Do you ever get the feeling that life is trying to tell you something?

I think life is telling me to get busy with this. I'm going to try. We'll see how it goes.

I've given some thought to what this blog might encompass and I think I have found a way to think about it; I'd like it to feel like the conversations I have with my students. It's the one thing I know of that I have a hard time turning off: talking about art and how to learn how to do it.

I recognize that initially most of the readers will be students and former students---they know my voice---but I hope eventually it reaches the people I feel could get the most out of it: people who are interested in learning to draw and paint, but have been scared off by any number of fears. I think I'm going to start there.

Yes, you can learn how to draw and paint. It's not even that hard. It just requires some sustained effort. More on that later.
