From Master Painter Dennis Perrin
"I encourage my students to first practice visualizing the finished painting in their mind’s eye before they even touch a brush or paint. In fact, we often begin our classes with a guided meditation that encourages them to “see” the finished painting.
I then invite them to step slightly back and see that the painting is mounted on their easel, just below is their palette covered in swirls of paint, with brushes and paraphernalia nearby. I also invite them to “see” their own hand and to realize that they are the artist that created this painting.
Through this process, the student enters the role of being the creator of this work and sets the stage for them to now “allow” the painting to come into being in real, physical terms. This simple but powerful shift takes the painting process to a whole new level!"
Why take a virtual course?
Any painter, regardless of level, would find in this course, revolutionary new ways of thinking about painting, as well as techniques and materials that will allow the painter to evolve to a whole new level of understanding in executing their paintings.
Painting is more than just a process of creating a piece of art. It is a state of being that has application well beyond the domain of the palette, canvas, and easel.
Dennis Perrin, a Master Painter and Teacher, with over 30 years of experience, will demonstrate the power of thought in transforming your art into a powerful expression of who you really are!
I am fond of encouraging students to be mindful of what they say about themselves and their work. Why? Because words and language encapsulate our thoughts, beliefs, intentions, and emotions. When we use language to express ourselves, we create momentum and generate greater energy from the thought that’s behind the words and phrases we choose.
So if we want to shift the energy in our vibrational makeup, language is a good place to start. When choosing words that point in the direction of what we want instead of back toward what we don’t want, we generate energy that opens new doors and leaves behind unwanted habits of thought and action.

About Master Painter Dennis Perrin
Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called an American Impressionist Painter in the Boston School tradition, and that is not surprising since among his greatest influences are the American Painters John Singer Sargeant, Edmund Tarbell, and Frank Benson, as well as the French painter Henri Fantin-Latour. Other major influences have been Diego Velasquez, Johannes Vermeer, Thomas Dewing, Maxfield Parrish, Joseph DeCamp, and so many others.
