Initially, my premise for going to Lazy Days was essentially to check out the booth the Carolina Mix Media Guild had installed. After chatting with my good friend Jeanne at the booth, I also ran into a few of the folks I hadn’t seen since one of the two meetings I actually attended this past year.
Moreover, I happened upon a former instructor of mine whose work I absolutely prize: Woody Chaimongkol. His charcoal dust technique is impeccable and I was lucky enough to have taken one of his first courses at Jerry’s Art-a-Rama here in Raleigh.
His Web site (woodycharcoal.com) is currently defunct, but I think I’ll encourage him to get a few of his pieces up and showcased -his work is too good not to be seen.
