Behind the scenes and farewell to the Anthony Ryder School..

It has been such a challenging and rewarding year at the Tony Ryder School in Santa Fe - from meeting and working with so many wonderful people to all of us getting completely sick of each other ( at least until we could throw the Frisbee!)..  I learned so much from Tony, Anna, Krista, Toby, John, Dave and Celeste - and cannot thank them enough for letting me be part of their world for almost a year.  I miss them and also other wonderful fellow students - Tina, Sarah, Dorothy, Jacob, Rose, Shelly, Alex, Anwar the Gangsta, Emile, Daralyn,  and enjoyed the friendships I have made and will treasure.   I hope I will get the chance to study with them in the future - they are all great humans and wonderful artists!

Jacob, Tony, Anwar ( the Indo-Gangsta,) David-B and Toby.. these are usually very unhappy dudes, I paid them each 10.00 to laugh/smile.  Except Anwar - who got a Shrek Happy Meal toy !

Santa FE local gang-signage thrown..  Also Big John R graced us with his manly and handsome personage!  I think this is after a beer or two ?

Thank you Rose W ( on the right) and Mark ( hub) for putting on the bar-b-que!  That's Celeste Ryder in the background, avoiding hand grenades no doubt!

Tony and a painting he did in 2008.  You can tell he LOVES having his picture taken!  I own the poster to this painting ( could not afford the painting!!)

There is hopefully never any question of Tony's mad genius!  ( this is a long still life work of his I think mostly completed in 2009.  Amazing, Stunning.
