Magical! This photography stuff is very challenging. 
Beauty can't be rushed and
timing is essential. Learning to slow down and 
really LOOK around you can help us in more than just painting.

Good Morning….. I am currently working on a blog for all friends and students and fellow painters.
If I get this thing to work correctly, we can have a ball with it… I would like all of you to open the blog often… I will have lessons, paintings, other students paintings , exercises and lots of good stuff. I think this would be great for everyone to share ideas and help one another.
Thanks much..
work in progress
