Building Your Art Skills … for greater mastery and heightened joy.
When our struggling economy in 2008 contributed to a slump in my art career, I turned bad times into productive times by focusing on strengthening my weakest skill, COLOR. My goal was to become skillful enough to mix colors that were specifically what I wanted. I was tired of settling for colors that were only somewhat acceptable. I didn’t have the skill to know how to mix the colors I truly wanted in my painting. The absolute joy I experience now when mixing pigments, playing with new color combinations and focusing on what colors will best express the story I’m telling, is a bonus I hadn’t expected. Never, did I think I would be leading others along the journey toward mastering color. Life is full of surprises when lived with curiosity is a constant companion. What would my paintings be like if I learned a new technique? What would my drawings look like if I tried a different tool?
My desire is to share my journey, and the joy of my journey, with as many artists and possible.
To share as much as I can to as many as I can, I have created three different subscriptions available as online resources; Free Plan, Basic Plan, Masters Plan.
I invite you to join me as I explore the world with pen and brush. Today’s amazing technology, and tiny video cameras, enable me to bring you along as I walk the streets of Paris, climb the mountains of California and paddle down the rivers of the United Kingdom.
