Laurie's Summer Studio

Each summer, painter Laurie Meseroll moves back to Woodstock, NY and ensconces herself among the Catskill Mountains and the town she loves. There, she maintains a small sunny studio in the outbuildings of her family's homestead. But on those days, when the weather is nice, she moves her painting outside and spends the day working on pieces in the shade of her trees.

We made the trip to Woodstock earlier this week to meet fellow Earth Angels artist, potter Jill Wiener, and spent the day with Laurie and her daughters Tasie and Sophie. We watched Laurie paint and shared in the joy of being outdoors.

Here are some of my fave images from our day together...

Laurie and the interior of her summer studio space, along with more images of her painting seminars, will be featured in an upcoming issue of Where Women Create magazine. We'll keep you posted!

Until then, I am taking Laurie's lessons in stride... this post was written al fresco! I am enjoying a summer's afternoon on the porch.

New work from Laurie can be seen on her webpage of our site and will be sent via email to those on her email update list later this week...

How could anyone not create in so peaceful a setting? Thank you for sharing Laurie's summer studio. It's inspiring!

absolutely love it! I was fortunate enough to take a class from Laurie at last year's Creative Connection. She is just the loveliest and so creative. She taught me to loosen up and not be so 'processed' about my painting process.
I sooo love her outdoor studio. I wish I could see it for myself. I will have to take her inspiration and do some outdoor projects myself this summer.
Thank you for this wonderful post!
