Mr. Curtis, bought 2 of your dad's books, the one on Sea Scapes really helped me grow. I really like your notes on painting and your work. I believe the best painters come out of Mass. Good ones in California also but the history of Cape ann and Rockport is phenominal. I'm too old to and too far a way to do a workshop but thanks for sharing the painting notes And I gleaned what I needed for my growth. We need painting theory but we need daily painting and work to really grow. your expertise is right on the mark. Thanks m.leblanc

Just browsing the work of several members of the North Shore Arts Association when the name David Curtis caught my eye - thought I'd have a look-see. Living in England, I am better acquainted with the work of 'our' David Curtis and although I knew from my visits to Cape Ann that you spent time in Yorkshire I cannot before recollect seeing any of your English paintings. Bolton Abbey, Wharfedale, Brimham Rocks! All wonderful images of places frequented by me in my youth, captured by a man blessed with great talent. Thank you so much.

Today I participated in the third of a three-day workshop with David. He is congenial, asks questions that help you process and learn, and has inherited a rich legacy from the Boston School, moving beyond to personalize his vision. I recommend his workshops and find much pleasure looking at his work!

I have only been painting for 12 years and consider myself a newcomer with much to learn. Originally from Massachusetts, I have resided in Alabama for the past 8 years. I love your paintings and perhaps one day I may be fortunate enough to attend one of your workshops. I just printed out your field notes on "Tones" and find learning to paint is truly a never-ending process. Marilyn R. West

I am looking forward to Plein Air tomorrow, 22 Aug 2009. Your demonstration at the Rockport Art Association was exhilerating. Thanks for the lesson. Connie

Donald Smith (Jun 2007) Yes, you should move closer and take his workshop. He's great, the scenery is great, and the other people in the Saturday group are great people. David is keeping the tradition alive of the Cape Ann Painters who tried to pay it forwards.

Hey David, Your work is still as fantastic as it was when we saw each other back in the 80's. Maybe I can afford a piece some day to put with Roger and Alan's. Dick Smith

Dear David, I am planning to take your Sept course at the Rockport Art Association in Sept. I like the way you can paint very painterly and then in your next paint more traditionally. You have a wonderful understanding of plein air and studio art! I can't wait for your class,I have many questions! Linda

Just found your site and am completely inspired. I just moved to an area of NY that is begging me to try plein air painting. I am going tomorrow - thank you for the inspiration.

Your work is amazing. I found a link to it on Wetcanvas.com. I'm glad I checked out the link.

Hi, Ran across your webpage on a post on www.wetcanvas.com in the plein air forum. WOW! I can't believe you only charge $20.00 for a 5 hour workshop. Almost worth moving to be close enough to join in the class. Your paintings are beautiful! Don
