Even after 40 years as an artist, I still have to practice and I still have to do my homework. Like anything - ‘You only get out, what you put in!’

This is my publisher Scott from @originpublishing☺️ We have worked together for 18 years now! ❤️

He began reproducing my artworks after HRH Queen Elizabeth II selected 2 of my paintings displayed at Novotel for CHOGM for The Royal Art Collection.

Scott has revolutionised the print process and won many awards for being the best in his field. There are many processes involved to get to the stage photographed but this is my favourite -

I get to put a piece of myself onto every limited edition print by painting my signature in acrylic, hand signing & numbering and giving my blessing before they are sent off to their new homes.

Scott does do a wonderful job- so nice to see that that is one business that’s still going strong.

What a great story and you would have many more 😂

We had prints of an amazing original you did for us of our son. It's such high quality! Those paintings in this photo would make great Jigsaw puzzles!!

Wow how special.

Happy birthday Amy! It was a pleasure to create this keepsake for you 💓What an awesome gift idea!

Amy was blown away with this one, I was struggling for a gift idea (I like to be sneaky and innovative) but a quick chat with Donald James Waters OAM sorted that out instantly.

The amazing man created a canvas with Amy as the feature for her 40th birthday celebrations. Then all our beautiful friends personalised it with messages and love.

I am so happy that Don created this for us, but no where near as happy as Amy is right now.

Thank you to all our wonderful friends who came and celebrated with us last night you made the day amazing and we couldn’t be happier to have spent our day with such an amazing bunch of friends we love each and everyone of you thank you for everything you do to make all of our days happy.

"Anyone could paint that!" "Yeah, but YOU didn't!"😂

So what the *BLEEP* is Abstract Art even about?! Where/how do you start?! 🤷‍♂️ This week's online lesson is an absolute cracker - a great exercise for every skill and experience level!

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!
