Summer painting extravaganza!



Wow, what a fantastically FULL 3 day workshop led by Nettie Spiwack (her piece above) staring the impeccable Courtney! Everyone dialed in their A game and produced some killer work. Looking forward to the start of our regular sessions in September, moving from Thursday to WEDNESDAY nights. Super Hero Saturdays will commence shortly thereafter. Details for our Pinhole Camera workshop with Doug Hanson, Limited Palette workshop with JR Wells and Printmaking workshop with Fotios Zemenides coming soon!

The Seduction of Venus


Kristi absolutely kicked ass and took names with incredible poses for our latest quarterly Paupers' Boudoir session. Full house with extraordinary talent all around (as you can see the finished work from the medium and long poses), great jokes, conversation, pizza and jaw-dropping amazement at seeing Joe paint . . . .WITH A TOOTHPICK!!!

Wu-tang names, Spirit Animals, Flatulence and Greek Cusine


There once was a clan of Paupers, masters of the deadly arts of brush and pencil. Meditating on stuff of extreme metaphysical nature their members were many. Their names are ephemeral yet eternal, some known as the Well-liked Assman, the Partially Formed Transformah, the Lesbian Pimp, the Greasy Chiorboy, the Temporary Spastic and the Curly-haired Slacker. They sought enlightenment, some achieved it, some are still looking. Some need Spirit Guides to help them NOT screw up their paintings. Regular sessions are OUT till the fall! PEACE!

R.I.P. Fuji Finepix S304 (2003-2016)


We welcomed new Guild members Violet & Chris last night for a shenanigan filled evening in which we learned what Lauren's secret obsession was! We also learned that little things make Krista laugh, sucking on Yucca cacti to make brushes seems like a good idea, but actually is not, Dave danced at NEO in the '80's and that Murari doesn't know what the sun is! The evening ended with a bit of melancholia as we put to rest our 13 year old, AA battery operated studio camera. . .Godspeed Snappy McPhoto, you served us well! (these pics courtesy of Muriel!) NEXT WEEK: PASTICHO!
