Saturday Morning Zen: CANCELLED.





The place in Mill Valley that was hosting our Saturday morning drawing/painting workshop is no longer willing, canceling our sessions, much to the disappointment of the regulars who attended. I am sad, yet I am confident something else will open up.

Ironically, two years ago I bought a large amount of charcoal paper to be used specifically for this workshop. The drawing below is rendered on my very last sheet.



Thanks so much to Lenny Lee for putting the workshops together at Mill Valley Art and Paper. It was a great run!
:::UPDATE:::

my car was stolen while I was in Chicago during the holidays. the entire set of drawings I did during the two years of my "saturday morning zen" life drawing workshop were in the trunk. All those drawings gone, like tears in the rain. :)

Elvgren sketches

Someone sent me these beautiful, rare, Elvgren sketches. These were most likely done in the late 5o's, and probably studies for his paintings. Simple line work, minimal shadows, gorgeous drawings.
