It’s been a wonderful month of painting and learning. The big island tour was such a hit. I really enjoyed having several professional artists participating in our Kona and Hilo workshops along with total beginners and ambitious children. It was hilarious fun seeing the final animated edits of the Paint Nature like Patrick Ching DVD set. You are gonna laugh as you learn my most coveted artistic techniques. Click here to order.
Mahalo for your love of life and art,

| ART TIP - An Artistic Reminder - We are All artists. The only difference between a person that can paint and one that can't is the words that come out of their mouth. One says I can, and one says I can't. It is easy to go from a person who can't to a person who can. It just takes one sentence. If you feel the word can't trying to come out of your mouth just swallow the "T" and then you CAN! What you say is your reality. Practice saying positive things. At first you may just have to practice not saying the negative things.|
So many people introduce themselves to me saying "Hi, I can't draw", or "I'm not an artist". These speech habits have taken a lifetime to perfect. It may have started as a polite or humble sentence so we do not come off as being too proud of ourselves. Then it turns into constantly belittling our abilities with our speech. Claiming that we are not good at something makes us feel like we have an excuse not to try something, or, that if we don't do a good job, it is to be expected. I remember I told my dad:
"I'm sorry Dad, I just am not a good dish washer, I can't do it."
He didn't buy it.
Some of us have let a traumatic experience we had stop us from making art. Maybe a teacher said your art was bad or somebody laughed at it. Don't let these experiences rob you from claiming your artistic greatness. Get back on that artistic horse!
Actually we are all artist. We are all talented. The beauty about art is that it is an individual form of expression. It is down right healthy to let the feelings inside you come out through your art.
One of the things that I am best at is showing you how to become a good artist fast. When you get such good results so quickly it really makes you feel great. First I show you how to look at the world closer than you ever did in your life. When you think you've seen all you can see, look even closer. You will always be able to see a little more each time. Try to figure out why things look the way they do. Why the mountains are purple in the morning or why the ocean is the color it is. Just the practice of trying to answer these questions will get you seeing the world like your looking at it for the first time.
WARNING: Once you look at life through the eyes of an artist, Your World Will Never Look The Same!
