The spring is almost here and we are at our first RV Rally in Tucson Arizona. We love the RV lifestyle and art so I encourage fellow RVer's by teaching some basic skills classes at the rally. Here's our beginners class from yesterday. Today I'm attempting an intermediate class and introducing the demons of perspective!! Wish me luck

This was my 7th time bringing art to the RV groups and we had fun. Last year I was asked if I could do something a little more advanced and the desert with the trailer (caravan) as the result. The lady with the fancy trailer painting obviously had previous experience and did her own thing. I was delighted that a couple of the artists took it and ran with it. They all said they had been in art several years before but due to families etc they dropped it. My little class provided a means for them to get involved again.
I've been smiling all week!

Bless you Brian for being the instigator in igniting the passion, which no doubt has been lying dormant, for who knows how long, in the lives of these people. The wonderful feeling of accomplishment and happiness they will derive from it all is immeasurable and heartfelt thanks go to you for making a difference in their lives.

Warhol said: Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.
