PSA 📣:

I have always considered myself fortunate to live out my dream as a professional artist; but to also have the tools to MANAGE MY MENTAL HEALTH USING THE ARTS.

Life has changed for many of us this year and although my exhibitions & events have been cancelled, I have been fortunate through technology to still be able to offer my art and teaching via the internet.

I want to use my skills to help anyone locked down in Melbourne to use The Arts to get through this challenging time. I am offering free subscriptions to my online Art Course: isolationeducation.vhx.tv for those affected. E-mail education@djwaters.com.au to get setup.

Share with anyone you think may benefit.
Stay safe and stay sane.

Well if you are looking for weird I’m pretty sure your a 10/10 for that! Still have my personal watercolour of “Barney” dog in the office. A treasure i will always have.

We love our ‘weird stuff’ art. Never stop painting!

I've had your "deep in conversation" above my dining table for years. Every time someone visits for the first time I see them counting feet and a funny look on their face 😜

Thoroughly enjoying all the commissioned artworks I’ve been involved with recently. It’s such an honour to create artworks in commemoration/celebration of significant events; capturing memories, locations and personalities to be proudly displayed and passed down through the family for years to come.

Here’s one I’m putting the finishing touches on today... I hope they love it as much as I loved creating it ✌🏼❤️🎨

Yep...if anyone is wondering...I am a red head in real life too. 😉

This is very beautiful. Bet everybody is extremely proud to own this masterpiece.

The link for the new class is here: isolationeducation.vhx.tv/products/acrylics-creating-texture

To clear up any confusion, the new format does not currently include a live webinar option. Since restrictions have lifted we haven’t been able to pin down a time to suit everyone returning to their day-to-day lives. We envisaged releasing content that can be viewed at anytime would suit people better as they can watch when most convenient for them, pause, rewind etc. (The lessons are also more compact without Donald being a smarty pants to the online students!🤣) We are open to reinstating the webinars if we can find a time that suits enough people, your feedback is appreciated!

A new class will be released each Tuesday. Homework and questions can still be sent into education@djwaters.com.au and we’ll get back to everyone individually.

Thank-you for your support with the online classes, enjoy!

Update and thanks...
We would firstly like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and sincerest thanks for the support we were shown during an extremely uncertain time for all. Be it a purchase through to a like on Facebook. We would especially like to thank Don's students that pivoted with us and exercised patience and understanding whilst we adjusted our face to face teaching model to online delivery.

We have learnt exponentially, will continue to learn whilst feeling endlessly fortunate to exist in an technological age which has allowed our ongoing contact and operations with the outside world during a time of physical isolation - how incredible is that?!

In March, we nervously took a blind gamble to offer online classes in the form of fumbling Zoom Webinars but can now (somewhat) more comfortably offer the 'Online Arts Channel' isolationeducation.vhx.tv as another string in the bow of Donald James Waters OAM.

Lessons will be uploaded every Tuesday which can be purchased individually or as part of a monthly subscription. These will be advertised on our social media platforms.

Thank-you again for your love and support which gives us the confidence to try new scary things!

Hi Cathy and Raymond, George is watching with me thoroughly enjoying the gig and wishing he could join in with his drums! Xx🥁

Looks and sounds great!

Glad you are back painting to music Don. Jacob and Matt are great entertainers . You painting is looking great. Can’t wait to visit your studio at Jacobs Well after all the COVID restrictions are lifted .

I can just see a weird and wonky hot air balloon with the kids dangling out of it...of course the air balloon has a propeller gadget thing. Or is that just me lol... too many gins? Probably...

Thank's for trying Emma, I think your Dad might need some Metallica to finish off with 😈

And thank you to you for your time and beautiful arts - music and painting. I was told in grade 8 to not choose art bc I was hopeless at it- literally now I struggle to colour between the lines but music is my thing.

We have our granddaughter Maddison watching with us. Maddison said she loves the music and the painting she is keen to see what it will be

Looking magnificent..... l just love that gorgeous sky!💕

He must be tired, it’s looking so beautiful!❤️

Hello Don & Marg!! We miss your handsome face in Cairns!! From Richard and Janine (from Frame Design days)

Take care all of you I’ve loved this xx ❣️

Don the boys are doing a great job- that painting looks amazing -

There is so much singing and enjoyment in our lounge room!!! Thank you both

Thank you all, it’s fabulous!

He’s amazing with her! Actually obsessed. He’s overly loving at times, so we have to watch him haha

Yes thank you!! What a wonderful night for three amazing artists!!

Great job guys thank you! This is a great concept and great fun!

Thank you Don and Emma, it’s been amazing!❤️❤️❤️

Running late, sounds great!♥️

Yes Cathy definitely puts you in your happy place during these trying times 😘

Donald is a work of art!

I’m loving that sky as well Don

My 5 year old has been captivated by your work. A book would be truly amazing

Wow.. I just got a glimpse of where the painting is heading..love it..well don Don

Good evening guys! Looking forward to tonight and seeing what happens with that glorious canvas!

Thanks guys just had a romantic dinner with a craxy Artist and a piano man.Awsome work guys😁😁

Love you Don - going to bed bc getting up early - our little Bonnie has been away in Navy now for 3 years- special day on our driveway instead of the parade.

That was so lovely, thankyou for sharing your music, beautiful words👏🏻☺️

Wish I could play the piano , especially a grand one . It’s beautiful 💕

Takes me back to the NZ cruise when you when were the artist in residence. So much fun each night with you and Marg

Oh, one of my all time favourite songs! I've even used this as a reference to paint! Beautiful Jacob!

Sounds like it would be a good Disney song Jake I love it!

Amazing all three of you superstars the painting the music and the support manager 🙂 So happy to be on this right now.

Thank you both for a lovely night, and the painting looks amazing!

So sad 😞 good to dedicate a song to them and their families - will raise my glass . Thanks to them all xx

Was that a happy dance Don? You look you appreciate a job well done mate.

Thank you Jacob and “the Don” for a wonderful iso Friday night ❤️

Does Jake take requests in the spirit of Anzac day ? The pogues- the band played waltzing Matilda

Can we do this live after COVID at Jakes place? That piano, am in love with it! We can clap and sing and banter ...how awesome 😎

Hope you can pass that previous message on bc Don met her thru mike Pearson on our cruise in 2012...

Am singing along with a glass of wine ...hubby is cooking tea it smells so good!

I love when you put mythical creatures like that in your works.

Lucky Jacob doesn’t have it where we can all sing along...

Congratulations team, you are all amazing.

Hey Donald & Jacob 👋 👋 Thanks for putting on a great show tonight 😊

It was lovely Jake than k you. Also Dons painting has me intrigued...

Don, would you like me to bring over a drop of my old inspiration?You know what I mean .

A mermaid seems to be sitting on the bottom left rock . Her tail is in the water , just missing her top half’s
