Cincinnati Art Club Demo and Talk

I will be giving a talk and painting demonstration at the Cincinnati Art Club this coming Friday, April 20th at 8:00. There is a social hour, and dinner before the talk, see info below.

I am very honored to have been invited to speak to the club about my work. I was so honored I thought I should really do something special for my demonstration. Of course the first thing that came to mind was that I do a full length, life-size nude self portrait as a demo. Has this ever been done before? This may be the first!

The nice thing is that I do not have to worry about what to wear, I can just show up au natural. All I need to bring are my paints and a full length mirror.
This demo will be an Expose' of my "work".

The Art Club has just contacted me to say that they really like my still lifes and have suggested that I do a demonstration of a still life lay-in rather than working on the nude.
So, I will discuss my training, the Boston School, and my materials and method. I hope you will join me at the Club for this event.

The Cincinnati Art Club is located at the foot of Mt. Adams at the corner of Parkside Place and Martrin Drive.  Our nearby neighbors are Playhouse in the Park and Krohn Conservatory and the Studio of Richard Luschek.
