For #tbt, one of my favorite pet portraits.

Onyx the Pit Bull Terrier is the most gentle soul you will ever meet. Her piglet plush toy was her version of a teddy bear, looking a bit worse for wear because she carried it everywhere, even sleeping with it.

Onyx was a rescue from a backyard breeder. Her piglet gave her comfort, perhaps representing a pup she undoubtedly lost while being overbred. It is always very humbling to meet dogs like Onyx who, despite what they have been through, have nothing but love for everyone. - Kimberly

For #tbt a painting of Sedona, Arizona at dusk that +Patrick Saunders did for the +Sedona Arts Center's 2017 Plein Air Festival.

We have the Southwest on our minds right now because we are heading that way soon on a long, leisurely trip to California for the +Laguna Plein Air Painters Association's 20th Annual Laguna Beach, California Plein Air Invitational.

"Sedona Lights" (oil on linen, 16"x20")

In every painting class I teach, I'm asked this question: "How can I gain better control of my brushstrokes?"

While the full answer involves a number of things, most importantly practice, I often hand over one of my brushes and say "Try this." Almost every time I do, a short time later, the next question is "Where can I get these?"

I've used almost every brand of brush available. I tried +Jack Richeson Grey Matters brushes for the first time just last year, and I've been using them every day since. They are still as good as new.

I can't stress this enough - a quality brush that holds its shape perfectly, use after use, is essential to painting exactly the stroke you want, where you want it.

I was recently asked which of my paintings is my favorite. I would have to say that my portraits of our pets are still my favorite pieces.

Here's one of them, a detail of my portrait of our cat Ken. He hated it whenever we were doing anything that made our laps unavailable to him, and he would drape himself so his head hung over our old desktop computers, or the furniture, or whatever was handy that would allow him to stare us down until we were sufficiently guilt tripped into giving him a lap again.

I really enjoyed working with this great group of artists at my second floral workshop for the Ellis County Art Association in Waxahachie, Texas. They came to class intent on challenging themselves, and great things happened as a result.
I can't thank +Tina Bohlman enough for inviting me to teach at such a great arts organization in one of the most charming towns in Texas.

I tried something new with this demonstration painting on the last day of my second floral workshop for the Ellis County Art Association.

This hour-and-a-half floral was painted by committee. I started it, and asked my class to evaluate it and provide suggestions based on all of the criteria we discussed over the past few days. I made changes based on their input, and together we solved problems and improved the painting.
