flr 1During an art class that I took in college, we were taken outside on campus and told to draw a tree.  By the end of the class, I had filled the sketch pad with the furrows and shadows of one branch of an enormous oak.  For me, the experience presented itself in the details of the image.  The instructor was, in fact, pleased with this result as he explained to the class that an object … Read More
