NOTE FROM A STUDENT: "Jude, this comes to say how very much I enjoyed your workshop at the Forestry Center, and I think you will be pleased to know I have been putting your teaching to use. I recently purchased a good journal and have just finished my second page, with the topic being my trip to Cape Perpetua yesterday. And yes, I am liking the effect I get with the paints I purchased. This morning I painted my sketches with your book at hand for ideas on how to handle the rocks and ocean especially. The worksop day was so full with the excellent art show, and the added bonus of the John Muir prints - a very inspiring day." ~ Best wishes, Lynda
