Steve Quiller by Cyd Rust  Stephen Quiller was in Golden, CO this week to juror the 2009 Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Show at Foothills Art Center.

He was also giving a three day workshop.

If you know anything about Steve, you know his workshops fill up immediately, and always have waiting lists. I sadly did not find out early enough.


There was a last minute cancellation in the workshop he was giving and lucky me! I got the magical phone call to come fill it! yay.

It was great seeing Steve again.

Stephen Quiller is one of the most humble and kind artists I have met. He is so willing to share the knowledge he has acquired over the years and I so admire that in an artist of his caliber. And watching him paint, well it is a joy.

The refresher really helped fill in the gaps I had remaining after the intense five day winter workshop at Jack Richeson’s, particularly regarding the use of semi-neutrals which Steve uses often.

I love surprises, and this was about as good as they get.
I am so glad Stephen decided to come over the mountain.
