The opportunity to meet Roos came about after I purchased one of her fantastic plein air paintings. During a back and forth email exchange about the purchase, she mentioned that she would soon be in the US to paint at the Carmel festival. She invited me to come and paint with her, an invitation that she extended to other American friends as well. Since Sacramento is only about 200 miles away from Carmel, I knew I couldn't miss it.
What a great afternoon it was. Meeting Roos was a thrill and to paint with her was just the icing on the cake. She was as charming and fun as I could have imagined, all the while speaking perfect English with a slight accent and a dry and wonderful sense of humor. I won't forget the experience of painting with Roos Schuring for a long time, I can assure you! What a treat!
