Whistle Stop Corner Is Open!
We started off with a BANG! November 9-12, 2014, the amazing artist/art
instructor Carol Marine and 18 of her students came to WSC from all
over the US and Canada. We're happy to say it all went wonderfully!
February 19-22, 2015 I gave a Narrative Figure in the Interior workshop
for 12 artists- my first here at WSC. We tackled huge subject matter
in a small amount of time, and I'm proud of each of the artists for
their bravery and their results.
I'm offering a Portrait Painting Workshop May 14-17 next... check out
the details on my calendar
In July, Ugur is offering a Photo Editing for Painters workshop, details
Imagine this:Taking a painting workshop in an arts school in what was
originally a turn-of-last-century grocery store in downtown San Antonio.
Imagine staying on-site in a guesthouse with a few of the other attending
artists. After the workshop, painting into the evening, or exploring
San Antonio's Riverwalk a 15 minute walk away. If you'd like to know
more about what we're up to, check out Whistle

We have closed our gallery in order to focus all our efforts where our
hearts are- at Whistle Stop Corner. We loved our four years owning and
managing NSG and have many new friends because of our time there.
The website still goes on-
NSG - and we know we will find new ways to share our artworks with
I'm not accepting any commissions right now in order to help get WSC
up and running. I may again in the future, but for now I have some paintings
of my own in mind. It's all good.

Susan is an amazing teacher for both the beginning and advanced student.
She has the gift of being able to focus on the essential needs of
her student and offer specific information that is immediately applicable
without being overwhelming. She explains concepts with elegant simplicity
and offers critiques that are to the point and never judgmental. Her
manner is enthusiastic and encouraging; it is great fun to study with
her. I have learned more in less time from her than from any other
teacher I have studied with. She also has invaluable personal experience
and creative ideas to offer regarding the practicalities of making
a living as an artist. I feel lucky to be able to study with her,
and strongly recommend her as a teacher.
Our Rockwall workshop was just awesome!! These are the things that
stood out in my mind: First, Susan asked each person what we wanted
to work on the most- for me it was drawing skills: a portrait that
resembled the photo. Susan's point system was very helpful. She explained
the importance of value scale, she gave us a card with a hole punched
out, so you could compare the color you put down, to see where it
would fall on the value scale, this applies to landscape, portrait,
animals etc. She stressed that we learn to squint & how to do
that without getting wrinkles! The time she spent with each one of
us was the best I've ever had in any workshop, and I have taken many
over the years. I left very inspired by Susan and her advice that
I came away with, was "Commit to painting fifty small one-hour
paintings rather than (1) fifty hour painting." If you are thinking
about getting together with some of your art buddies, have Susan come
to your town. It will be the best time ever
and the most fun!!!
