“Celebrating the almond blossom in a painting immortalises the fragile blossom, reminding us of how precious life is. I see the blossoms; I contemplate the path of the petals as they leave the branches and become part of the sky. Each petal is free, transported by the wind to a destiny not known, not planned, in the hands of the Holy Spirit. I shall not want, I say to myself. I paint. I become the almond blossom. I celebrate. And then the earth receives the petals. It was so short, but it is not over. The almond will come.

One of my favorite new experiences has been connecting with people to paint together virtually. Over the past two years I have been working to develop my online oil painting classes. Today I am pleased to offer a course that includes ten hours of live instruction, painting demonstrations, art critique and video tutorials. Now you can meet me in my studio and paint with me from anywhere in the world!
