Rebecca Crowell

Rebecca Crowell
Annaghmakerrig 48" x 36" (2011)

Rebecca Crowell is an artist I have admired for sometime. 
 In May of 2011, I took a cold wax and oil workshop that she taught at her studio.
Being in a an artist's studio for a workshop allows you to take in their surroundings,
see their stuff, see stuff you wouldn't see in a classroom.
For instance...
There was a HUGE painting waiting to be picked up.
 It was a commission from an out of state hospital.
Rebecca's work has such incredible depth.
Revealing, exposing, covering up, veiling -- layer upon layer.
This Friday she will be in Milwaukee for an opening
at the Elaine Erickson Gallery.
I can hardly wait.
Hope you check out her website and blog.
You're in for something fantastic.
