Hello everyone!

I wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying learning, growing and working on my first online course which will be "Powerful Design and Personal Color" in Cold Wax/Oils. Although I have taught this workshop here and abroad and enjoyed meeting so many wonderful artists face to face, I wish I could clone myself and be teaching in 15 places at once! I will of course continue to do the live workshops I so enjoy (still some openings in NYC in 2019). However, since I can only be in one place at a time (sigh), my hope is to create a highly affordable, readily available, "go at your own pace" comprehensive online "workshop" which mimics as closely as possible my live 4 day workshops. Above is a photo of the way my studio looks now -- do I dare move those lights or tripods out of position? Heck no! So much calibration has to be done to make sure everything is clear and well lit. Sigh. (:)

This has of course taken a bit of time away from my own personal painting, but that's ok. I think there's a time and place for everything under the sun. (I'm sure you've heard that before!) Our schnauzers have been very well behaved. They're so much fun to have here that I will definitely have some bonus footage in the online course featuring just them!
As a subscriber, be sure to email me any burning questions you might have that you'd like addressed in the course if you are a cold wax/oil artist, though I promise you it is going to be very comprehensive and therefore will take me most of the summer to create.

Thanks to all of you who have purchased my STUDIO NOTES, 2015-2016, Vol 1!! If you enjoyed it, even in a small way, would you please email me and tell me what you enjoyed most?! I'd love to to hear from you ;) THANKS!!

Happy Painting!
