Most Important:
In a recent effort to take his art in a direction he had not yet tried, Frakes started painting outside on location.  He said he tries to “capture what he sees” quickly, allowing him to concentrate on color choices.  Frakes encourages anyone wanting to be an artist to just do it, trying many different materials, subjects, and methods.
