Aloha ,

Welcome to spring!



This newsletter includes my recent vist to Sunny Florida. I went to Florida to teach and learn. Also, some of my artistic heroes like Wyland and Guy Harvey, were in Florida too.

See my Florida 2012 Journal for my adventures in Florida (link below). My art tips focuses on the stages of an artist's life. My new release is a spontaneous rendition of the view from the "Hanalei Bay Overlook". If you haven't yet got my Painting Nature DVD, do it! It is the biggest compilation of artistic knowledge I have to offer and one of the biggest accomplishments in my life.

Art classes are selling out. I have posted my schedule up to September 2012 online so you can secure an art class early.

Have fun and see you back in Hawaii soon!

ART TIP
(Back to the top)
- Great art tip
The stages of an artist's life -

Many artists travel through different periods of life. A noticeable change occurs in their art. Picasso and Salvador Dali are a couple of the more notable ones.

As I approach my fiftieth year, my time on Earth becomes more rare, more valuable to me. The things that I wish to accomplish and experience in this world grow more important.

As for my art, tight details become less enjoyable. I strive for the best effects with the least effort. That is what people love to see. That is when I'm closest to genius, closest to God.

I'm writing this from the state of Florida. Today I looked around St. Petersburg, a charming city on the water. I took in three inspiring Museums and an Ancient Egyptian exhibit. That civilization really made art to last way beyond their physical lives. Then to the new Dali Museum. I saw what a person can do when their life is really dedicated to art. I witnessed the stages of the artist's life and what he wanted his art to do. While most artists want their viewers to enjoy their pretty pictures, artists like Dali wanted his viewers to think.

The most inspiring art I saw was that of a living artist named Chihuly. What impressed me most is that he is still alive. It's not what he has done, it's what he Is Doing! Great paintings and glass art and large scale public landscape projects shown from a wonderfully designed contemporary gallery. It really made me think about my art and life goals.

The Thomas Edison, Henry Ford Summer home was very inspirational to me. When I was there, surrounded by the genius and hard work of these men, I asked for some of it to rub off on me. It is amazing what focus and organization can produce. They loved nature trips as well. It reminded me to spend more time in the wild.

I am getting antsy from not really painting for three weeks. Yet I never feel that anything I do is a waste of time. We never know when our last day is. Though our risks and gambles are constantly under scrutiny while we're alive, the world will never fully know the results of our efforts even long after our deaths. All we can do is follow our intuition (that little voice inside that we know is right). Actually, it is our duty.

I reflect on my life, my goals and achievements. Recording my painting knowledge on DVD is one of my most major accomplishments. I think of my projects in progress and what I want to leave the world beyond my lifetime. Then I think about the experiences I hope to have. A big smile crosses my face.

Luckily, I still look at myself as a teenaged kid. After all my body has been through, I have no intention of slowing down. I know that my best physical shape is yet to come, and my most productive years are still ahead.
Now think about your life. Your art. What changes have you seen?
What changes do you want? What do You want to experience?

Your life ahead is a blank canvas. Enjoy painting your masterpiece!

DVD - Zilka Terrientes - Date - 4/6/2012
I watched your video and it is wonderful. I have enjoyed so much seeing you explained step by step how to get beautiful sky, sea, mountains, it has been a wonderful learning experience!

Thanks for this opportunity.

Regards, Zilka View more DVD testimonials

ANIMAL COMMUNITY ACTIVITY - Laurie McKeon - Date - 3/13/2012 - Just had to tell you how MUCH I appreciate your thoughtful and important article about the Hawaiian Monk Seal on your most recent newsletter. Like you, I have been deeply saddened, disturbed and upset by the recent killings of our Hawaiian Monk Seals.

There is so little that we can do, as individuals, to help change attitudes, biases and hatred toward these innocent animals.. our friends and fellow mariners. You come from a place of knowledge, experience, appreciation and understanding about both the seals and Hawaiian culture. That's why I think your newsletter article is SO important.

I plan to forward it on to as many people as I can and I hope you will keep painting them (such BEAUTIFUL paintings), defending them and educating the local population.

Mahalo for your great work and dedication View more testimonials
