Thank You For Attending Hodge-Podge Webinar; The Download is Ready

Hello Everyone,

The recording of the Hodge-Podge Webinar is now ready for downloaded.  I decided that a separate page for webinar downloads would be helpful.  You can find the page to the right in the Page list or up above in the banner.  Watch for future webinars posted in the same place.

For fun, here is the painting that I used for the opening shot.  I didn’t demo this painting; actually, I didn’t demo any painting.

Cry me a River, Watercolor in Painter 12.1 using Desert Oasis variants

That is correct, I didn’t demo any painting.  I have to fix that next time.  Webinars will be a work in progress…but we will get there.

Here is the link to the Webinar Download Page if you do not see it to the right in the list of paintings.



My First Webinar from Blog…Hodgepodge Tips and Tricks

Hello Everyone,

Where have y’all been?  Ok…I’ve been missing in action again.  I don’t know where my time goes, but I am going to get back to posting on my blog, but first.  Guess what!  I bit the bullet and purchased Go to Meeting for 100 attendees.  That means I am going to start producing live webinars at no cost to you.

The first one is a Corel Painter show and tell…or actually a test run.  Don’t get me wrong, I plan to demo stuff, but I consider this first one a practice run.  I hope you will attend and help me perfect using this technology.  “Update to original post!”  I can’t believe I forgot to mention the date and time of the webinar.  It is Tuesday, May 29th, at noon – 12:00 PM – New York Time.  Thank you my friend, Banana, for pointing it out.


I promise to make some more videos in the next couple of days.  BTW…I am having a great time in Karen Bonaker’s Open Studio…Summer Skies.  Participants have produced lots of great images.  The first week we worked in Pastels.  Here is my image.

Image done in Painter 12.1 using oil pastel brushes and Karen Bonaker Custom Brushes. I wanted a lot of texture and worked on Artist canvas. I got texture…too much…LOL.

I noticed I had another cloud painting done in watercolor, but not for Open Studio.  Here it is.  Hope you enjoy it.

Well that does it for this post.  Do register for the live session.

“Can I come?”

“No Kevin!  You may not come!  These are my friends coming to see me…not you, so don’t even think about crashing the party.”

Softly, he said, “We will see.”
