I'll guide you step by step to learn the tools to create award winning abstract art, and most importantly, to Let your inner landscapes influence and shape your artwork.

When we create art that is both honest, intuitive and connected to our thoughts hopes and dreams, we begin to see the power in art as not only something beautiful to see, but also a way to connect with ourselves and the world in a very powerful way.

I'll be painting on a 30x30 board from the very beginning, until the end when a glorious piece of art emerges.

I will be showing you in real time how I use the 6 part framework" the cadence of our creativity"and apply it to a large painting in an organic way. I'll highlight how and when I used each of these 6 phases in the larger piece:intention, play, movement, orders courage, stillness.

True story. I am a bit nervous. It's one thing to paint live in a class where we are in the same room together. But to do it "televised" with all of the in- between phases of less than perfect on display. Well, its a bit nerve-wracking. But it is exactly what I profess adds to the excitement of authentic intuitive painting. I am going to play and take a risk. And I'd like yo to join me in the journey.

Seriously, lets take a fun unplanned

journey together. This is a behind the scenes, exclusive look 'under the hood' of my step by step process to create intuitive, powerful, and award winning large abstract landscape art

I'll meet you every month live and we will add another layer of paint together on a large board. Using oil paints and cold wax medium, I will peek into my exact creative process that I use to create these award winning paintings. Follow along with me and get a glimpse into my intuitive and creative process. Like I encourage students to do- I'll take a risk, explore, play, and watch the unexpected emerge. Do I know exactly what will show up? No. Can I promise it will be beautiful? Always. Have faith in the process, let me guide you, and watch the beauty of your work emerge. It will be fun, unanticipated, exciting, and full of those risks and playfulness that I think are so important to creative abstract art that is meaningful.


When will we meet?

Our meetings will be two fold; 1 if you want to join for the live demo( you can watch the replay) and 2) for our Usual chat and crtiques

We can meet and connect and critique your work directly following this demo...( noon pacific time) or if you all want to come up with a different time for our monthly critiques I am open to that as well.

Do I have the experience I need to pull this off? Absolutely. This is for all levels and you are exactly int he right place;)

Will we get some unexpected, sometimes highly entertaining and unexpected results?


Will my painting go through many phases of adolescence where it might not appear so beautiful while the layers are drying?

You guessed it!

Can I work in another medium besides oil and cold wax? Absolutely!! The demo is in oil and cold wax, m but you can apply the same principles to the medium of your choice.
