Thank you so much for the video lessons on "The Perfect Pair"  I love cardinals and may use my 'lesson effort' as our Christmas card.  If I do, I'll put on the back of our cards "from a Jerry Yarnell lesson."  My favorite video lessons are of "cropped subjects"  like the broken pots, the penguins, floral stairway, etc. but I learn new things with all the video lessonsThank you for the Online school.  I really appreciate the variety of video lessons and the "snippets" on art techniques.  Thank you for making it all accessible and affordable.  Also, I appreciate your keeping all the earlier video lessons available at the site.  I often go back to some of the lessons from the past.  Please keep doing what you're doing.  Art has no end.

Mr. Yarnell, I would like to thank you for sharing your painting lessons on PBS. I am new to painting and your program keeps me motivated to keep trying to improve. I learned about water-misable oils from your program. Thank you again for your lessons.

I've been enjoying  your show on TV and have decided to take up painting. I am having a difficult time finding the script brush. I found one at Blick but it does not work like your does. Any suggestions?

hi Jerry, Some years back, you came to a little town called Cedar Hill, Texas.  I was so blessed to be able to have 2 days of painting with you in that class. I have never forgotten what I learned.  It was the most fun and inspirational class I have ever attended. Thank you ! God Bless you Carolyn

I've only been painting acrylics along with Jerry's teachings, but I got a bug to try "Oil" over my last acrylic painting. Of course I thought I was smart and could buy general paint, thinner, linseed from Michaels, but the smell is too much for me, and I didn't enjoy that attempt at ALL. Do the products for doing oil that Jerry sells omit the odor issue? Thanks. Still love painting.

Der Sir I have been watching for some time now.  Two years ago we were visiting our daughter in Collinsville, OK and tried to find your studio, got caught in a storm and had to go back to Collinsville.  I Pray for you and your family, love your teaching and of course your art.  I have to many OLD habits to get over, PPP and am a brush protector, I have brushes from the late 1950's that look like new...hahaha. I did so want to be a colorist in my youth, but had a family, so coloring was with my children, now grand children and g-grandchildren. Keep up the great work, you have a God given talent as an artist and teacher.  Thanks for the many hours of watching what comes out of your mind through your hand extended through a brush.  You need to see our Lake Michigan. In His service.

Jerry, I have followed your painting lessons since 1988.  I cannot express in appropriate words the joy and wonder the time and pleasure I have seen in the time I have received in my paintings.  I thank you for your God given talent and your great lessons.

I have been following you for several years, and painting along with you. I have produced several tolerable paintings doing so. Recently, my wife enrolled me in the Yarnell School Online as a birthday present. I can't adequately express how helpful your snippets have been. I enjoy them very much, and watch a few as often as possible. I find them not only helpful, but also encouraging. My desire to paint has never been stronger. I may never reach your level of talent, but I am enjoying the journey. Thank you for a quality school !

I recently started watching your shows on KET.  I have learned more from you than I have watching other artist's shows.  You are so detailed in explaining every part of the process.  Thanks for great entertainment and learning.

Good evening Jerry.  I watch your teaching sessions on PBS whenever I can and appreciate the way you explain what you are doing and why, also the variety  of subjects.  Would you be able to do a program about  trees, flowers,  etc blowing in the wind, to show movement, please.   thank you very much.Sincerely,Dorothy Christopher.

I have been painting over 20 years mostly oil...after watching Jerry I now take more patience with my paintings, have moved on to acrylics{before didn't think I could get a good blend of the paints}, and am rewarded with more professional looking paintings..thank you Jerry for teaching me patience☺♥

Jerry, love your shows! I record them to refer back to &amp; I noticed in the Rooster series (which has been on here for the last 4 weeks) apparently there was a mix-up in programming(?) as we did not get to watch/see how you paint the (big) rooster in the foreground! Instead we watched 2 shows of highlighting the rooster &amp; adding straw, etc. Just making you aware. I love your show &amp; hope to be good at this some day... Lol Love Light

Thank you for your note. Be sure to contact your network directly to provide feedback on episodes airing out of order. Unfortunately, we have no control over that process.  Again, thank you!  Jerry & Donna

Have just recently begun to watch you join our local PBS station and think you are great. Really appreciate how detailed your explanations, and your sincere love of art always shines through! Your enthusiasm makes me want to paint again after being away from it for a number of years while working. Now that I'm retired, though, am thinking about starting again....and your program was a God-send as I only learned about you while channel surfing one day. God has blessed you with incredible talent and you are using it to the fullest. God bless you as you continue to share with...and encourage....others!

I've been watching you're program for awhile now. I take care of a person with EOAD; Dementia with rapid progression. After over a year of watching your show with me she finally picked up a paint brush. She's 56 & has never painted anything in her life. I told her to paint whatever she saw in her head. She loves your nature paintings. She titled her painting "Wild horse". When she was finished she asked me if "that guy" we watch on TV would like it? I giggled & said, "I'm sure you would've given his TV show more purpose." Afterwards I excused myself &amp; went to the bathroom to cry. She's more special to me than anyone can imagine. I would love to show you her painting. Is there a way I can e-mail you a picture of it? I/we don't have the funds to travel to you to show you in person so e-mail would be the best way. Thank you &amp; many blessings to you for your shows. I use them as therapy for her now. Prayerfully one day we can come to one of your weekend retreats.

I have been painting for 30 years.  Acrylic is my chosen medium, but have dabbled in watercolor some.  I have been watching your watercolor series on PBS Creative Channel and have been learning a lot.  I love painting nature, so landscape painting is my favorite subject, but have done people and flowers, also.  I mostly paint realistically, but enjoy painting loosely to discover new techniques.  Bold and vibrant colors are my favorites, with contrast being a very important part.Thank you for furthering my artistic enjoyment by sharing your time and talent.Linda Lee Jacobsen
