What are your favorite places to create art?

I have been painting professionally for many years, and without a doubt I have spent more time painting outdoors "en plein air" than ever in my studio.

What kind of group art excursion have you always wanted to take, but nobody to take it with?

Oh, that is easy. The Louvre Museum, Paris, France. A 1700's painting of my great-great-(etc) grandfather hangs there, François Boucher

What are some of your favorite colors?

Every hue of every sky, landscape shade and shadow, including some colors almost no-one else sees.

Who are some of your favorite artists and art forms?

I can learn from so many from so many ages, but I might say post impressionists, more particularly the Fauvists Emil Nolde and Georges Rouault.

What do you most value in an art-making companion?

I love to meet and share with other artists, and can demonstrate while others watch or on group excursions, but when I work, as Greta Garbo famously said, "I want to be alone."


Painting and meeting and talking to other artists is my passion. Devita Stipek Writer: En plein air Oil paintings; commissioned architectural art and murals.
