An Inside Look at My Art Process

Greetings Friends,

I’ve been having fun with videos lately! It started with one video where I talked about a painting I’m working on, and now I’m doing almost daily videos discussing my work.

In these short 2-3 minute studio updates, I show work-in-progress, discuss my process step-by-step, and talk about my plans and ideas for the work. You get to see the successes as well as the failures, and how I deal with challenges.

To see all eight of my videos, click on the image below.

Artist Cassandra Tondro

The painting below is one that I feature in the videos. It’s titled “Weathered,” and it conveys the feeling of something old and worn that has developed a beautiful patina over time.

There’s a lot of layering in this piece. It started as a poured painting that didn’t work out. I sanded that down, and then applied several layers of textured white to create a white-on-white painting. That wasn’t particularly interesting, so I sanded down the white, and this is how it turned out.

Now I really like it, but it took a long time to get to this point.

What have you been doing for fun lately? I’d enjoy hearing your thoughts. You can share them with us in the comments section below.

With love and appreciation,



  1. Hi Cassandra. I have received your weekly email for the past year since I bought an eco printing PDF. I am a skeptic in general, but I have to admit, I enjoyed your eight studio updates that I checked out earlier today. Please continue them. Thanks, Cidne Hart (Los Angeles)
