Good Dog!
Danny Ng Shows How to Portray Pets in His Feb. 9 Demo
Danny Ng first started with a small pastel pencil sketch of a humming bird and flower. After finishing the sketch in about 10 minutes, he passed the sketch around the gallery audience so they could get a close-up look of this master's work. Danny next started on a pastel and charcoal sketch of a dog's head and upper body taken from a small magazine ad photo that Danny brought with him. This sketch took all of 25 minutes to complete and had the audience mesmerized as he worked his magic! In addition to the hummingbird and dog sketches, Danny brought several other examples of completed pastel and charcoal animal sketches and books filled with more sketches for the audience to browse through during the demonstration.

It Takes Two to Zentangle--You and Your Pen!
Mary Walker-Baptiste's popular 1-day workshop on Feb. 19 proved quite a draw for Zentangle enthusiasts  trying their skill at creating artistic designs with repetitive patterns. Students were encouraged to let themselves go with the flow. Like the catalog says about this high-end doodling, "There are no mistakes, only opportunities." Thanks to Mary (who took these shots) for the opportunity to peek in on her class.
