Happy New Year And My One 2014 Resolution

Posted in News at 8:02 AM by darrell

First, let me just wish everyone a Happy, Prosperous, Healthy, Warm year for 2014.

Some years ago I was taught at work to spend one day a year thinking ab out your own personal goals, what you’ve accomplished and what one thing you’d like to focus on in the year ahead.

I figured if it was good for work, its gotta be good for me….

So on New Year’s day, its been my practice to spend the day reflecting and making two decisions:

1. My own personal focus for the year.
2. My art focus for the year.

And then share my results someone to cement ny new objectives.

I’ve chosen to share these results with you this year.

First, let me reflect on this past year.

1. We really changed our YouCanPaintClub.com technically so that members can have faster, higher quality, streaming videos, play on mobile platforms, launched an internationalization program, and streamlined membership so that all memberships are now lifetimes. Pay once, watch forever.
2. We proudly introduced our Pet Portrait Techniques series with the release of the first 12 videos. What we did differently is to film four in oils, four in acrylics and four in Water Mixable oils, so anyone using these genre could see how our simple process worked in all mediums. This turned out to be one of our most successful ventures ever.
3. I made friends with a rising new2 artist, Kevin Hill, from Lancaster, CA. Really talented young man. In fact today is the last day of a super, special sale on Kevin’s entire line of Landscape/Seascape painting DVDs. If you havn’t yet picked up your copy, today is the last day you can pick up this great series for over a 30% discount. Just visit us at http://www.darrellcrow.com or the news article below this.
4. A really good friend of mine, Anatoly, visited us from Ryzon, Russia this summer and shared with me that he’d given up his position as the senior pastor of the Ryzon Baptist church so that he and his lovely wife could spend full time running six orphanages in the local area. I have another friend, Ray Holt, that works with an orphanage in Mississippi. They both have invited me to come teach their students how to paint. I’d like to do this. Kevin Hill will be joining me in the Mississippi trip. We have lots to do before then, but it was so nice to visit with Anatoly and Ray and learn of the needs in their areas.
5. I adopted Cherie Durand as my daughter and watched her move to the Denver, CO area.
6. My annual workshop in Brighton, CO was 10 times better this year as Adriana, my wife aka BOSS) went with me and we spent 10 days touring Colorado. She met a lot of my students and was able to visit one of her parents first home just outside of Fort Collins. I also was able to spend a few days with Cherie and we had a good time painting, visiting and exploring the local culinary arts,
7. We had to say a sad goodbye to Champ. He was going on 15 years old and cancer had over-taken him.
8. Most recently, Adriana decided she wanted to have another pet, so a Siberian Puppy joined the Crows. Adriana insisted upon a Russian name for our new fellow and selected, “Ryzon” He’s a very shy, quiet Siberian Husky.
9. Ben our son is in the midst of undergoing daily laser surgery as more brain tumors surfaced this past summer. It’s been hard for him, but his solid faith in God is getting him through each day. He’s had half of his 35 scheduled surgeries and will be completing about mid- to late January.
10. My grandchildren are doing well in their art education, but Joshua focuses on Monster Trucks, and the quick buck. Sabrina loves painting flowers and fantasy. They both bring a warm happiness to me.

Ryzon_Day2-w

With these events in mind, I started focusing on the road ahead for 2014.

What could be my one resolution?

Then it hit me…… This year I resolve to complete my tasks.

I resolve to complete my projects.

I’ll take them one at a time, focus on completion and next year I’ll have to decide what comes after everything is completed. But for me this year, I’ll focus on completion….

Now that I’ve shared my one New Year’s resolution, its time for you to share yours ….

What is the one thing you resolve for this upcoming year?

Happy New Year!

Darrell & Family.
So much as I could

I’ve asked Kevin to answer some of The Big Questions we’ve received since announcing this special on Dec. 26th, 2013.

1. Kevin, why don’t you post full length videos on YouTube that are just like your DVDs?
Kevin’s Response: “That’s a very good question and three specific reasons I do this. First, the audience on YouTube is much different than the audience that purchases the full-length lessons. In general the YouTube audience wants short films, plenty of action and will not wait through an entire 2-hour film with all of the details. YouTube has conducted surveys which provide this level of information and they have tools which allow me to measure when the audience quits watching my video. So I try to accommodate the majority of my viewers on YouTube by providing the length, details and action they’re looking to achieve. Secondly, A major purpose of my video lessons are to provide tips, encouragement and nuggets of knowledge so that the YouTube audience can easily come to know me. Social media is all about relationships. And finally, this is an excellent medium for me to demonstrate my capabilities as an art instructor. The audience can then make an informed decision on whether or not, I am the kind of instructor from which they can learn in either a live classroom or video environment.

2. Kevin, you didn’t think about us senior citizens on Social Security when you set the deadline for your special, exclusive sale. I’d love to take advantage of this offer, but our checks don’t arrive until the third of the month.
Kevin’s Response: “Not a problem. Just send me an email to kevin@paintwithkevin.com

or Darrell an email to darrell@darrellcrow.com letting us know you’d like to take advantage of this offer on Jan. 3, 2014 along with a phone number and a good time to call you. Either Darrell or I will call you.”

3. Kevin, why did you partner with Darrell Crow? Are you two planning more joint ventures, a partnership or what?
Kevin’s Response: “Darrell and I have several mutual students and one in particular lives close to Darrell. Gary introduced us and we hit it off well from the start. I’ve been in the art instructional business for a couple of years, and Darrell for a couple of decades : )). I’m learning a lot from him on how to market myself and he wanted me to meet as many of his students as I could. That’s why I’m offering a free full painting lesson in an e-Packet to anyone that visits me at paintwithkevin.com/7films. Also, Darrell has asked for a one-time, exclusive special price for all of the DVDs I’ve made for his students. I thought that was an excellent idea. So we’re doing this. I don’t know what we’ll do together in the future. But I have more DVDs planned, more YouTube features planned and I have a new PBS program currently scheduled to begin airing in April. Anyone who signs up for the e-Packet and my quarterly newsletter will receive all my news on a regular basis.”

4. Do I have to use PayPal?
Kevin’s Response: “No. Although my payment system is hosted by PayPal I can accept all major credit cards through that system. And if you’re especially concerned about processing payment on-line, you can call Darrell at 508-966-2247 and he can take your order over the phone for complete security. But I do want to emphasize that neither Darrell nor I have ever had our PayPal merchant systems compromised. It’s pretty safe. And I like its convenience. But no, you can use any credit card you’d like.”

5. Kevin, you have a website and Darrell has several websites. Which website are we suppose to order from?
Kevin’s Response: “Any one. You can order directly from my website at
http://www.paintwithkevin.com/offer or from Darrells at
