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 just doing it - Go to your room!

I have had the good fortune to take instruction from outstanding artists in Canada and the USA. I continue to work on my own development ( Going to MY room!) . I share, through this blog and workshops, what I have learned and what others have shared with me.

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.

Workshop with the Art Group of the Comox Valley

Finished a two day Preparing for Plein Air workshop with members of the Art Group of the Comox Valley. Great group and very well organized. The venue was the beautiful ocean-front home and gardens of Kate Brown.

The workshop focused on planning, preliminary sketching, value plans and getting ones head in the right place for the challenges of painting on location. The group took to it like ducks to water. Great fun for me.

For anyone interested in this group contact
