Back To 6" Squared
Weekend of art. Friday night lecture with Dan McCaw and his sons, John and Danny, was so thought provoking. Dan has a soulful approach to art and is so very generous to share his journey and the wonderful work of the McCaw artists. I was moved. Saturday started my two day workshop with Frank Gardner. The three paintings attached are from his workshop that I did from my photos. Saturday night John Asaro gave a slide presentation of his work with the human figure and the color of light. What an amazing body of work. Back to it on Sunday with Frank Gardner. In a side note he reminds me of Colin Firth. It was a day of values and temperatures. I welcomed some frustration in finding my way in the little landscape. I got some wonderful words of encouragement, but more, I got extremely helpful advice and direction. And in and around everything was Randy Higbee making sure we were fed and wined. I give this Fine Art Collaborative a thumbs up and look forward to the next one. A very special thanks to Matt Carrillo and Tom Balderas who worked very very hard to make this a great art happening. So many fine artists in one place, sent the energy level through the roof. It is an amazing high!
