The Laws of Lifetime Growth

This is one of those books with advice I would like to have given my 20-year old self. I cannot recommend The Laws of Lifetime Growth highly enough. Bravo and my heart-felt thanks to authors, Dan Sullivan and Catherine Nomura.

How many times have you found yourself wishing you could paint more loosely and with more expressive brushstrokes? Don't give up and pitch your paint brushes. I am confident that I can help you make some real progress, gain confidence and have a great time doing it.
Some of my objectives are to help you see and understand edges-which ones are important to include and which ones to leave out-paint application with both brushes and knives, and the importance of brushstrokes. I will also do my best to help you to paint from your soul rather than get bogged down in rules and just copying what you see.

Trip to Arizona

I just back from a road trip to Arizona with friends and fellow-artists, Anne McCoy and Kim Roberti. It was a wonderful and inspirational trip.  If I hadn't been distracted by the beauty that surrounded us, I would have had the presence of mind to blog while there. Since that didn't happen, I will now try to fit ten days into one post. 

Our first night was spent in a hotel off of the Old Route 66. I didn't manage a photo.
