Parsons Holiday Show Friday, December 9, from 5 – 8 pm
John Moyers in Taos
Moyers said, “We had attended art school where the emphasis was not on traditional academic studies but on painting abstractly.
The time-honored techniques of color and value and working outdoors from life had to be discovered anew.”
"I paint what excites me. Maybe for two months all I want to do is landscapes, then maybe Native Americans and then Mexican pieces."
"I hope people like what I do. I just try to paint. I try to make the values and colors as true to life as I can."
"The more you paint, the more comfortable you get with the process. Hopefully, I'm improving all the time."
