Friday, after everything imaginable is packed in the van, I'll head to Bloomington, Indiana to give a YUPO workshop. It will be like a homecoming for me since I graduated from Indiana University there. It's such a beautiful city with the campus only a couple of blocks from the workshop, and they made a reservation for me in a lovely bed and breakfast - quite a treat for me. This YUPO painting of a Cincinnati gorilla is from the archives, created about ten years ago. It shows how texture and vivid colors get to show off so well on the slick YUPO surface.

There are twenty artists taking the workshop, and I'm so looking forward to seeing all the beauty they create. We'll be using watercolor on the YUPO, and the possibilities are endless. Check back next week for our results.
