This couple has to be among the most talented artists ever to have visited India. Going over their work at their website is a sheer delight. I marveled at their brushstrokes. Unlike many other artists whose paintings on the net can only be seen as a small, low res images, Scott and Susan have given close ups of many of their works and God bless them that they did. As an artist I can spend long evenings imagining the movement of the brush and it's play on the support, just as one might imagine traversing a beautiful landscape whilst listening to Mozart. I dearly would love to see their paintings in person.

What a contrast between immense talent and skill and a mere preening mediocrity.

Didn't you just love their travelog? I was so entranced that I sent it to several friends. Scott's photography is outstanding as well.
Additionally they both are really nice down to earth people... despite being extra-ordinarily talented. Scott is a very good teacher as well... as you probably know not all great artists are good teachers, but Scott is.
If you ever get a chance to take a class with him... jump on it!!
