6x6 original oil
If you are an artist I invite you to come paint with me during my PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP on November 17th and 18th. This workshop is for everyone, from ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS to professional artists.

I teach the basics as well as things no other instructors teach. For example I will show you how to look at the landscape with the eye of an artist, to find the “magic” in the scene. And I’ll show you how to capture that magic on canvas and make your paintings “keepers.”

We will start by painting at a movie location that has been used in countless movies and TV shows including the 60's television series "Star Trek, "Bonanza", "F-Troop", "Have Gun, Will Travel", "The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin", "The Big Valley", "Broken Arrow", "Buffalo Bill Jr.", "The Cisco Kid", "The High Chaparral", "Kung Fu", "Maverick", "The Wild, Wild West" and many more. In fact a movie will be filming nearby as we paint.

Don’t wait; this workshop is already filling up fast. The cost is $100 for one day, or $180 for both days. Check my website for full details and how to enroll:

I hope you can join me; this is going to be an outstanding workshop!

Today’s thought to smile about:
Your pet, curled up and sleeping next to you

Thank you for sending the show catalog with the painting I won. I'm so thrilled to have the piece and will enjoy looking at it again and again.
I perused the booklet last evening after I opened my mail and enjoyed every page. Absolutely beautiful paintings! I hope your show is a huge success and I'm sure it will be.
Your workshop sounds so useful and fun. I wish I could be there.
I'm enjoying your painting I won! What a lovely juicy piece. Thank you again for giving your fans the chance to win something from you. I'm so thrilled to be the one who got my name picked. Thank you, thank you! I feel very blessed.
The way you portray trees is truly inspiring to me. Can you tell me the title of the painting? I'd like to write it on the back of the panel if you don't mind.

Enjoy your work as always. Your brushstrokes in this painting remind me of the brushstrokes of (early) Kinkade when he painted plein air.
See "The Artist in Nature Thomas Kinkade and the Plein Air Tradition" On p. 25... "color density in nature is higher in key than most artists realize..."
