  1. Paul: Sorry for the incorrect caption. I’m including a correction in the e-newsletter. Some say you are much more handsome in a pink shirt and I should have known it was you.

    Cirrus: A number of the artists have books, catalogs, and DVDs and if you check out their websites you can find out how to order. Ken Auster has a beautiful new catalog of his San Francisco paintings, for example, and other artists have instructional books and recorded programs.
