Ridgeline Targeted for Wind Farm, oil by Marjorie Kramer,Vermont, USA

I am a painter, I use oils and draw the figure with charcoal.  
I spent years in New York City going to Cooper Union, helping to start 
the New York Studio School in the sixties, and then just lived there as 
an artist.
I came to Vermont to paint and bought land here while it was 
very cheap. I show in NYC and Vermont, and see painting more as a 
calling than a business.
Redstockings Artists was the name of our group, I've been composting, 
recycling and gardening organically for decades. Virginia Woolfe, 
Simone de Beauvoir are people I study as well as Piero della Francescha  and John Constable.
Most of the galleries I've shown in have been  cooperative, ambitious ones.  Bowery Gallery in Chelsea, NYC for example. I teach drawing and painting in the Vermont State College  system, at Johnson State College two days a week as an adjunct  professor.
