Downtown Calvert_WORKSHOP news

"Downtown Calvert, Texas"__8x10___ $350 unframed__CLICK TO SEE BRUSHWORK
Saturday was a workshop day. My first in Calvert, Texas. Calvert is a neat old Victorian town on HWY 6 , between Waco and College Station/Bryan. It's not a ghost town, but each of these old buildings houses restaurants, shops and galleries. We met at Sonny Moss' Pottery gallery (beautiful work, Sonny! I love the piece I bought!), and chilled out after several hours in the field, starting at sunrise. I had a WONDERFUL and FUN group of 11 guys and gals...good painters ALL! This was a very strong group of "draw-ers", so I almost put them to sleep with a lesson on perspective. Part of the sleepiness was that we were reclined all over Sonny's sofas, and it was after a hearty meal at The Wooden Spoon, which is the yellow building in my painting above. I painted this one after our afternoon siesta....more about all that tomorrow!
Remember to check Tanner's auctions on The Texas Louvre today! Only two weeks to get great small paintings for micro prices! Help a college kid's project! See the galleries to "buy it now" BEFORE the works go to auction.
