• Hi Jerry.
    The tourist in Venice was dead wrong. No more sky. Such a good blog post. I wrestle with this often. Recently I started shifting how I start a painting. I liked the way it felt. But…I still wanted/needed a strategy…a way through. In no way does a plan crimp my creativity. That throughline guides me and allows my instincts to unfold. For me…it’s about balance. Creating some kind of balance of my pure self with what I have learned and allowing the good teacher voices to mostly remain while banning the bad teacher voices out of my studio! xo Cynthia

      Hi Cynthia, Thanks for your thoughtful comment. If you wish to respond to my blog, and I know you have a lot
      to say on the subject, I’d be happy to post it. It’s an interesting subject. How to achieve direction, a way
      through, a strategy as you call it…and not shut down the unexpected, the spontaneity, the surprise. J

  • More and more your writing presents a clearer vision of art and through time relevance of your pursuit for purity through the painting the form becomes revealed. Plein air painting as you perform proves you are a unique sportsmen; fearless, aiming beyond the seen stars, in pursuit, competitive to and friend of God. Bless your endurance.

    Just loved the latest newsletter! Venice, Matisse, Mozart, and Jerry painting – all yummy.

    Still struggling with the method but loving the struggle! Getting there, slowly. Will share soon … it’s really cold outside right now!

    Best wishes,
