Kilborn Workshop Finale
The final event of each Stephen Kilborn painting workshop is a Friday evening show opening at the Kilborn Gallery in Taos. One painting from each participant is matted, framed and hung.
Lavern Kilborn earns star status each workshop after serving gourmet luncheons each day. Bob eagerly describes to me, in detail, the menu and preparation of the day’s dishes. Lavern happily shares recipes so that participants can enjoy a taste of Taos throughout the year.
Stephen Kilborn and daughter Alice stand before some of his colorful, abstract landscape paintings.
Bob had a positive week. His painting, Old Phillips Studio, sold at the show. Plus he goes home with inspiration that will keep him painting for several months.
The Kilborn workshops focus on Abstracting the Landscape. On the fourth day Bob loosens his normal style.
Afterwards Bob used the same sketches from Taos’ Ledoux Street to capture the scene in his usual style. This one is unfinished, after he adds the final details we’ll post the completed work.

Two Abstracts and a New Adobe Church
Bob recently broke away from his familiar and signature style to do a couple of abstracts.
After considerable coaxing from his wife Bob painted the distinctive 200-year-old adobe church at the Pueblo of Picuris, southeast of Taos. The day we visited numerous members of the Pueblo were working on maintaining the church and grounds. We were fortunate to see the detailed, recently- restored interior.
