I had the opportunity to meet a Master of Trompe l’oeil, William Cochran. Thanks to the Chicago Institute of fine finishes, a small group came to meet, listen and learn some new painting techniques, correct some bad habits, learn some new ones, see color and light differently and appreciate the right paint brushes for the right job. William has some amazing art work, has a great ability to teach and loves what he does. From his community bridge project, to small murals, now painting with glass, William is a true inspiration of following a dream and bringing a vision to life. I hope we meet again.

Now we just need to find some new mural jobs to put to use these new skills. Any one have any ideas?
