Just wanted to say a few things including some pictures of our day in the studio today - the gist of the workshop is for me to share my steps, from taking photos to looking at them on my computer to choosing one to paint then carrying through the process. The students are urged to use their laptops to paint from - Vince Fazio, the director of the Sedona Arts Center, is in the class every day, helping those who would rather paint from a printed out photo - not to mention helping with a thousand other things that makes my job more dedicated to painting and coaching. I couldn't have done it without him. This is Vince, who joined in on painting as well.
Another point I'd like to underline is I am thrilled to have been able to schedule this week in New York, as well as another in November in Hilton Head Island and New York again next May. That is it. I appreciate those who ask when I'm coming to their neck-of-the-woods, but I know my limits. I'm a painter first and perhaps down the road, I'll take on more of the workshops - but those you see listed on the right column are it.
Now for some glimpses of our day, which was extremely rewarding for me.
