Oakland Museum: View From Sculpture Garden

After my monthly workshop at the Oakland Museum, with John Muir Laws and his Bay Area Nature Journal Club, I stayed to sketch in the beautiful sculpture garden. There are lovely trees and plantings, colorful sculptures and interesting urban views. The building with the flag atop it is the County Courthouse on the next block.

I also visited the fabulous “Summoning Ghosts: The Art of Hung Lui exhibit.” The show features several rooms of her very large paintings plus early sketchbooks and painting studies completed in China before she came to the U.S. in 1984. The film of her painting with luscious juicy paint (and her signature drips) made me want to run to the studio and pick up a brush.

      Thanks Carol. He’s an amazing, funny and wonderful teacher. I’ve learned so much from the classes and they’re FREE! (Though most of us donate something to the cause). He’s so dedicated to nature journaling and has figured out so many new ways of seeing and drawing how things in nature work. Jana
