    I am interested in attending one of your workshops. Do you have dates set for spring or summer yet?
    Thanks, Mike

    Hi Gregory,
    We met in Gloucester, MA last week. My girlfriend and I came to paint at Little River where you were painting. It was nice to meet you. Do you ever offer workshop on the east coast? I may be interested.

      Hi Claire,
      I do remember you and your friend, and thanks for letting me crowd in and paint with you two. I do come East to teach every year, but have not taught a workshop in the New England area. Given enough interest I would love to come that direction. Greg

    Thanks for the great workshop here in Texas, Greg. Due to your relaxed, practical and attentive approach, I now have the confidence and courage to pack up my materials and go DO Plein Air painting. Despite the obstacles we had, as a group and individually, you demonstrated tenacity…and, that’s “the main thing” it takes to create something worthwhile…in my opinion. I also learned a great deal from the limited palette, the specific instruction and daily group critique. It was “life-changing”, Greg, truly!

      Hi Sharon, I appreciate your comments, and hope you gained something from the 3 day workshop. I thought you did very well and were receptive to my instruction. Didn’t slap me a single time for painting on your canvas 😉 I hope you keep it up and get outdoors as often as possible. There’s nothing quite like it. Let’s try it again next year. Greg

  5. Mary Lee Lenertz says:

    Although not all great artists are also great teachers, you are absolutely outstanding at both. I feel very fortunate to have been able to take your wonderful workshop. I am deeply appreciative of the way you went out of your way to meet the needs of each of us. I learned so very much and I am looking forward to practicing what you taught me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I hope we see you again next year!

      Thank you very much for your kind comments Mary Lee, it was a pleasure working with you in Texas. Keep plugging away at it, and I’ll look for improvement the next time I see you. Greg
