Just returned from a week in Cullowhee, NC studying collage and painting with Elizabeth O'Reilly. She shared her process of going from painting to collage and back again, working with simplified drawings done on site. She is also a plein air painter and teaches that as well in New York and New England. There is a great article about her urban landscapes in Plein Air Magazine, Sept. 2013. This tunnel on WNC campus is well known. I may do a painting of it and include the graffiti covering the interior walls. As usual, very glad I went and I'm always inspired by the artists, writers and craftspeople there.
