Spring is finally here.  Some sunshine today, but colder for the weekend.  At least we're in the home stretch with the days getting longer.  The longer days of sunshine help everyone.  

We are a couple of weeks away from the launch of my new learning tool.  More details to come.  But it will be everything for everyone wanting to learn realism in watercolor!  Stay tuned...
"Happy Spring!"

Shenzhen International Watercolor Biennial Show Catalog

 I received the show catalog last week from the Shenzhen International Watercolor Biennial.  I am so impressed with everything about the show.  The catalog was gorgeous, the highest quality.  They took very good care of all of the artists that were accepted into the show.  A special thank you to Zhou Tianya, the curator of the show for the excellent job he did in keeping all of the international artists up to date on all the happenings.  A top notch experience.

I've been working on a brand new learning tool that will be very useful to everyone wanting to learn the realistic style of painting watercolor.  I'm really excited about it. It will be a platform for everyone to learn on-line, on any device, at any location.  I'll release more information in the coming days.  Stay tuned for more details as the launch date gets closer.

Lake Michigan in February

 Since this was the first day in 2 1/2 months that it was above freezing, we thought we'd get out of the house for awhile and take a ride up to our Lake Michigan.  I'm afraid both me and the dogs have gotten cabin fever very badly.  This is the worst winter we've had in forever!  I took Brier and Bella for a little walk this morning at our county park.  I didn't think it would be safe for them to go up to the lake since it's been so cold and 80% of the Great Lakes are frozen.  Lake Michigan was frozen as far as the eye could see.  The hills of sand and snow are actually where the water begins, where the waves build up and form mountains before it freezes.  The mountains are up to 10 feet tall.  It's a quite impressive site.  The main thing I missed was the sound of the waves.  It was eerily quiet.  Last year, we went in February and there were a few icebergs, but you could walk on the sand and see the water.  The dogs could run on the beach.  It's going to be awhile (months) before this all melts.

Thank you to everyone who has inquired about Brier.  He is doing pretty good.  It's been hard in this weather trying to keep him moving when we can't go outside and walk every day because of the extreme cold.  The swimming at Planet Canine is a godsend, keeping up his cardio and his muscle tone.  When he's swimming he's the absolute happiest, without a care in the world.  He had a joyous swim last night with Anna, and we'll swim again on Saturday.  Since the severe weather has finally broken, we can start to go back to the park for short walks until he gets used to it again.  He's got his brand new boots by Ruff Wear which will protect his toes.  Thank you to everyone who cares about Brier...he's my little angel.
