Tomorrow will be the Thanksgiving, I want to express my sincere gratitude to all my artist friends for supporting me. I wish all of you to have a wonderful holiday season.
The day right after my Mt Pleasant workshop, my workshop at Lindale Texas started. This painting is my first demo. I want to thank Maureen Killaby for organizing and all the artists from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas for attending.

On the way to the workshop location I took a photo of a barn. I used this photo as my reference and did this demo painting. I still feel landscape is not my cup of tea. But I have found that my landscape is more welcomed than my still lives. Well I think I will do more.

I have just finished a 4-day workshop at Mt. Pleasant, Texas. Before the workshop started, I did this open demo for the all the members of Mt. Pleasant Art Association. Time was quite limited, but I think I did all right.

After my workshop ended, I painted with the Putney painters on the Saturday, Oct 29. It was a portrait painting day. We had a great model Scott. I have not painted portrait for a long time. As a matter of fact this is only my 2nd head study I did in 2016. I felt really rusty.
Unfortunately, I did not see Richard Schmid that day, but I was so happy seeing Nancy Guzik, Carol Arnold, Kathy Anderson, Stephanie Birdsall, Mark Boedges, Rosemary Ladd, John Smith, and quite a few other artists. I was so enjoyed Putney. What a legendary place it is.

My last demo at Putney was a palette knife cityscape. I used one of my photos I took at Nanping Village in September when I was visiting China. I enjoyed very much of using palette knifes and I hope this style will mature in the near future.

The workshop at Putney has two days of still life and two days of landscape. This is my demo painting landscape from a photo. The reference photo was shot at Concord MA. In August, I visited the Walden Pond and Concord. This small house is a replica of Thoreau's house. I really like Thoreau's philosophy.
