I have discovered your TV show after recently retiring from a career as a graphic artist. I am a expert at watercolor painting, a novice at oil painting, and I've done a few acrylic paintings but since I tried to use acrylics like I use watercolors, they weren't very satisfying. I am really enjoying your programs. I might get inspired to trying using acrylics properly, and maybe even those newfangled water-mixable oils you talked about! Thanks!

Jerry I have watched you on television for many years and have learned so much from you. I also watched you on YouTube amazing the way you paint you are an awesome painter. I’m in a group and we do our chores around Phoenix and I have gotten quite a few commissions already when someone asked me where did I learn to paint I always say I learned a lot from Jerry Yarnell thank you for your wonderful programs on television God bless you.

I am a true lover of all types of art. I have played the organ at my church for 58 years - I love music. I am a crafter - since retiring from my position as an Administrative Assistant for 32 years (5 years ago), I have become a quilter. I also enjoy knitting, crocheting, embroidering, and painting. My painting is probably the one craft/art that I haven't done a lot of. I enjoy watercolor and took a couple classes which evolved into a weekly group meeting of several of the people from the class. I loved it and looked forward to being with them and painting. I watch your show religiously every week and love watching you take a blank canvass and turn it into a "work of art". I would like to paint, but find it hard to fit into my schedule - retired people are busier then those who work a full-time position! I don't have a "space" to set up my paints and leave them, which means a lengthy process of getting everything out and made ready to paint - by then my time is "up" and I need to start dinner, etc. I appreciate all of the instruction you give when you are painting and demonstrating how to apply different techniques to accomplish the desired results - the mixing of colors, shading, etc. You are a great artist and teacher! I envy your location and wish I that I was closer to where you teach - the introduction to your program - the beautiful cabin and walkway - it is beautiful. Thank you for your inspiration and for sharing your gift of painting with so many thousands of people. Perhaps someday I will be able to get back to the canvas - I certainly have enough materials to work with - probably many of my paints have dried up or whatever happens to them. I am assuming that the main medium you use on your TV show is acrylic? Thank you again for sharing your expertise and gift of painting with all of us. Blessings.

I love watching your programs. I wish I had the talent you do. You take the time to explain why you do things, the effects, all the information is very helpful. I hope one day I can afford art supplies to ntil then I will keep watching. I have a photo that might do for a future painting. I hope it will go through.

I saw your program for the first time today and your web site piqued my curiosity. I was blessed to see you are a Christian and not too far away from the Ozarks! I enjoyed watching the show and have been motivated to start painting again.I did well in High School Art all 4 yrs., but its been almost 50yrs., since then. Lol I love creativity and and would like to improve my painting skills. I am considering maybe a day class to meet and learn what I can at your workshops. Thanks for your service and Tv show.

Jerry so good that you are a little different from other artist, the difference is you are a saved man and always finish your show saying God Bless you. I have every one of your book even the newest one. You are the reason I 70 years old man started back painting. About 10 years ago I was in my wood working shop put the radio on BBN. This station is in Charlotte N.C. but it is all over the world. It was started right here close to me in Norfolk,va. Please try to find it and listen to it. One day I heard them talking about this on line Bible study course , so I checked it out. The Lord wanted me to get to know more about the Bible because he had plans for me. I don't know how I did it but it's a long course and a test at each end you take and hit submit. If you fail any one test you can continue but you won't pass it. I took my computer with me and any spare time I was going through these test It took me almost 4 years sometimes some of these preachers would use a word I would have to look up to figure out how to answer it. I would make a copy of every test and file it in books thinking I could help someone else take this course but had only 2 and they didn't last a month. Please check it out my radio is on in my studio 24/7 and I have it on all night when I sleep. Every day at 6 AM they play To God Be The Glory. God bless you and your wife. And if you come to Va. I will show you some cypress trees in the blackwater river or swamp at some places, and the root you see up around it are called cypress knees. Fly on out to God's country and visit the outer banks , I will hook you and your wife up at my son's restaurant Steamers. God Bless and remember To God Be The Glory

Howdy from Texas Jerry. Just got a computer and am trying to learn it all over again. I have been painting now with your help from your workbooks, and have several paintings in our local library and a restaurant down town Bandera Texas. The gentleman who has the restaurant also is a reverend and has made me feel so special. Of course the Lord has taken me by the hand and is leading the way.

Mr. Yarnell, I have been watching your show first on pbs and then on create tv since 2014. I like to paint in oils and acrylics. I have never taken classes before. I dream of coming to your studio one day. I had to quit my job to care for my terminally ill husband and am presently homebound with him. He has Glioblastoma 4 and doesn't have much longer to live. The dream of coming to your workshop gives me something to keep me going. When my husband dies, I think about just disappearing for a week when it's all over and going to your workshop. Thank you for giving me something to look forward to.

God Bless you, Linda!  Stay Inspired!  Jerry & Donna Yarnell

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

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.
