# 92 School Teacher

July's theme will be "Portraits and Genre", "genre" is the correct term for "paintings of people doing everyday things". Aspiring to become more known for my portraits, now is as good a time as any to begin warming up my brush to paint more of them. During the late 80's and early 90's, I had the good fortune to study with a group of very talented portrait artists. To this day, it was their knowledge and shared skill, combined with the influence of Franz Hals, Joaquin Sorrolla, and John Singer Sargent, that I consider my finest teachers in art. JLC
