Thankyou for your wonderful website. Your work is  truly beautiful . It's  always good to encounter an artist who is so generous and willing to share .  I am a painter living and working in New York City.  I like to do citiscapes  and still life. I came to your site while browsing around for information on  technique. I find that it's always necessary to be aware of other schools of  thought regarding  the craft of painting.- keeps me from getting stagnant. 
Thanks again and good luck to you.

Hi Don, 
I'm out in the sticks in Texas...and your page is a university for me.
I've been making my own paper and color...mostly watercolor and pastel.  I can't thank you enough for the amount of work you have shared on the internet.  After 15 years in Alaska, It's been a dream of mine to move to Hawaii and work in a gallery.  When I do I look forward to seeing your work in person.
thanks again

Hi Don, here is my comment.
Absolutely astonishingly beautiful art!  A Frenchman visited my and concluded that his "eyes are still in Paradise" when he emailed to me.
I'm working on a water soluble wax paint.  I'm close to it but at present, no cigar.  I expect I am trying too hard to
have a "perfect" paint.
I do have a metallic wax paint that will raise a thin, very shiny, metal leaf.  I am out of it at present, but when I do make some I'll try it as a substitute for the polished tin.  By then, I should have the wcwax in hand.
Good to see your work again.

Hi... wow! Amazing information on your site! I'm really inspired by the paintings on the biography page... after I write this I'm going to look at more of your stuff! I'm just starting out with oils, and I can't find anything anywhere on the net that will tell me how to clean up and care for my brushes when using them with oils. How do I do this? 
     Use turpentine or paint thinner first and then wash each one out with soap 
     and water in the palm of your hand. You can store them with mineral oil in 
     them for longer periods.

 We don't have big waves here except when a big 'blow' is coming through :)
 But even so I have sat at the edge of the surf for hours at a time just watching the 
water's movement and you are the first one I have seen that have written down 
the analysis of the structure of the wave.
 Thanks again for all your expertise and SHARING :)
I am gonna try and get out this morning and get some painting in.

Dear Mr. Don Jusko,
 Hello....  I found your site by searching "HOTBOT" using keywords: art course painting which resulted in your site appearing at the top of the list. 
I spent all night last night on your site and got to bed shortly after dawn the next day.
I must say I love you work and I'm very envious of your life-style. I'm 53 years old and have dabbled in and out of painting most of my life..... 
now is the time for me to make the commitment to actually learn the craft.  I'm semi-retired and work strictly from my home.
 I was almost knocked off my feet by your RCW.  I congratulate you on it.  Brilliant piece of work and what I've been trying to locate for many years....   When I order it from your website,
what exactly do I receive?  Your site is a bit difficult to navigate, so I couldn't nail down the answer to this question.
 I also plan to order your Video on acrylic painting and would like to know how to order them (the Video and RCW) at the same time,
to possibly save a bit on shipping?

These findings, generously shared, will benefit us all. Probably influence the paint manufacturers too. 
Yep...no doubt that Don, and others blazing this trail further...are building a unique legacy. 
Also, kudos to Don's efforts on his site.  Can't tell you how many times
I have referred people to the site to conduct their own investigation for answers.

Thank you so very much for this incredible wealth of information!  You are so terrific to make this available to us.
As I approach my 40th high school reunion, I remember how much I wanted to be an artist way back then, but was too intimidated.  But you can't keep us down, so over the years I have created a few paintings and murals, a lot of window murals for all the holidays, and tons of pottery and sculpture.  I did LEARN how do do pottery and sculpture, but all my paintings were just experiments -- how I wish I had learned all this so long ago.  With your help, I'll learn now!
I looked at every one of your paintings on this site.  You are truly an amazing artist.  You have an excellent website, too.

Hi Don, I found your panel painting instructions page from a search, and I can't tell you how helpful it is.  I love your work, and can't wait to get my first panel done for a commissioned portrait I have to do.  I have one question, though it doesn't matter for this panel, which won't have cloth or canvas glued to it, but whatexactly is PVA glue?  I've been to a building supply and a hardware store, and neither one knew what it could be.  On guy suggested it might be polyvinylacitate, but that wouldn't be water-based I don't think.  It could also be that PVA is something that's unavailable here, but I doubt it. Anyway, thanks for such an informative site and such beautiful, colorful paintings. Jan Rogers
Yes that would be poly vinyl acetate and it is water based. Elmers yellow wood carpenters would do, it's a little acetic but over wood or masonite and under gesso
it won't matter much. Art Supply housed sell a ph neutral type, but like I said, it won't matter much. Don

Thanks Don,
I have a friend who is an artist.  We both were discussing the need to map 24bit colors on the computer to colors of oil and acrylic paint.  I was in Pearl paint last week and wanted to find out how to order without always finding my way into Boston or NYC.  Your color wheel is a step in the direction.  We can match the required colors and order online from Pearl and other art supply stores.
Your wheel is a God-send.
