  4. Thanks for the quote for my journal: “The minute you feel like you’re afraid to throw paint at that paper, that is when you need to throw paint at the paper; because when you’re afraid, that’s when you grow in art.”

Hi Lindsey love the way you teach water color painting, makes it look so easy, I have enjoyed several of your online courses and love them all…I just wanted to pop in and say your new camera is wonderful…I have always wanted to see your work, palle,t and water… With water color the hardest part is figuring the water amount and no one ever showes that
