My second demo was to show how to paint roses. I made everybody very tense at the workshop. I was painting very slowly, making sure every stroke counts. I painted quite a few roses by now, but I still feel it is tremendously challenging. I wish I could have practiced more, because I have not seen much progress in my rose paintings for a while. I am working on freeing more time for painting this year. So far I have not seen any effect. But I am trying. Although I am teaching, but I don't feel I know much more than my students. Many of artists attending my workshops are spectacular painters. They inspire me and help me grow. I am really grateful about that.
