The way to learning something:

You gotta do some things for the most effective learning and these things mean using all your senses.  You muse READ, LISTEN, WATCH, DO, WRITE, AND TEACH.  So our dear Allyson says.  I've spent a lot of years doing the first four and some of the last two.  And, I truly believe that to teach you must be able to verbalize for others to understand.  And, to verbilize means you MUST have a thorough understanding of what you are doing (teaching).  Plus, it brings you into the lives of many others in a real and meaningful way.  Actually an intimate connection with others.

So, I am making a commitment to do some more teaching.  And, I'm going to be a damn good teacher.  I've taken from many, and I know what a good teacher is.  And, I have sensibility to others and know how not to destroy.

What a Day it was. . . .The Grapevine Painting Sale at Palace Theater

I was incredibly fatiqued at the sale after setting up in the efficient space called the Palace Theater Art Center.  Thanks to Bruce Rosensteil for the efficiency.  But, managed to get through the day with seeing friends and Son Hix and Amy and Braxton (grandson).  Really had fun selling 22 studies and quick draws.  Had one family that walked out with 8 paintings.  (thanks. Brennans)  Even bartered with my lawnman, R Vinson, and his lovely wife, for yard work for a couple of framed paintings.  Here is one of my bartered paintings:
