    Congratulations David. You are the best. As Patricia said, inspirational, knowledgeable, talented and making painting fun. If I could I would come over there and take classes. But I cannot so I soak in every little blog and youtube video there is. So hopefully one day, my hand and brain will cooperate well. he he. I do wish you many rewards and recognitions more in your long life.

    A remarkable teacher….Incredibly entertaining in his lectures on art, science, perception, psychology, technique, and generous demonstrations. Creates an atmosphere conducive of bringing out the best in each of us. Always encouraging. Relaxing and eliminating our fears, anxieties, and keeps us laughing.
    Has an ability to connect to each and every student.
    Truly a magnificent teacher and human being!
    The only limitation is we all want more of him!
    From your grateful student!
