Working in a room with other artists is good food for the painting soul. Even though everyone is quietly working alone, there is a sense of community. Jason Saunders recently began a studio group painting time in his new studio. This past Wednesday night, about 13 of us gathered to paint various still life set ups for about 4 hours. In that kind of setting, it does not matter what your medium is or your level of experience. We're all just artists trying to grow.
