The art of Terry Stanley

"Along for the Ride" copyright Terry Stanley

Of all the people that I have been blessed to have met over the years as an artist, there are few that have made such an impact on my work and life as one of my mentors Terry Stanley. Having met her a number of years ago at a fundraiser art event in White Bear Lake, I have come to enjoy our regular chats over the phone. Unfortunately since she lives all the way over in Green Bay, WI, it makes it a little harder to actually get together in person. That's why come the end of next week, it is going to be great to spend time over there, checking out her great new studio space and hopefully doing a little painting as well. The pastel work that she does has wonderful palette's of color and composition. I would definitely recommend checking out her work at either "Red Bubble" or her blog at "Art Lady Confidential".

The chicken is great! Glad you will be getting some studio time together!

Terry is one of those people that brings synergy to a relationship -- ie, the result is greater than the sum of its parts.

I am very envious of her new studio space.

It should be a blast Nina. Sometime we will have to get the paint flying around as well!

Hey Janet. She sure is a great person to know isn't she. And yes, I am sure I will be very jealous of her studio as well when I see it. From the pictures, it looks great. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend out there in NJ
