  1. thank you for sharing this with us. the part that surprised me the most was the size of the brush you use. and then to watch it all come together

    thanks again,


    Let me call Lillian about this

  2. Thank you marge. i just finished watching the video as well. i can't believe how easy it looks. i was wondering the whole time about what the final painting would look like. I watched it again after I saw the daily still life.


  3. Bravo! Bravo! Would love to see more of these videos.
    your biggest fan,
    (Move over Marge and Lillian)

  7. I loved watching you paint! Thanks for sharing. Any more to come?

  8. Sorry, Diane, Lisa biggest fan would be me.

    I, too, enjoyed watching the painting come together and am impressed with the size of the brush on such a small canvas.

  9. Mr. Kennedy,
    Okay, I will move over just a little for you to be her biggest fan/cheerleader. Your daughter is wonderful in every way. She has helped me directly and indirectly in many ways with my daily painting. You must be very proud of her.

  10. Hello everyone, thank you for the supportive comments!

    Marge, that's pretty much my 'go to' size for brushes, I use it on the little 4x4" panels too - when I got to bigger canvases, I use house painting brushes sometimes, but those are annoying to clean.

    Diane - thank you!

    Diane and Carmen, I will absolutely make more. I've already received some helpful feedback via email on the how to's of video production (my college film training was in Super 8 - am I dating myself?). I'm excited to try another and have better ideas of how to show the palette, etc.

    Hi Dad!
