It was a beautiful day today so I headed down to the canyon after work. I ran into Frank Ordaz, a very fine painter from Auburn. I had corresponded over the net a bit with Frank a couple of weeks ago because we had run into each other on James Gurney's excellent blog. It is astonishing to me that we could come across each other on a painting blog that's written on the east coast (I think) and then actually be at the same place, doing the same thing a couple of weeks later. Anyhow, Frank is a fine painter with a lot of insight and his blog is well worth a visit.
