SOLD-Color and Shadows-6x8

can you tell what i dream of (and paint) when its rainy and cold here in nc? thats right-- sunny 80 degree lanes that are tropical, lush, and colorful. just to the north of havana in fact!
i did this one from a study i did last year. like the looseness in this one. this may end up painted even larger and shipped to a florida gallery? dont know yet
i filmed a new dvd about "Understanding and Mastering Values" for Jerrys Artarama yesterday. it'll take a few months to get edited and into the stores (and catalogue) and i'll let you know here when theyre available. also did a bunch of Free Art Lessons. they wont take as long to get online. you can go to the website and look around in a few weeks. others i did previously are on there now if you havent seen my FAL's before. theyre fun 5-7 minute mini lessons on tons of painting subjects.

Hi, Mike,
I've watched some of your short videos on the Jerry's Artarama site. Very informative and helpful. And I purchased a few of your DVDs too. I like your easy going instruction style.

Same here. I think I may have all your dvds now (except new one) and have enjoyed a few of the freebies - thanks for doing them. I like this painting too - love the looseness, the light shadows, and the light on that tree!

I Love this little painting! So sad that it had already sold. Maybe next time!
