backing up

AJR Demo Portrait

just a bit. I have been carrying this one around with me for quite a while. In July I posed for a couple of Anthony Ryder's Summer workshops - one drawing, one painting.

It was an incredible experience. The classes were excellent, but what I found to be truly rewarding was the time spent in the additional sessions with Tony and several other special friends. Those moments are what I see when I look at Tony's painting.

More soon. Late.

cletus called

me up the other day.. wondering why I had stopped posting. I tried to explain to him that I've been meaning to - that I'm in a bit of a transition.. He wouldn't buy it.

Eventually, I agreed to post if he would be willing to come and give me a little paint mixing demo. I've heard rumors about his wizard-like ability to mix it up.

He arrived with a tube of paint and some beer. He sat down long enough for me to take a few pictures and witness his skill. It was astonishing. I'm excited to be able to share this technique with you.

..and especially to be blogging again. There are a few waiting in the wings. Happy Halloween! Late
