Source for Quality Canvases

Karen asked me to share this resource for high-quality stretched canvas and canvas covered panels:

Signature Canvas
10324 W 70th St
Shawnee, KS 66214
(913) 268.2624
(800) 420.3434

She was recently in their store and found that they had a big selection of clearance canvases of good sizes starting at $5! They also make custom lots of stretched canvas using environmentally-friendly gallery quality materials, and each canvas includes an attached artist's bio card at no cost.

New model, new pose schedule!

Tomorrow we'll be drawing Joshua, who is new to Buena Vista, but not new to figure drawing as he is an art student.

Also, we're going to try a little bit of a trick for the pose schedule: adding some short poses in the middle to wake our brains up when we might be getting a bit sluggish mid morning!

The schedule will be:

3's (wake up!)

After drawing, let me know what you think or shoot me an email.

Winter Weather

As the regulars know: we meet every single Wed, except in winter when the Shawnee Mission School District closes for inclement weather. That is the case today. I'll look forward to drawing with you all next week! The model will be Rosamarie. It's her first time modeling a Buena Vista, but you may have seen her on local runways or in the paper.
