What a treat it was to see Joseph Zbukvic in Fallbrook, California again. He is here to teach a 5-day workshop that I didn't find out about soon enough this time to get a spot. I was in his Fallbrook workshop in 2013 and posted about that experience in two parts, Z Workshop! Part 1 with a link to Part 2. Luckily for me, Joseph was very generous and agreed to paint a piece as a fundraiser for the Fallbrook School of the Arts. I was able to get tickets for this sold out demonstration. After a full day of teaching, still with some jet lag, Joseph painted a gorgeous, full sheet view of Venice. It was wonderful to see him paint in person since I didn't get a coveted place in his workshop. I was also very happy to reconnect with some friends at the demo, and I met two new Facebook friends I had only known online. When Joseph finished the piece he auctioned it off himself to the audience there. The price kept going UP, finally ending at $4,000!
