Outstanding issue!!  

Especially enjoyed "Painting the Mouth" and of course, being from Philadelphia, thrilled to see the article about Al Gury, who has laid the foundation of the exceptional art education of so many successful artists who were lucky enough to attend the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
