I am totally bummed. OETA in Oklahoma City has quit carrying your show on Saturday mornings. If I don't watch anything else on TV, I watch "Paint This With Jerry Yarnell." I am not at all interested in the Bob Ross stuff. It's not even the same style or technique of painting and not nearly as good. When are you coming back and is there a another way I can watch it. Having major withdrawal pains!!! I want my Jerry Yarnell!

We have a call into OETA's representative over their Programming, and haven't heard back yet. We do appreciate your bringing this to our attention. You are correct that our show has been running uninterrupted for years on OETA. Thanks again!

Hi Jerry., I wanted to let you know that I have been watching your show now for about 6 months. I also watch Bob Ross, and I've been watching him for years. I have been inspired to paint but I guess I've been a little scared and I haven't been able to purchase the equipment I need. The 2015 Christmas, I bought my wife some art items Easle, Paints, Brushes, Canvas. She hadn't touched them until this year. Well, She finally did. She was going to paint a butterfly and give it to our friends for a wedding gift. Well, She didn't finish it. She changed her mind. So, I gesso it. Well, in the mean time, I have been watching many videos on Youtube, including yours, Bob Ross and some others. Well, today I took a BIG step and decided to do painting Painting Storm clouds and lightening, by Allison Prior. The other day I was watching a video on painting tornadoes. So, I was following Allison, to a point. I started off with a grey gesso canvas. I did the clouds the way she was doing them but I also added my flair. The clouds that were towads the bottom, I shaped them like they were the tops of tornadoes and brought them down to a point, or at least one of them. The other I made like it was an F4/F5. I added Burnt Sierra and white to make it look like dirt and debris. I also added some trees, a couple of hills on the each side and a "meadow" in the middle. I did add lighting . I would love to send you a picture of it, so you can look at it and maybe critique it and help me to make a better one. I have NEVER painted or took an art class, but everyone I showed it to said it was fantastic. A couple of them said that it looked like a tornado storm here in Oklahoma . Please tell me how I can send you the picture. I took a picture of it on my phone. I love your shows and your videos on Youtube. Keep on painting and God you and your family. Best Regards, Peter J. Sabo

Jerry has helped me so much. His teaching style is wonderful. I am hoping to see a video explaining how to paint a field of grass blowing in the wind. Thanks so much!

I was watching an episode on tv. You were just teaching about not trying to make you painting look realistic, like your reference photo. Reminds me of my high school art teacher years ago. She said you might as well just take a picture if you try to paint something so life-like and perfect.

I am very pleased to have discovered the wonderful world of Joseph Yarnell today! I live in Tulsa and I bought a beautiful mural this morning at an estate sale. The family told me that their mother, who lived in Bixby, had taken lessons from you, Jerry, and that you painted this marvelous landscape of mountains for her and more than a dozen of Gods wonderful creatures and a cabin on the edge of a meadow with smoke curling up from the chimney, as part of your instruction. It measures over 3ft by 7ft and is hanging in my living room. I wish there was some way to show it to you here on your website. Thank you for revealing the beauty of Gods creation and sharing your gifts and talents with us.

A few months ago I was in North Carolina and started watching your program on the TV in the hotel and got so excited. I have been meaning to get back to painting for almost 25 years and you gave me the inspiration to get back to my artistic side and dream again. Will be doing online course. Thank you and God bless you and your family.

I watch the TV broadcast every Sunday before I go to church and I find it so value.  Not just because of the painting but because you also tell what to do when you're discouraged and quit painting.  Knowing that other artists, especially one like you who has become a professional, have gone through the same kind of thoughts and feelings, has really helped me get back up and paint again.  Thanks, so much!

I have been enjoying your TV instructional program for a few years, and find it very informative, inspirational,  as well as instructional.

Until recently, I never attempted to paint anything that was part of your programs, but on seeing you paint a glass of wine, etc.  I was enthused about trying it myself, but with my own composition.    There isn't an attachment icon on this page, otherwise I would forward it to you.  I will however, I your critique program is available in Canada, send it on for your criticism, etc.

I would appreciate your reply.    thanks for a great program, and hope it is never discontinued.   Kate c.

Our critique program is available for individuals in Canada.

