April 2 - May 6, 2005
I am self-taught. I heard about Basic Inquiry accidentally from a friend although I had seen the name on the building before. I always thought it was some philosophical gathering place. I joined in the early 90's and taught myself to draw figures. Then I took an anatomy class at Basic Inquiry with Gordon Finlay who persuaded me to paint in oil. I was also lucky to run into a group of painters who started an informal figure painting group that later developed into the Friday night session. Most of the paintings shown here are from those sessions.
