Just wanted to thank the Boys and Girls Club of Linda Vista, CA and RAW Natural Born Artists for allowing me to be a part of the event today. I got to demo some live painting and teach some painting techniques to some amazing kids! --there's definitely some competition in the art world budding at this center. I'll post a pic of the group when I get a chance.
Welcome back! The press is starting to roll in as we continue forward with the planning for the 2011 U.S. Live Art Tour and the release of 'The Fruits of Our Labor'! Got a nice featured interview here at author Robert Graham's site.
