Other topics will include how to use computer software to improve reference photos to paint from, and new possibilities for subject matter.

By taking small risks and simplifying complex problems, you will better understand the most effective way to focus your efforts.

Since then, painting, teaching and being near the ocean with my family, is how I spend my time. I am constantly working to be a better painter, teacher and father." _____________________________________________________________________________
