Back in the late 80's I finally got my
BFA at Marylhurst University. One
of my favorite teachers was Stephen Hayes.
I took Second Year Drawing, Life Drawing
and Mono-prints from Stephen. He's a
wonderful teacher and fabulous painter.
Here I am with Stephen in front of the
chair painting that Russell and I bought back
in the late 80's. We have loaned it to
be included in this lovely retrospective.
It's our favorite painting.
Here's more info:
And a lovely chair it is too.ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. ☺
That's very cool you loaned it to them.ReplyDelete
Quite a beautiful painting indeed KatheReplyDelete
There was a time when there were three Stephen Hayeses painting in Portland Oregon. This fellow was one; another learned how to paint in prison after knocking off a few liquor stores, and then there was me. I learned when I went to refinance my house years ago that I was the only Stephen Hayes with good credit.ReplyDelete
How wonderful! He is a tremendous artist and storyteller, and i wish i lived there so i could see this.ReplyDelete
Nice to see an artist honored.ReplyDelete
I was so confused for a minute because I follow one of the Stephen Hayes' blog. Thank goodness that Stephen left a comment so I didn't have to ask if your painting was done by him.ReplyDelete
Still.. a very cool picture and I love that you are giving credit to someone that touched your life in a positive way.
this Stephen Hayes is NOT our wonderful fellow blogger Stephen Hayes of Chubby Chatterbox fame!ReplyDelete
I first looked at Mr. C's blog because I thought he was the other Mr Hayes! Cheers to all!
