Greetings everyone!

It is indeed an honor and it was with sincere pleasure I accepted Albert’s invitation to co-create our newsletter. I do feel I know so many of you personally…

(continued from the Spring Newsletter)…others I hope we shall meet in the future.

I have traveled with Albert, on our many painting trips and also with him on his instructional workshop/mentoring programs, for about four years now. At times, I am asked what I have learned from doing so. I must say, the one practice that has so deeply influenced my paintings, is saying yes to Albert’s suggestions in his workshops. He invites the workshop artists to stand and paint along side him.

By standing along side of Albert as he paints in his workshops and being involved with painting the same image (or a variation there of), an amazing, eye-opening learning opportunity unfolds. By intimately observing Albert’s painting process, there is an opportunity to see how a Master artist demonstrates his painting techniques from start to finish. How Albert chooses his point of interest, what he paints and what he eliminates to support his subject and how he modifies the subject to a brilliant finish. To see more directly and clearly, how Albert takes his painting from start to resolution, continues to support the aspiring artist to change old habits and paint fresh as an “en plain air” painter.

I indeed look forward to staying in touch…(and extend an invitation to do so:

See you on the painting circuit-!!!
