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 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.

Stapleton Kearns - GREAT PLEIN AIR ADVISE!
One of the many blogs I follow is from East Coast artist Stapleton Kearns . He has just posted his sixth in a series on plein air painting. Now there is lots of good stuff out there on painting and painting plein air- but now and again one really hits home - and this is one of them. I highly recommend reading. Don't know if there are more to come.
Visit Stapleton Kearns Blog - this is the first of the series. Follow the others up to date.
