    1. First of all, take a look at this man's work and see the talent. Then dream that there was a way for him to give you some amazing tips, pointers and advice.

    2. I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Buechner with my father in Upstate NY several years ago. He was my fathers teacher and friend. Under his wing my fathers own painting flourished. They are both gone nowbut I find this book an invaluable resource from the mind of a true master!
