Resolutions

If I ever would get into the habit of making resolutions for the new year it would be to paint more and then I would have been so proud of me today. I was on a role and did two. How is that for a start to the new year? Oh and my other resolution would be to keep to my word and get those free tutorials ready for you. Believe it or not I am working on that one too. I have just forgotten how much hard work it is to make a little movie of what I feel is worth watching. Tips or hints please?

Happy New Year, Mannon! Hmmmmm . . . ideas for tutorials? If you're going to do a video, maybe have whatever it is you're going to teach completed at several stages beforehand so that you don't have to complete it all on camera? This is what I do when I'm teaching one of my elementary classes. . . . that said, I realize that it really depends on what you're going to be teaching. :)

Beautiful paintings, today. I love the way you paint the eyes--all the different shapes, colors and expressions :)
