Starting in December 2012, I have been taking part of a newly formed Painters Critique Group.  This group was started by my fellow artist and friend Cedar Lee.  The objective of this group was to bring together other professional and local artists to receive and provide feedback on their current art projects.  This group has been meeting once a month since it has started and each time I have walked away feeling inspired and excited to pursue my next painting.  Each of these talented artists have a unique and original point of view which helps when, I for one, have been staring at a painting-in-progress all alone in my studio, they can see things I may have missed or offer helpful ideas.

I am so proud to be a part of this new group and I hope it lasts for years to come.  Recently, the San Diego Union-Tribune ran an article about the North County Painters Critique Group.  You can read the article HERE.
