Today is my birthday. As a friend said - another trip around the sun. Getting to be a lot of them, and while I don't plan on stopping any time soon, it's time to change course.
After a long time planning, I've decided to make the shift to full-time painting. I'll still be teaching of course, but producing far more small studies, as well as larger, gallery-ready works. I've begun learning video techniques and should have a demo to upload to YouTube soon, and thereafter, who knows!
So if you've been considering commissioning a portrait, or buying a study, or offering me a gallery show, now is a good time. :-)
