Join this 4-day workshop taught by David Limrite from October 7th-10th.

    Always love your blogs. Beautiful and inspiring. I live in Lake Arrowhead, but always long for SLO and the surrounding communities. Especially the population of talent and your store.

    That said, do you send supplies? In particular flat pieces of charcoal for shading?
