Jeanne Mackenzie

Jeanne Mackenzie is another artist I would love to study with. She is yet another Colorado painter whose work just amazes me. It’s impressionistic but not extremely so. Here are a couple of samples.

Her workshop schedule is interesting also. She’s teaching in Telluride in June, and then in Tucson in December. Hmm, there’s that desert again. And look at this description for the Tucson workshop:
Give yourself a Holiday present! This workshop will include both outdoor plein air and studio. We will capture on location the beautiful Catalinas and desert color. Then, we will spend a few days in the studio bringing one of the plein air studies up into a studio painting. We will learn to make it feel as fresh as the plein air experience.

Could that one be more perfect? Too bad Telluride would be hard to get to and December is so far away! Check out Jeanne’s work at
