Last weekend while on my photowalk - I happened across the Capitol Art Center. This is Michael one of the instructor/proprietors there and he agreed to sit quickly for a portrait with some of his figure pieces behind him.
The Capitol Art Center in Sacramento provides classes as well as showings by various artists. As well as participating in Second Saturday.
Here's some links - if you have the want/need for some good art classes and are in the Sacramento area - Michael is a great guy and looks to have some good stuff going on downtown.
