Draw Madison went to Paoli yesterday and it was a beautiful day for sketching. Lots of folks out enjoying the great weather. Very interesting current exhibit at the Artisan Gallery there and I was thrilled to buy a small painting by Kelly Hoppman whose work I've admired for a long time. Her paintings are surreal in subject matter and painted beautifully in a fairly realistic style. It was part of a series of paintings done in collaboration with a poet. John Ribble and Chris Gargan collaborated on a great painting of a big brown bear as artist. My watercolor sketch is of the Artisan Gallery and restaurant sketched from the other side of the Sugar River in a Strathmore Multi-Media Journal that is great for watercolor.
