New Paintings

I've also been "revamping" a few pieces to update the quality to what I, at my current level, feel to be acceptable. One positive, is that my "current level" and expectations are constantly being revised, That means...hopefully I'm improving:-)

Free Accurasee Workshop!

Just thought I'd let you know that I'm going to be teaching a free, all day drawing and painting workshop on Friday April 2nd at the studio of Linda Christensen (1235 Little Hobble Creek Rd, Wallsburg, UT).  It will go from 9-4 with a break for lunch from 12-1.  Might go even another session if people are game...4-7.  

I'll be sharing information on how to use the Accurasee Measurement System for a variety of subject matter.  We'll be drawing or painting in whatever mediums desired and be working from live models, and still-lifes. 
It'll be a great setup and best of all free:-) 

I'll supply everyone that does not already have an Accurasee kit
with trial materials to experiment with.  Of course I'll have kits for
sale as well.

There will be a couple other instructors (not to mention a lot of great artists), so that everyone can get all the help they need.  We'll be doing
the workshop in the studio where Linda does her large religious murals.  It's very roomy and should be able to accommodate quite a few people.  We'll arrange for as many still-lifes and models as necessary.

This will be a LOT of fun.  Please let me know if you'll be able to make it so that we can make arrangements.  contact Bjorn at or call me at 208-403-9358

Thanks so much!

Also the following week, I'll be traveling to a conference in Pasadena, CA to promote the Accurassee Drawing Method. . Here's a link to the conference information. I'll be doing two 3 hour workshops there.
