Dan Thompson

I just got word from Dan Thompson that he will be teaching the figure at Scottsdale Artist School May 16 - 20, 2011. I had taken a 10 day workshop from Dan back in 2007 and had asked him to come to SAS. I am very happy that he is. Dan is a great guy, a great teacher and artist, too!
Besides being an accomplished artist he Co-founded the Grand Central Academy of Art and Co-found The Janus Collaborative. He teaches at Janus, as well. Looking forward to seeing him again!

Art for Art's Sake

Just wanted to say that this blog is about art. So no more political stuff. I'll rant elsewhere. I recently applied for readmission to ASU. They have some drawing classes I want to take. It is very hard to find the kind of instruction I want, so I figure I have to do it on my own. At least at ASU they have resources and Life Drawing classes that I want. I might even finish my BFA. Here's a few pics from a while ago.

Pink lady and Onions

Still struggling with lighting issues in the studio. Not having natural light is very difficult for me. Here is a still life and the pink lady again. I reworked some of the background and shirt for this. Don't know if anything will ever really feel completely finished...
