In March of this year, I started an online art course taught by Matt Smith, one of my favorite painters. It’s titled “Simplifying Landscape Painting”. So far, it has exceeded my expectations, and has me thrilled to be back painting again every day. I hope to be posting some work here in the blog. My goal is to produce one good work a week and submit it for Matt’s critical review, and to those fellow students also in his class. One of my other objectives is to improve my ‘batting average’ from one good painting in three attempts, to something better than that. I would be thrilled with one out of two. We’ll see.
