Here’s what’s new:

I added a “Subscribe” feature at the bottom of the Home page. If you want to be notified of additions to this site, just include your e-mail address and you will be notified automatically.

Penny Meyer allowed me to video her tutorial at SCAHMS. I have included it here.

Also new is the interview with Kjeld Buchholtz. Find it here.

And I have added another category to the site: history.

We are only days away from being able to spring on the “flat” community a resource I think has a great deal to offer the art.

And most recently, Penny Meyer’s final installment on painting Gary Dombrowski’s “Lincoln” has been posted. I think you will agree with me: it is a masterpiece. It is also an auction piece for Artist’s Preservation Group—which means most of us will never see it apart from the photos provided in the tutorial.

Finally, I received my first British Flat Figure Society Journal in the mail today. I joined the Society a few weeks ago, and have enjoyed looking through the back issues (made available on line to all members). It is not the first issue I’ve seen. I purchased some flats from someone in England through eBay and they, to my surprise, included three issues out of the kindness of their heart. I love the journal. I wish I had a hard copy of every issue. It would be great for some ambitious person to take all the back issues to produce a hardbound volume or two or three. They contain everything related to the art.

    It is with great sadness the MFCA Family has to report the passing of Vern Minkwitz. Vern was a long-time member of MFCA, an avid painter, teacher, and participant in many figure shows. He had a wealth of knowledge of history, modeling materials, and technique. He is well known for the quality of his flat painting, even after making the move from oils to acrylics. The modeling community will miss him.
