Select a membership level

Entry Level Patron

per month
You will have access to:

  • process videos
  • posts & photos of what’s currently on my easel with a discussion where I share how it is going... or not.
  • an informal insight into what it's like to be an artist (these are pretty informal)

In addition, I'll talk about whatever else comes to mind as it relates to my process. Or as I like to call "the ramblings of a mad man"
  • Patron-only posts and messages

Studio Patron

per month
In addition to the Entry level access you will have access to:

  • instructional videos (thought process as I paint)
  • discussion about art materials and technique (vblog or written)
  • Materials List with written of vBlog commentary
  • My palette and how I mix skin tones
  • tricks and tips
  • Patron-only posts and messages
  • Patron-only Instructional Videos

VIP Patron - Mentorship Program

Limited (5 remaining)
per month
In addition to all other levels, with the VIP Patron level you will receive one 30 minute face to face session per month via Zoom to discuss your art process, ask questions and get feedback. In additional you will receive two email discussions for critique, technical advice etc. As an example, you can send me a photo of your current work and I can give you written advice or critique. 

Scheduling will take place on an individual basis.

Also, if you are a budding artist and would like to take advantage of my Mentorship Program I would like to invite you to give it a try for one month. In addition to having more than 40 years experience as a professional artist, I've also taught for about the same number of years. So I'm hoping I can lend you a hand where it's needed.

I like to keep my face-to-face sessions informal, and answer questions and give advice as necessary. While I have a cap of 30 minutes, I typically don't cut off a session precisely at that time. The reason for this cap is to avoid those "awkward silences" that sometime happen. I'm happy to go beyond the 30 minutes if the student is benefiting from a conversation.

Incidentally, in addition to teaching adult workshops I also work with high school students. A lot of my work with them is to help them get their portfolios ready for submission to an art college or university. In my opinion this is where my Mentorship Program shines.

So if you need one or more sessions to ask portfolio based questions, please give it a try!

About D. Ahsén:nase Douglas

Hello, or as we say in my language Shé:kon. Skennon'kowa Akwe:kon

Thank you for visiting my Patreon page and hopefully deciding to be my patron. I promise to do my best to provide you with interesting content and insights into my process.

What is a Patron?  In the classical sense this is what it is.

Definition of patron
1a: a person chosen, named, or honored as a special guardian, protector, or supporter
a patron of the arts
b: a wealthy or influential supporter of an artist or writer
c: a social or financial sponsor of a social function (such as a ball or concert)
a patron of the annual masked ball
2: one that uses wealth or influence to help an individual, an institution, or a cause
a patron of the city library

Patrons of the Arts have a time honored place throughout history and have helped through their support, many of history's greatest artists to create what we now know as Masterpieces.

As many artists do, I supplement my income by giving workshops and presentations. Each time I do this or sell a painting, I am extremely grateful because this allows me to continue creating art for another day. 

I will strive to bring some of what I know about painting with oils to you my patron, but I'll also share some of my "ramblings" as I try to work out what I'm doing and give you an insight into my tangled mind as a painter.

Hold on because it may be a bumpy ride at times!
