Here is the painting I started of my two sisters and myself.  I had run into a problem with the sister on the left.  In the original photo, she had a big smile on her face.  I wanted a different atmosphere so I needed a serious expression.  Luckily, I spent the holiday weekend with her and was able to take some photos from the same angle.  I brought a copy of the photograph so I would get it right.  Now I can finish this painting.  

Two exciting things to share.  I will be demonstrating using the watercolor sticks on a gesso textured surface on Monday for the Fine Arts League of Cupertino (FALC) so if you are in the area, be sure and come to the meeting.  You can check their website for time and directions.

I am also going to do a two day workshop for the SUNNYVALE  ART GALLERY on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27.  We will be focusing on ways to create texture with aluminum foil and creating printing plates with foam and some interesting tools.  If you like texture in your work, this should be very exciting.  The location is on El Camino in Sunnyvale, California.  You can call them at 408-737-8188 for more details if you are interested.
