Aqualung of the streets

I saw this old man walking across from where I put gas in my car. It was a bit of a hot day, middle of the day, and this man was carrying, seemingly, a lot of his belongings with him He seemed overbeared, but determined to reach his place of destination. I called him "Aqualung", with obvious Jethro Tull reference.

Are you interested in learning how to oil paint ALLA PRIMA??

I teach a class in oil painting at Art Center College of Design throughout the year which you might be interested in.

Here is the blurb: Beginning with still life and progressing toward working from a model, this course will give students the opportunity to investigate the structure and design of a painting. Students will develop a range of tools through the exploration of different color palettes and the manipulation of various media with oil paint on a variety of grounds. Creativity and experimentation are encouraged to help students acquire a personal vocabulary. Here are some examples of my students' work:
