R.I.P. Ken Auster

The art world recently lost 
a truly great artist and instructor 

I took a workshop with him at the 
South Shore Art Center in 2009  
that changed my whole approach to painting. 

Use more paint! 
Put a stoke down and leave it alone!
(Among many other "Ken-isms") 
He was a riveting and generous instructor.   

Two Chefs 
11 x 14 oil 
(demo purchased at the workshop,
 hanging in my kitchen)  

There are many tributes and descriptions 
of him and his work on his Facebook page.
I highly reccomend discovering
 his many talents and contributions to the art world. 
He will be sorely missed by many.

  1. I took my first plein air workshop with Ken many years ago and learned so much. I am so sorry to hear this …
