A Thanksgiving Thanks!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to thank all the comments, questions, students and well wishers that have helped the blog to grow over the last year.

We now have over 100,000 visitors a month and we’ve gone from 500,000 views to just short of hitting nearly hit the 2,000,000 views on YouTube, Woohoo!

It’s so inspiring for me to hear stories of students that have found their way back to painting – after life got in the way of their creativity…

From 13 year old’s having troubles mixing greens at school to 93 year old’s still exhibiting their work!

The creativity and progress that students are making daily is truly awesome for me as a tutor and puts my day on a high, when I open my mailbox to see a students painting success.

So a huge thanks for your kind words, support and creativity.

In the spirit of thanksgiving, me and Vanessa are off to Constable country in Essex to spend time with our family and we’ll pass the door of Wivenhoe House set in Wivenhoe Park, painted by John Constable in 1816.

Wivenhoe house (the pink building in the painting) just so happen to offer a festive afternoon tea that’s got our name on it!

Have a great weekend,


p.s I’ve been working hard on a Christmas ‘How to paint coloured glass mini course’ which should be launched in the next couple of weeks, I’ll keep you posted.
