Just wanted to share a brief announcement regarding Zoom Art Classes.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, in person art classes pose too much a risk and I care about my art student’s health and well being. With that in mind I’ve started offering online Zoom Art Classes using the popular Zoom conference app.
The art class sessions are kept small and are only 2 hours in length. They consist of live demonstration, screen sharing of content and the occasional color chart (cheat sheet) and other emailed documents, depending on the particular lesson.
It also affords critiques of your work and areas where you can improve. Group and private sessions are available. If interested, please contact me as times may vary.
You can read more in this newsletter.
Update on Zoom Art Classes with a preview
How would you like to paint a scene that goes from this…
If so, then I encourage you to join my Zoom Art Class. The above painting was developed over 4 separate Zoom sessions. Each class includes a detailed image that is emailed to you for that session along with a “cheat sheet” of color mixes used via a painted and labeled chart that is also photographed and sent to you. The class also includes live demo and instruction on technique. Two sessions are held each month. Each 2 hour session is $40. Contact me today for info and how you too can join us and learn to paint from the safety of your home!
Hagerman Signs with Somerset House Publishing
Busy, is a word that comes to mind when thinking about how much time has passed since the last blog post and how quickly time flies as the saying goes. But, I have a couple of things to share.
First is some exciting news. A while back I was contacted by the President of Somerset House Publishing who was looking for an artist to fill their need for Texas landscape images. Apparently my work fit the bill, so a contract with Somerset House Publishing was recently signed for the reproduction of several of my best Texas artwork images in open edition. Somerset has been the publishers of works by artists such as: Larry Dyke, G. Harvey, Martin Grelle and many other fine artists. So it’s nice to be included with such a line up.
Four images of previous work are currently available for purchase with more to come.

American Plains Artists: Another Big Project
The American Plains Artists or APA is a Non Profit artists organization that highlights the American Plains region as a source of artistic inspiration and has an annual national juried show. About 16 years ago, I built their first website and in comparing it to todays standards the website looked like it was built 16 years ago! So starting in late October 2017 the first phase of rebuilding the website from the ground up began. I was pleased they wished to keep the backdrop image (although cropped) on the home page which in their eyes depicted the plains nicely. It was a painting of mine titled Red Erosions and was an actual view here in West Texas.
The project certainly was challenging, but it offerend a different aspect to creativity including developing an instructional video and one that highlighted the Plains region and the activities of the APA.
Please take a look at their new website and my “other” creative endeavor including the video found on their education page.
Now it’s time to get back to my own artwork. Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
