“Most of my work comes about because something bursts into my life that moves me,” says Antonio López García.

Find an everyday item that you can draw with intensity and the kind of loving attention that Garcia bring to his subject.

Think about bringing in a half eaten plate of food, a glass, and white linen napkin….crumpled paper, toothbrush, toothpaste….what is worthy of your attention? What will catch the light in an amazing way? Bring in your subject by tomorrow.
