outstanding to say the least! ...Wonderful examples of relying on mass and value rather than hard edge delination and outline. Fine examples of elevating the everday ordinary to masterful works of vibrant art.

How is it Ken can evoke such light and color with mere paint and brushes?

Rita Brace(above) is my teacher. I have learned a lot from her as a result of her taking Ken's workshop and by watching his DVD. When he comes to Southeastern Massachusetts again, I will be taking his workshop, with glee.

I paint, I try, I try to make sure everything is correct. Yet his look so detailed with big strokes and yet it in it's looseness is still as detailed as mine. I think I am thinking I can't leave a detail out. I so enjoy his work although it is the first I have seen of it. You can bet there is a new DVD being ordered. I love the ship to shore. This is not my house and the thinker. AMazing stuff. Mad skills.
