Z in Fallbrook!

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!       

Just finished!

The action started!

Turning the piece sideways!


  1. He is amazing, how lucky to be able to see him paint in person!

  2. Sherry, you are SO LUCKY to see the artist at work - twice! I wish he'd come to my neck of the woods.
