Happy New Year, Looking forward to this year!
Happy 2013 to everyone. Like most people, ever year I make a few resolutions. This year it's about weight loss and only weight loss for me. For my students and anyone who follows my art, I plan to do a whole lot of videos about art and painting and renew my commitment to creating a painting a day. At least five per week.
After an artist block that has lasted during the month of December, I woke up to a new creative day. Maybe it was my excitement during the holiday. Our children and grandchildren can renew the awe of the Christmas Season in all of us. In a sense, because they are so close, we all become children with all the joy and hustle and bustle of the past two months. As I came back to reality, I look forward to 2013 as an opportunity to become a better man, husband, artist and teacher.
Stay tuned for many instructional videos for free and a year of new paintings, both oil and acrylic with a renewed emphasis on improving skills, tools and techniques.
In this Newsletter: January has traditional been a slow season for my art classes. Only eight oil painting classes and one acrylic class this month.
Five new oil paintings making the rounds.
One acrylic painting in Scranton.
Book review on "Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals: A Mixed-Media Workshop"
Next class is in Lancaster, Pa. on Friday, January 11th. I will definitely be there.
