Today's Painting

Jackson Gore Summer

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.

Observation Deck

Observational ability is important for an artist. So what do we look for? Well, it easy to spot the differences between things. I find it’s often more rewarding to discover and reveal what connects them. Beauty, love, joy and friendship … Continued
