    Thanks to Todd for his generous donation of a "Todd Bonita Fine Art Gift Certificate". We raised much needed funds for our Scholarship Committee, and one lucky attendant got either a FREE Workshop day with Todd or towards Todd Bonita Fine Art.

    Super. He's a funny, smart and very gifted artist, classically trained. He made each "art soul" feel special, I think. Look for the pictures coming in later today, and more about a special invitation to the opening of Todd's new art gallery on Perkin's Cove on Memorial Weekend.

    Excellent demonstration, thoroughly impressed by Todd's engaging mannerisms. As a newbie to the medium, his process seems so logical and simplistic; mastering it will be something else altogether...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
