John Hughes has been writing for our Hints & Tips column for over three years now, providing advice on everything from painting in the snow to choosing an easel to how to get out of an artist rut. We decided it was finally time to see him in action. So in January, while the valley was covered in a blanket of smog and snow plows scraped the streets, Dale Thompson visited his West Valley studio to watch him paint a winter landscape and discuss his process.
Dale Thompson has a B.A. in Liberal Arts from The Evergreen State College and an Masters degree in communications from Westminster College. Her writing career includes work for a local theatre, journalism in Park City, and freelance contributions for various nonprofit organizations.
