    Your talent is amazing, but I was intrigued by the digital painting on your iPad. Can you tell me what application or software you use for the digital painting.
    Thank you for all of your wonderful video tutorials.

      Hi Deborah,

      I use Paper 53 for the iPad, but I also have used Sketchbook Pro in my Galaxy pad. Each has a lot of nice features. Hope this helps, and thanks a lot for your kind feedback!

      Best wishes,
      Ross

    I’ve been searching the great wild web for some time now looking for credible instruction for the sheer pleasure of art. There’s sure a lot of what I call ho-ho-hokum out there but then I ran across your blog.

    Thank you very much for all the hours of effort to put such good content on the web. I’ve signed up for your newsletter and am now perusing your back blog entries. I’m learning a lot thanks to the clarity of your instructions. Many are talented but not very many are both talented and able to teach. You are both. Gracias.

    Hi Ross
    My Name is Jerry I like to thank you for all the videos and hard work that went into making them. They are the best videos on YouTube or web site. And would hope to see more.
    I going to make my wife and daughters a reckless using Scrabble blocks should I use a eye pin with no loop or ad the loop and for earnings with one letter hanging from the ear wire with a rap one or two.
    I like the look of the raps around the wire but on a small piece is it over kill.
    Thank You
    Jerry

      Hi Jerry,

      Sorry to take a while to get back to you – the spam filter caught this comment for some reason. I have never made jewelry with Scrabble blocks – sounds interesting. I would add the loop as the pendant may hang a little better that way. As for the earrings you may want to experiment a little bit with wire rapping. Do a test piece and see what looks best from a design perspective.

      Thanks for your kind comments – I appreciate them a lot.

      Best regards,
      -Ross
