This is the 4th year Simon has come to share his wisdom with us, lots of wine, food ideas and ink flowed over the course of the weekend. We worked hard to make ugly drawings in ink and pencil, and were all wildly successful. If we were too good, you would get this treatment: your brush, attached to a 3 ft pole taped to your arm, Mary was the only one who suffered this invaluable lesson, the rest of us were in no danger of making anything too pretty!
On Saturday, before the class started, we went to the Murakami Exhibit, it was my 4th time, but seeing it with Simon was like seeing it for the first time, he made me understand in a whole different way, as he often does. When he comes through town next year, we will organize a group tour of the Art Institute with Simon asour docent.
Thank you Simon, we can't wait for you to return!
