I am writing to thank you for being the absolute best art teacher I have ever had! It was my lucky day when I went to a demo of yours and I got to watch you paint a portrait of an audience member. You did it in record time and it looked exactly like her! I knew immediately that I had to learn from you!

Since then, I have been in several ongoing classes of yours and several workshops. You have taken me from mediocre to advanced and you made it fun. You are always ready to help students one-on-one with patience and an incredible wealth of knowledge. I always come away with a feeling of satisfaction in knowing that I am just a little bit better artist each time. You are a rare find:  A great artist, a great personality, and a generous teacher willing to share his knowledge.

Here’s to many more classes and many many more paintings!

With respect and affection.
