International Artist's Collaboration Challenge Taking a break
The seventh challenge for our Collaborator's was to "Paint Fireworks."
One of our collaborators, Jason Bowen suggested we try to do this. It seems like we all had a lot of other activities infringe on our time over the holidays so we decided to skip the video for December. I have to tell you I was having trouble with this challenge. I experimented painting white or colored fireworks on a black background in watercolor and that is not an easily thing to accomplish. I was not very happy with my results so I was glad we cancelled the challenge (for now). We plan to restart the collaboration challenges in a month or so.
LIVE Streaming Web Classes
I have managed to get my LIVE broadcasts working again.
I completed Oil Painting Demonstrations LIVE on December 21, 2016 and January 18, 2017 and a Watercolor Demonstration LIVE on January 25, 2017. My viewing audience is growing steadily and it is really fun to have instant reaction to my painting demonstrations online from people in different parts of the world.
Here are the links to those three Live Demonstrations:

“It seems to me, when I see nature, that I see it ready made, completely written... but then try to do it! All this proves that one must think of nothing but them impressions; it is by dint of observation and reflection that one makes discoveries."
