Mark, I am taking my very first class at Chisel and Palette Academy in Chicago, and I am aure to share your site with all of them ! I enjoy going there, but seeing your Videos is absolutely insightful and breath taking ! I may sound a little too over board , but you truly are a Messiah for the world of Oil paintings ! You can make anything come alive ! I love the fact that you hold nothing back in teaching us ! Also I see a difference from your previous taping- You speak faster now ( I luv that !!! ). Please tell me where in Hawaii are you ??
