An Amazing Workshop

Jeff Gogué's workshop "Business of Painting" was a great way to test out our new facility.  I don't think that it could have gone any better, the students, the teaching, and the paintings were so great.  We are scheduled to have a DVD out soon for those of you that missed it.  Here are some pictures.

Our New Facility

Here are a few pictures of the new facility.  We are moving in on Friday and can't wait.  This space is 2 1/2 times larger than the building that we're in now.  It has two restrooms, storage galore, HOT water, a gallery space, specialized paint rooms with proper ventilation, and 18' ceilings... need I say more.  This has been quite the feat getting this place ready. The last six weeks have been go go go... painting, building, cleaning, and lots of planning.  We have had so much help along the way, special thanks to Tim Cayton and his crew Guyle Plensky and Erik Sanchez. Without these guys none of this would have been possible.
