About a quarter-century ago, I was a student of Max Hendler at Cal State Northridge ("So Simple, Yet So Difficult to Arrive At," by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, May 19). It was a good time. Hans Burkhardt was also teaching there.
I remember Hendler's super-realistic still-life that he would spend a couple of years painting. He was an inspirational teacher and continues to be a great artist. His encouragement has brought me great satisfaction, success and happiness as an artist.
