Well, I certainly saw some wonderful examples of Chunky Versals from Lifebook 2016.
Remember I'll be putting that class up on Creative Workshops in January of 2017!
He is the latest painting drying on the easel. It's oil on a canvas panel, 12x12.
I like the purple background. I do do that very often but I like it!

I am really looking forward to going to Donna Downey's studio for a workshop with Melanie Morris.
It's going to be so much fun just being at Donna's studio
Melanie's class is "Fast and Furious" painting. She will show us how to paint fast. I can't wait!
I gave myself 20 minutes on this one.

It is a fact that one of my favorite artists is Robert Burridge. In the past I have traveled many miles to take workshops with him. He truly makes painting fun. Because for me sometimes painting isn't fun. With him there are really no real rules, lots of slinging paint and ending up with something that looks fun. Sometimes they are turkeys but at least it was fun. It's just paper--chunk it!
I do appreciate all my oil painting instruction. And I do love to oil paint but sometimes, for me, it's more stressful than fun. That's because there are rules, rules rules that you have to abide by to get a good painting (composition, value, good drawing, brush strokes, warm and cool colors working together--etc) That is if you want to paint in the classic way. Of course you can sling oil paint too. But for now I think I am going to just sling some acrylic and see what happens. No rules---just fun.

CalligraFun has continued to be my most popular class on Creative Workshops and since I did the promo video 8 years I decided to make another video. My 2016 plans are to update the class with a few new videos--but keeping the ones that are there--all at no extra charge. So I will be working on that soon and I will post it here when I get it finished. I will also send out an email so if you are not on my email list yet--please sign up. You will see that at the top right of the blog.

If you are an oil painter with your ear to the ground then you already know that all the buzz right now is Dreama Tolle Perry's new online class. Registration ends tonight and class officially kicks off January 23rd. Everyone is so excited including me. I took her class here is Jacksonville several years back and painted two paintings that I really liked and enjoyed painting. Her methods are fun and she is a great teacher. Here are the two paintings I painted in the in-person class with her. We'll see how I do in this online class.

Good quotes are everywhere, in magazines and especially on Facebook. Usually there is no tag line or author of the quote. I saw this one in a magazine and thought it would be a good one to write down in my new ReThreaded Journal my son gave me for Christmas. It's a good one.
