“Cafe Latte” M. COOTSONA Demo in Class Three

Earlier this year, I told you about my mentor Melinda Cootsona, a Californian artist’s e-course, Own Your Colors.  It was sold out so fast that many of you told me that you missed out.

The great news is that Melinda is launching Part 2 of Own Your Colors.  The first round starts in September and the second group starts in November this year.  I’ll be joining the September class.

To show you some examples, A Little Cheeky and Fornarina Rosa were two of the paintings I did from Part 1 of the class.

Hope to see you in class 🙂

Coincidentally, or by the hand of the Divine, I was pondering the […]

Reconnect with Your Faith through Art

faith through art

Born and educated in Communist China until I was 16 years of age, I had been raised as an atheist. You only believe what you see, that’s how you avoid being fooled. And a “belief” in anything other than the Communist party is a superstition.