Thanks so much for your show. It is always informative and helpful. I have been painting for about 45 years but I still have problems with overworking and getting everything too dark. I would love to come to one of your classes.  I feel drawing is a little easier for me but I think I have picked up some pretty bad habits. I have done painting for community theater and all have been well received but they don't have the effortless accuracy of your work.  Keep doing your beautiful work. You are an inspiration.

I watch the tv program as much as I  can, and have worked on some of the paintings.  Today my husband was watching  and said that your palette looks like a Paint Store blew up.🎨💣

I have just found your painting program on UNC TV here in Ncn.  Can you explain to me why all teachers begin painting a tree with a brown color?  Trees are brown only if dead.  Sorry but trees are grey.  I enjoy your program very much.  God has richly blessed you with a good eye.  Continue using the talent God gave you. Thank you

Hi Jerry.  I love watching you and the other artists on UNC TV.  I feel as if I am learning from you.  One thing I wish you would talk about is your palette.  I was taught to keep the pallete clean which is very hard to do with water color.   I notice your palette is the dirtier than mine.  How do you use it and not get the paints muddy?

Hi Jerry<div>Love to watch your painting shows. Im teaching myself to paint. I love it. Funny thing is when I was in middle school i wanted to be an artist. I couldnt draw as well as my classmates. Now Im 56 I just started painting. Im so surprised. Its my therapy! The show you did with a mailbox. You said the mailbox post was in a grain can? Its actually a milk can. My dad use to pick up milk from farms in Vermont an this is what milk was put in many years ago from farms. I wish I had a couple of them now. I hope you continue to have your shows on PBS for along time. Youre awesome!!!</div>

Thanks for your shows,Jerry, you taught me a lot.The problem I have is i'm half deaf and rely on closed captions for your shows. Do your dvds have closed captions?

I love watching your shows, it's very inspiring. I've learned a lot by watching you. I wish I lived closer so I could attend your classes. I'm just starting to get into my own drawing &amp; painting. I find it very relaxing. I just would like to Thank You for your amazing shows. I get up early just to watch your shows, because I do not want to miss them. Keep painting those breath taking drawings.

<span><span><span>Jerry, I have been watching your "Paint This" show for quite a while now and I just today decided to try your web site. I found the info about you being a minister and it caught my eye, being a child of the King myself. I listened to your sermon and watched you paint and was so inspired by you. I thank God that He has saved you to carry on His Word. You have a wonderful ministry! I wish you lived closer to me so that you could come to my church. I'm an artist but I've never been brave enough to do much with selling my works. But I love to paint for people. Like you, I love to see the happy faces. I'm not the greatest but God has blessed me enough to share it with my friends and family. I would love to be able to take your classes but that is just a dream of mine. May God bless you in all you do!! And if you're ever going to be near Pinehurst, North Carolina please let me know. God bless!</span></span></span>

Thank you.  God Bless you! Jerry & Donna

Good Morning Jerry &amp; Donna! I have recently begun to replenish my spirit and my studio after the loss of my husband of 39 yrs. from lung &amp; brain cancer. For the past year, I have been unable to even clear my mind enough to pick up my brushes (I have painted for 40 yrs), but on the week of his passing this month I suddenly snapped out of my fog, and began watching many of your cds &amp; books I had purchased from you in the past. I now feel a renewed sense of picking up where I left off 3 yrs. ago today. I give thanks to God, and for helping me find my way back to your painting lessons and methods. You once did me the honor of critiquing my painting of cardinals in a snowy pinee tree, and told me refreshing came to your mind. Thank you so much Jerry &amp; Ms. Donna for providing me with orders so promptly, and helping me to once again ,to begin again-something I know that Jerry is all-too familiar with. God Bless you both, and I wish you continued success with all of your endeavors!  Sincerely, Cheryl Jones

Thank you Cheryl, God Bless!

I discovered your PBS show shortly before my husband died of Alzheimer's.  As his caregiver I rarely had time to paint and as the disease progressed, not at all.  Before the disease, we did art shows together, with him doing all the setting up of canopy, panels, etc.  I had little desire to paint after he died.  But, watching your shows rekindled my enthusiasm to pick up the brushes once again.  Your teaching style and technics with acrylic and water mixable oil especially spurred me on.  I am now painting again; my paintings are in a gallery and I am active in our local art association.  My daughter started watching your show and she is now painting and we are doing shows together.   God bless you Jerry, for you were truly used of the Lord in helping me, a great-grandmother 82 years old.
