    Here is the finished painting, Didi and progress photos for Easter Island Heads and the floral painting. Can you guess which painting is the artist’s first serious painting? Didi-finishedineke-EI headspatty-flowers

    • Ken, They all look wonderful. I cannot guess which one is the artists first serious painting…because they all look like they have been doing this awhile. Awesome stuff….sounds like a great class!

  • Here’s a little update on the Realism with Acrylics class that I am teaching at the Atelier Art Studio in Royal Oak. I am teaching the same methods that I use for my “jack” paintings using Golden OPEN acrylics with the Richeson Lock-Box palette. (I love how the acrylics stay workable for months!)

    I’m having a LOT of fun working with artists from…[Read more]

  • Quick feedback for Embrace Creatives: THANK YOU! Because of EC I met Chris at Image Works. He did a great job photographing my painting Car Jack and I plan on going through him to see how large canvas prints turn out using his image. I used his image to create my half size limited edition paper prints and they turned out great! Thanks, Chris!

  • Hi All! I hope you’re juggling everything well during this holiday month! I just wanted to pass along this fun video of an online international art exhibit in which I am humbled to be part of. Gallery25N included two of my pieces in their “Red 2018” exhibit. I’m proud to be one of the 20 artists that they chose. Enjoy! http://bit.ly/Red2018-Exhibit

    Hi. If I bring it in Friday afternoon could you have it done on Monday or Tuesday afternoon? If so, can you email me at ken@KennethHershensonArt.com? I’d like to discuss the method you use for 36″x36″ and what the cost would be. I might also be interested in canvas prints. Dearborn is a hefty drive but I’m in a rush for this particular scan. THANKS!

  • Hi All! Hey…quick question…
    My usual place that digitally scans my paintings is running 7 to 10 days behind. Do any of you know of a local place (somewhat close to Royal Oak) that can digitally scan a 36″x36″ painting on a gallery wrapped canvas? I am hoping to get same day or next day turnaround if I take it to them on Monday, November 19th.
    Thanks!

    Wish I could be there! My painting class is from 6pm to 10pm. 🙁

    Probably about 6 to 8 hours of 100% focused work. So that might be a month from now!!! (Just kidding! But this one has been a challenge!) I want to get it done in time to make signed prints available for the holidays.

  • I’m STILL not done with Car Jack. 🙁
    However, I’m getting REALLY close! Just thought I’d throw this up on EC. (Not the best quality picture but it will give you an idea of how it looks.) I just need to tighten up a few details, finish the background and nail down the tree reflections in the upper left of the car.

    And, don’t forget, I’m…[Read more]

    • SO cool seeing this in person! How much longer do you think you need til it’s complete?

    Yes, Andrea…the gloves need to be new and unused. They can be hand knitted or store bought. And preferably WARM. Dollar Store mittens tend not to be warm at all. Thanks for mentioning that.

  • Latest update on Car Jack. Haven’t had enough focused time lately to wrap this up but I’m getting closer. This is the most detailed of all of my “jack” paintings. Whew! Next one is gonna be simpler!!! CJ-10142018

  • Have any of you ever watched “Adam Ruins Everything” on cable TV? I love the show, It covers science, history and just about all knowledge. Here is a snippet from his episode Adam Ruins Art. The full episode ends on a higher note than this segment from it but you’ll get the idea. Kinda sums up how I feel about the “art world” at the top of the…[Read more]

    Thanks Bela! I’ve enjoyed working with Gerard and, though my time has been too sparse lately online, I have enjoyed working with Andrea as well. EC and DABI are valuable resources for artists. I hope you all take advantage of the opportunities provided.

  • Kenneth Hershenson posted a new activity comment 3 months ago

    Thanks for the call-out Andrea. There are still openings for my Realism in Acrylics classes at the fabulous Atelier Art Studio. They start on Tuesday 9/25 from 9am to 1pm and also Thursdays from 6pm to 10pm. I will be teaching the methods I use in acrylics and various tools for creating my photorealistic paintings. Students do not have to do…[Read more]

    Here’s another look, Andrea, into the progress of one of my paintings…Jack on the Rocks. http://bit.ly/JOTR-Progress

    • So cool! (Add this video link to a Portfolio or Project – what a great way to add depth to your Gallery)

  • Kenneth Hershenson posted a new activity comment 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    Thank you! Yes, it was less than two weeks after he received three of my paintings that he sold Jack of Clubs to an Arizona art collector. I was shocked and excited at how quickly that happened!
