i am very excited! - i'm getting ready to take a three day plein air workshop with john budicin.  it's being held in zionsville..about an hour north..so i have the option of staying up there with my former daughter-in-law or driving back and forth each day..depends..in the meantime, i decided to work outside yesterday..set up in the back yard while listening to Indiana clinch the baseball game to get them in the college world series..lots of yelling of course!!...anyway...i am going to try and soak up all this fellow's knowledge and try things his way..i'll be taking pics and posting..moreso than i have lately!
