GO TO YOUR ROOM ! I borrowed this phrase from the recently deceased Canadian painter Robert Genn who believed that there is only so much we can learn about how to paint from the many fine instructors and resources available today. The true learning comes from going off on our own and doing it - Go to your room!
I have had the good fortune to take instruction from outstanding artists in Canada and the USA. I am now focusing on my own development ( Going to MY room!) and sharing what I have learned and continue to learn. I created this blog primarily for those attending my workshops to keep in touch and to further share as we grow together. If others are interested in following that would be great.
Enjoy the journey.

My First Daily Paint Works Art Byte Tutorial
I was very pleased to be asked to participate in the Daily Paint Works ArtByte tutorial program. ArtBytes are low cost/ free quickie tutorials on a variety of subjects presented by Daily Paint Works artists. They are a recent addition to DPW and have already become quite popular.
My first Art Byte describes my acrylic studio and my set up. It is free for viewing. I will follow that up with my set up for working acrylic plein air, for studio and plein air water-mixable oils. These will all be free to view. I will see how these go and if I think there is enough interest I will get into my approach to working with these mediums.
If you are interested please hit the ArtByte logo on the sidebar.
As for what else I am doing - still working away at improving my comfort with portraiture and figurative work. Will up date shortly.
