I'm pleased to announce that I will be kicking 2017 off by teaching my sixth painting class titled, The Ebb and Flow of Watercolor starting January 26th! Class will be on Thursday evenings from 6:00-9:00pm at Open Ground Studios. This course is designed to explore the basic skills of watercolor painting. Students will learn techniques of watercolor and experiment with various mediums to create vibrant effects in their paintings. Students will also learn how to control their water and paint, troubleshoot issues and use materials properly. If you're a watercolor enthusiast and are looking to sharpen your creativity in one of the most refreshing and relaxing mediums, I'm the guy who can help you out.

One of my most heartening moments was a quiet couple who were browsing at my rack of prints at the Carmel Art and Wine celebration last weekend. We chatted for a bit as I told them the stories behind some of my work. They told me they'd be back shortly. Sure enough, they returned after looking around and purchased one of my Bowie prints. They approached me and the lady said,
"We just couldn't return home without this!"
"Oh where do you live?" I replied.
"We're returning home to Ireland tomorrow." She answered. I'm honored to say that being an artist has given me its fair share of rewards. If you haven't had a chance, pick up your own print today!
Words can't express how stoked and thankful I am. Thank you all so very much for taking the time to come see Anastasiya Bachmanova and I at the Carmel Art and Wine Festival yesterday. It was hands down the most successful show I've had to date. More than half of my first run of prints are now sold and off to good homes all over the world! Here's to the start of a very long career! Special appreciation to Denese Sanders, the founder and den mother of Open Ground Studios for giving me this opportunity. I also want to thank my avenging angel in business, the lovely Katie Crawford Allen for being a guiding light. And finally, thank you Ana for keeping my square reader stable as I used it for the first time and for teaching me so much yesterday on how to put the circus together. Stay tuned, next Tuesday, June 21st is the day robertleeburcar.com goes live! Love, Robert Burcar
