should be encouraging to know so many look forward to your notes.
I made the suggestion, and I believe it will happen...that my own study notes and outlines will be made available that I submit to F&W when the archived recorded sessions are readied.
I like this thought of yours especially.
I appreciate artists that take my workshops...certainly enjoy travel, making new friends, but I have seen those (and few to be honest) that believe taking a workshop will suddenly cause their work to be marketable and go flying off the easel faster than they can keep up.
A workshop...teaching, webinars, books are all quite helpful, providing valuable information...life changing directions...but the real impetus for change then comes from hard work. I like how Edgar Payne puts it, "mix brains with paint!"
...and to cause all that noted, learned, important information to bear fruit one has to work and work ferociously! As you note...seeing this exercise as time in the weight room for painting, I don't think it will come any faster way than such...
