away.  Joe has long been a supporter of not only Margaret, but also
the arts in general.  We will miss him!  Our condolences to the
family.
PAINTING FROM PHOTOGRAPHS
Not all photographs will make a good painting.  Often a little "artistic
license" is necessary.  With this in mind, think outside the box, and pick
out the parts of the photo you want to depict, and not those parts you think
are unnecessary.  Is that trash receptacle in the middle of the photo
necessary to get your ideas across?  Probably not.  Don't paint it!  Too
many trees? Remove them (with your brush) or "plant" some more if your
foreground is sparse or empty.  Do a preliminary sketch if necessary, but
learn to see not only how things are, but how you would like them to be.  
Above all, if you have a recognizable person in your photo and you plan
on using that image, get a model release.  This applies mostly if you are
planning on exhibiting or selling the image.
