Becky Gebser… today’s featured artist

Good morning all… a couple of weeks ago, I participated in a 10 day art challenge. I had to post one piece of my art work every day, for 10 days.

I had a lot of fun doing this and once I had completed the challenge, I needed to nominate another artist to take the next turn. And I chose Becky Gebser. She accepted reluctantly (to be honest, it is a bit daunting in the beginning) but for the past 10 days she has shown a variety of her paintings and drawings

When I asked if she’d like me to show her work on this blog, she agreed.

Becky Gebser and her husband first came to Merida for a visit with his parents, Su and Walter Gebser who were long-time members of Merida’s international community. Becky got to know her way around the city by accompanying her mother-in-law to various events and get-togethers, and indeed, this is how I met her. When Su and Walter’s health failed, they wanted to remain in Merida, so Becky and her husband moved here full time to help out. Becky and I discovered our mutual enjoyment of painting, and we’ve had great conversations about favourite painters and so on. We have never painted together though… something we hope to do when we are able to once again move freely about.
Becky likes to work in different styles and mediums… Enjoy!
