I've got an Original Gaka!!

Went around to Gaka's place today and had a ball.

Gaka, you're so generous to share your knowledge the way you did and boy, speaking of generous . . . I got a CD with all his images, a book and some photocopies of his work!!! I'm over the moon!! My shout Tuesday mate!!!!

I've only ever seen him "in action" for about an hour before and there was a huge leap in my ability then . . . .well I got TWO hours today (besides the rest of the time surfin WC with him!! lol) and I can feel an absolute quantum leap ahead. WOOOHOOOOOO!!!

I sat and watch this guy paint with a big cheesy grin on my face for two . . whole . . . hours!! and at the end I GOT THE ORIGINAL!!!! (*forgot to get it signed* . . must remember Tuesday!!)

I learnt SSOOOOOOOO much today, truly, and can't wait to get into it . . . can't do too much over the next few weeks coz I'm moving etc but I can fiddle just doing little things here and there. . . .Boy am I gonna practice.

Thanks HEAPS mate!!! You don't know how much I appreciated it

Oh . . . the original that took two hours?? you wanna see??

OK this is it . . . . yep . . . .one leaf!!!! ROFLMAO

Good on you Crumby!!!

What a kind and generous soul Gaka must be. I am a great believer in "universal knowledge" and that the gifts bestowed upon us belong also to those who come after us.... I personally have learned so much from mentors and other's like Gaka who have been willing to share and impart their knowledge like so many here at WC.... I love it when I hear stuff like this....
