“Thanks again for a fantastic week of painting…So well grounded in the fundamentals and your energy and enthusiasm for what you do is immensely infectious. The morning after I returned from the island I was walking to the farmer's market as usual on a Saturday and couldn't stop trying to formulate the mixtures for the colors I was seeing in shadows. I stopped to admire the form of a huge willow tree like I hadn't done before even though I had walked past it dozens of times. You are thoroughly impressive. Keep up the excellent work!” -Jason Terry, Associate Professor of Art, Northland College August 2012 firstname.lastname@example.org
