I love teaching to small groups. My loyal students, I called them My Art Musketeers -a hard working, dedicated, talented bunch. After a few days in Anacortes we went to paint at Mount Baker. This majestic landscape tears me up. While we were approaching the Artist Point, the mountain started reveal all its magnificence. The Union of Art and Nature is my biggest passion. Painting Nature in any giving form is the Purpose of life. Here is the first painting from the paint out.
