Watch Johannes Vloothius paint Live

Forest Wonder

I want to share with all of you that Award Winning Artist Johannes Vloothius will be painting live tomorrow, Sunday Dec. 19, 2010 at 2 pm EST, or 1pm central , this is the link
Jo is an excellent artist and teacher and unlike all other instructors, he gives you the golden nuggets, or secrets that only the top professional artists know. He focuses on abstract shapes or interesting shapes and color values and gradation and harmonizing.
I encourage you to sign up for wetcanvas and read the threads posted there to give you an idea of what other artists have to say.
There's a lot of useful information in those threads. I have them bookmarked.

I would like to share this news cast with you about the best art instructor in the world, as far as I'm concerned.
You know how they say 'that he who can't teaches", well definately that's not how it is with Joe. His paintings are fabulous and gorgeous and he is an Award Winning Artist. You can check out his paintings at
I have known Johannes for 7 or 8 years now, and was his student for 3 years. I also am proud to say that I've been to his home in Canada, and met his lovely wife, Patty, and his sons. Johannes was gracious enough to give me a one on one painting lesson that lasted all day long. I do have to admit that I really pushed myself that day and just about collapsed at the end. I have a neuro muscular disease, basically it's a muscle weakness called Slow Channel Myasthenia Gravis.
He is such a caring and giving person, not willing to give up on you until you understand. As you can tell I think the world of Johannes Vloothius, and am truly blessed to not only have stumbled across his live on-line art class years back, but to have met him in person and painted with him. You can check out his classes for yourself, just go to and click on the yellow school bus. Free classes are being held this week at 5 Eastern Standard Time, every day.

Christmas Light Christmas Blank card from

I am so excited, that I just had to share with you that someone named Lyle from CA just purchased 225 of these cards! That's my biggest sale yet! Thank you Lyle, whoever you are. The funny thing is, I was just thinking yesterday that it would be really nice if someone bought a big quantity of something from one of my shops and said a little prayer. Isn't that just like God? He rocks!!!
