Sally Rutledge - Albuquerque, New Mexico - "Painting has always been my creative tool. When I found anthroposophy my art could finally be filled with meaning. Color now pulsed through the sky, moving and dancing through all of its' smaller colors. I was filled with a new passion for life, which continues to grow stronger over time. My most comfortable medium is charcoal, for darkness and light, giving Color direction and movement on canvas, paper, large walls and even rooms. My favorite work continues to be the teaching of Color. A new joy in existence lights up a person's face, as they put brush to paper." - -
