WHAT: an (approx) hour long video course that walks you through the creation of this painting from beginning to end. In it I will show you my favorite techniques for creating luminous layers using paper, paint, and encaustic medium. Of course, as always, you can pick and choose from the techniques to create your own painting according to what lights your creative fire.

WHY: Why not? In my 11+ years of teaching, I can’t recall a single instance where I have finished a piece from it’s bare-bones beginning to it’s layered finish in front of the same set of eyes. I figured it was high time I showed you the process because I know sometimes it’s hard to know where to start and when to finish. I want you to see how you can navigate the ugly (sometimes big) middle parts of a painting to create something you can perch on the shelf, gawk at for a good, long time, and feel so darn proud of what a beauty you created.

Not into cows?
No problem. This is not a mini course on painting cows. Feel free to substitute any ol’ images you like.

For reals!
ALL of you who purchase this course through October 31st will be entered to win the exact original painting shown here along with some of my favorite goodies for art and life. I’m a bit overly excited about this part because care-package-creating is, like, one of my top five favorite past times. This box of goodies will be jam packed with all the perfect autumnal goodness I can stuff in it from my heart and home here in Oregon, to wherever you are.
(Yes! Even internationally!!)
