Sharing you some of my life drawings, from charcoal, to ink, to pastel. See more by clicking the link :) #lifedrawing #drawing #portraiture  
He also talks about drawing in a way that a kung fu master would about martial arts, or an enlightened monk would about the thousands of miles he's walked...

What does this make you feel?
#oilpainting #eternity  
I knew the painting was titled 'The Promised Eternity' before I grabbed the brush. But what does 'the promised eternity' mean to you?

Thank you, Kim. I'm going to paint a few more just around the house, and I'll try to video them, too. So happy that you enjoyed my video :)

Why my grandmother cannot live with me.
Naturally, she can be her or his model, but here is so much more to what grandmas can do. I hope you and your grandma will be inspired.

This morning, my 5-year-old took a photo of my with his iPad (which he named Wii-Gee), and used it as a reference to draw my portrait.
I was very impressed as I told him, “Wow, Alan, it looks great!  It looks quite Picasso!”
Alan asked, “Who is Picasso?”
“A very great artist.” I answered.
“Mama, you are a very great artist, too.” Alan replied, matter-of-factly.
And that made my day!  I am FEELING GREAT!
Have you got a child or grandchild who totally admires you and your work?  Aren’t we lucky?
Is this 5-year-old on the way to become a great artist? His drawing certainly looks Picasso!

The first time I held a brush in my hand and put paint on canvas in November 2011, it felt like magic.

Even when you were frustrated and the result was far from satisfactory.
There!  Right there, you saw with absolute clarity what you were born to do!

Magic? Corny? Or Scientifically-Proven?

If you’ve somehow “stumbled on”  your passion like I did, you can certainly relate.  But if you have not yet found your life’s passion, you’d probably roll your eyes, or even think it’s corny.

But hey, I just discovered that this almost-mystical experience is actually scientifically proven!

How would you feel if you could finally crash the dreaded inner critic?

Studying the masters’ works is one of the most effective way to silence our inner critic.  Because:
- We will grow in skills and confidence;
- We will see what we can accomplish;
- We will start to see the Masters as mentors, teachers and peers;

Experience life from an expansive mind, so you can develop your authentic expression!

When we are confident, we experience life from an expansive state of mind;
We are able to reach deeper into our own souls;
Then we can develop our true authenticity, because
we finally believe in it, in ourselves.
Get the skills and confidence to paint with the Masters. Let's re-create 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' with Vermeer!
