Thanks Mary Jo!! Great meeting you and your husband in Santa Cruz and painting with you those 4 days. I hope that Richard, John and Scott will schedule a repeat next year and we can all paint together. Paint On!!!!
Hi Mary Jo, thank you for your friend request, wonderful to have you as a friend!! I really have not studied from J.V., although I have recently purchased his videos ..have not had time to look them over yet. I am basically self taught ...I have taken a few workshops from artists I admire, but it all comes down to brush miles and continuous learning from all the mistakes I make ...which happen to be quite a lot!
Mary Jo, I am pleased to accept your friendship offer. Thanks for your compliments about my paintings. I am still learning a lot from both Johannes and Richard. What I most enjoy is the friendships I have made on this site. Stu
