Men-tor n : a wise and trusted counselor or teacher.
Once upon a time I was a studio-only painter. Sure, I’d go outside to gather reference material but all my painting was done in the cozy confines of a studio.
Then one day my friend Bob Sydorowich invited me to paint outdoors, “en plein air”. It took all the courage I could muster to say yes. It’s been yes ever since.
Thank you Bob!

What Others Are Saying
Just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic experience I had in your watercolor class. You provided excellent instruction in a relaxed environment and accomplished the impossible, which was to break me out of my left-brain only painting mode. I will still paint some of my work in a greater detail, but I believe that at least every third painting I do will be a much looser form, similar to what you taught. I believe this will go a long way to keeping all of my work a little fresher and more open to interpretation by the viewer. I hope to take more instruction from you in the future as time allows. Take Care.
