners to experienced painters. You won’t be disappointed.

    More information available on Michele's upcoming workshop at the Bluebird Studios:

    Michael Chesley Johnson, PAPNM Artist Signature Member,  is a  Mastrius Master Artist. He will be doing a (free) demo on Zoom.

    Mark your calendars! On February 29th, Thursday, at 5 pm Mountain Time, I’ll be live on Zoom and interviewed by Mastrius, the group that I am now mentoring for. You can join me for FREE at this link at that time:

    (4 PT / 5 MT / 6 CT / 7 ET)

    The program will last an hour, and I’ll be talking about what I do, why I do it and how I do it. Then, I’ll give a short demonstration of a painting technique that I call “making your best guess.” Are you a painter and frustrated with that first step in making color choices? In this technique, I show you how making an exact choice doesn’t matter! Just make your best guess, and take comfort in the knowledge that you can adjust that choice in the next phase. The demonstration will be in pastel.

    Also, the program is an introduction to me as a Master Artist and mentor for Mastrius. Starting March 10th, I’ll begin mentoring up to 10 aspiring artists. If you’re looking for guidance, consider this online group mentoring program. You can find out more details about my program here.

    From Peggy: "Many thanks to Kelly Kane and PleinAir Magazine for the special feature in the February/March 2024 issue about Nancy Silvia Murata, Ned Mueller, and me, all self described unstoppable octogenarians. Much appreciated! I can’t wait to read what Kelly will write about us when we all reach centenarian status. Until then I plan to paint large, live well and dance on." 

    Congratulations, Nancy and Peggy, PAPNM Members (and Ned as well).
