“The West began to work on Duesberry’s senses, and soon two important aspects evolved: scale and perspective. The openness of the West and its vastness had an effect on her. Duesberry’s paintings after 1987 show her response, conscious or unconscious, to the space around her. How could it not, when this plein air painter spent days in the sun and arrows of New Mexico and the wind and soft hills near Denver’s Chatfield Dam? It is one thing for a studio painter to work from studies done in the Great Outdoors, but another thing entirely for a plan air painter to stand in front of her easel all day and become part of the environment. Of necessity, the scale of her paintings grew to take in the boundless landscape.”

Ann Daley, 2011
