I like what one of the workshop participants said to Elio: "This workshop just blew me away, she said, I had no idea that I could possibly learn so much from you in one week." Elio is popular with artists because he doesn't dumb anything down for you, he zooms in like a laser on things that need improvement and he gives credit where credit is due. He'll be staying over in Oregon for awhile longer and I hope to paint with him again in Hillsboro. He seems to like Oregon as much as we like him, so he'll also be back next year.
