"I just wanted to tell you thanks so much for the wonderful plein air workshop in Sedona. It was everything I had hoped it would be. The instruction was very valuable and I will practice it regularly to improve my paintings. Thanks for keeping the class small so everyone could receive equal instruction. We couldn't ask for a better experience."
"Thanks for a productive and well-planned workshop. I learned much about colors, values, local color and a lot more. I worked on the last painting a bit and plan to finish it and frame it. My mind continues to go over the things I learned, which means I will continue to use the techiques."
