    Your countdown timer says there's some 4,000 days until this.

    Otherwise, this looks incredibly interesting and useful.

    Highly looking excited about this.

    The Massive Black Foundation Painting with Shawn Barber has been an invaluable resource to me, and I am greatly looking forward to this class.
