Peggy Trigg
Questa, New Mexico

Peggy is an impressionist landscape painter based in New Mexico. Her ongoing journey with art began as a small child. She was inspired by wonderful art teachers while growing up, and in turn decided to become an art teacher herself. Peggy spent most of her career shaping young artists at the advanced high school level, imparting values, strength and perseverance upon them. Now in retirement, Peggy has turned her energy to a full-time art career for the first time. She works in a loose, gestural style with brightly-toned layers of paint, capturing the colors and feelings of the southwest. When she’s not making art, she likes to go hiking around Taos, always seeking inspiration for her next painting.

Hope you like my collection of loose and impressionistic landscapes from the Southwest. I love painting the landscape and I’m most often outside dealing with the elements. Often, if you look closely you might see a mark made by a tree branch accidentally hitting my canvas or of the slight prints made by a New Mexico horsefly walking across the wet paint. Painting in the wild helps ma to be loose and creative. I love it..hope you will too!

Come see me at the Los Gatos Plein Air Festival in Los Gatos, California. This is a juried event with 34 national painters creating plein air paintings over 4 days. The paint-out is located in Los Gatos and the surrounding countryside including the beautiful California coast, just south of San Francisco. I intend to spend most of my time on the coast! I can't wait! The festival will run from June 13 through June 17. To see more information about the event, please visit http://www.lgpleinair.org/. Please check back in a couple weeks for some "beach" paintings!
