"Red Chair" oil on linen, 12 x16

Long time no see, guys.. And all because of a heavy plein air painting traveling and a workshop I took with Zhaoming Wu. I highly, highly recommend this workshop to professionals and experienced artists. I learned a lot. And I'm going to adapt and incorporate some of Zhaoming ideas and philosophies to my teaching. For me, it's all about paint application, brush strokes  calligraphy and a very strong attention to a color temperature shifts
. To watch him demoing  was a revelation and  highest joy. Here are my attempts to paint in a style of  Zhaoming Wu. I think I'm completely sold! I will integrate his approach into my own creative  expression.
I also met incredible, warm and open hearted group of people from all over this country! And THIS is a biggest blessing of my art adventure. I LOVE every second of it!  Enjoy and thank you for being part of this journey !!
