Oriental brush painting workshop

Just returned home from a fabulous one day oriental brush painting workshop.  Everyone was fantastic and so eager to learn this style of art. When 30 people sign up then that is the maximum compliment they can show me.  Here is an image of some of the students, many left before I could round them up for a group photo.  www.darlenekaplan.com
