My Book

Finally after many attempts to get this book published, I decided to do it myself and have it exactly the way that I want it. I will post when it is available and you will be able to buy it from Blurb on line. It will be $56.95 through Blurb. It will be 8X10" hard cover, about 160 pages and the name, at least at this point, will be,
"REY'S ANATOMY, Notes from a Teacher". It will be a mix of images and some helpful tips and many anatomical images from drawings to my ecorche's, The same ecorche's that are on this site except labeled. Please pass this information on. I should have the first books up for sale in September or October 2009. I have a show of my new paintings this November in South Pasadena at the South Pasadena Gallery and I am hoping to have some to sell there at the opening night, on the 14th. Thanks for all of the support, Rey

Florence, Italy 2009

I got back from my Florence trip with a group of people that wanted to draw and experience Florence with me. I have to say that the city was more than anything I could have ever dreamed of. Every artist should make the pilgimage to this great city, the birthplace of the Renaissance..or Rinascimento,as they say in Italy. I did demos and talked about anatomy, my area of expertise, and perspective, another one of my loves...Florence is the birthplace of mathematical perspective...yes, there is brilliance all around you literally everywhere in this amazing city. We all stayed at the Bernini Palace Hotel right by the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery...we were right in the middle of everything and everything seemed to be at arms length! Rey 809
