Thirty Things You Don't Know About Me

#27 - I am not a landscape painter.

I know, you must think I am crazy. But to be perfectly honest, I would much rather paint "things" ... boats, umbrellas, silver spoons, flowers, mason jars, buoys and a diet coke can! I enjoy painting "things" much more than landscapes. Besides, there are a million really good landscape artists in the world. 

Occasionally I find a landscape scene that I can't resist to paint. I found this cypress tree on a morning walk on the beach in Ventura. I saw the tip of the tree from the beach and headed inward. It's beautiful and located about fifty feet from the shoreline. I love it!

In a few days I am releasing my 2015 workshop schedule. I am coming to Cape Cod, Atlanta and Richmond in 2015. Plus you can paint and stay with me in Ventura, CA at the beach house! Click here for more information!

I am also offering Monday Online Studio painting classes beginning October 2014. Join me each month as we paint boats, roosters, glass, beach scenes, umbrellas, etc. with a palette knife! Click here to find out more.
