If you're in the LA area, please join me for a "One Hour/One Painting" session at Gregg Chadwick's studio next Tuesday evening at 6:30 PM: Studio 15, Santa Monica Art Studios, 3026 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica. Gregg is a marvelous painter and a fellow blogger at Speed of Life. The session will be (discreetly!) videotaped for possible use at the Tricycle magazine's meditation site. The picture we have selected for the occasion, A Balance of Shadows (see detail, below), is especially appropriate for the "slow looking" experience. I think I can promise a richly rewarding hour. Information and reservations with Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org.
