    I so want to do this! I just need to finish a few small projects I have already started & get some pallet paper. Really love it! You ROCK!!!😎😎❣❣❣

  11. Jay Bee on September 4, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    Very nice. So refreshing to see something that is not a Bob Ross ‘recipe’ painting.

  12. Mindful Learner on September 4, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    I love this painting. Its beautiful.

  13. Leslie Watts on September 4, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    Last night I decided to see what lessons you have on YouTube because your mother is travelling. I saw the still life picture, but it was 4 hours and 45 minutes long??? Surely that must be a mistake I need to check this out. I am really glad I did. WOW!!!! Such a great lesson. I really appreciate how methodically you demonstrated how to paint this still life. Watching you apply the color, shading, shadows and highlights up close was so amazing to watch. You made it look so easy! Thank you Cinnamon. In my opinion this is the best lesson I’ve seen you do. It showed me that you are a very accomplished artist and paint at a level far greater than the lessons you have on YouTube.

  14. Lorraine Saliba on September 4, 2019 at 4:21 pm

    Absolutely Flawless dearest Cinnamon !! Simply blown away at how you evolved a painting and I must say I do agree with John that your painting is far far more exciting than the reference photo ! May you both be Blessed for all the time you spend with us all ! More than 4 hours 🥰😘🤗!! If that’s not true commitment….than I don’t know what that is !! Sincere thank you ! Love and hugs coming your way …from Malta ! Lorraine xxx🥰😘💕🌹💐🎨

  15. Kerry Coward on September 4, 2019 at 4:22 pm

    Absolutely STUNNING Cinnamon!! Perfection!! Love it!! ❤️💕❤️

  16. Raymond Harris on September 4, 2019 at 4:23 pm

    That’s amazing.

  17. Melissa Seahra on September 4, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    Hi Cinnamon, I sometimes don’t use sound for your videos, but could you please put on CC so I can see what you’re saying in your video? I’d love to learn this.

  18. Kerry Andrien on September 4, 2019 at 4:27 pm

    This is absolutely stupendous Cinnamon! Good on you girl!! I’m going to give this a go, I love still life and detailed work! Thank you for your awesome self! <3

  19. Sue Thomas on September 4, 2019 at 4:28 pm

    can you tell me where to get those necklaces you been wearing. thanks. great lesson!

  20. theartsherpa on September 4, 2019 at 4:29 pm

    Youtube says the beginning of the video will show up soon. IF by morning the Full video 4:45 minutes is not playing we will re-upload the recording of it .

  21. Lori Santos on September 4, 2019 at 4:30 pm

    This is such a fabulous painting Cinnamon. You always teach so many things with each painting and we appreciate all you and John do for us. I want to make this masterpiece soon…. Thanks for sharing. Sending love and peace 💕

  22. Nami Kisaalita on September 4, 2019 at 4:30 pm

    You are a gladiator! Five hours of butt kicking painting! Only a true champion could do this LIVE!

  23. Peggy Ducolon Smith on September 4, 2019 at 4:33 pm

    these are most likely red currants or a type of goose berry … and the upper glass is not centered on the page so a portion are not equal at all so a bit of optical illusion is present for sure

  24. CRCcreations Acrylic painting on September 4, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    Blown away! Wow!
    This has to be a 5 hooter!
    I feel like the little train that could! I think I can,
    I think I can, I think I can!

  25. Marty Dennis on September 4, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    AMAZING that you went this long!!!

  26. kerrygirl2003 on September 4, 2019 at 4:38 pm

  32. Crina Georgeta on September 4, 2019 at 4:47 pm


  33. cheryl pamela watts on September 4, 2019 at 4:49 pm

    Wow! Really awesome!!!

  34. Sam anario on September 4, 2019 at 4:49 pm

    Cinnamon…This was one of the funniest videos I have ever watched. You and John always make me laugh. The Painting is second to none and your time commitment truly appreciated. One question….What was that lovely piece of music in the interval? I leave your videos playing when I sleep and it always wakes me up lol. Ty for being so amazing 🙂

  35. Jo Loch on September 4, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    Love your makeup 💄

  36. Barbara M on September 4, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    You are human, I love that. I also say those are red currant. I know several people that grow red and black currants here in Pennsylvania. Edit/ I just looked it up red currants are a member of the gooseberry family.

  37. CheruvuMaruthi on September 4, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    Wow. Could you please upload the captions for this video if possible 🙏🙏🙏

  38. Cyril Preece on September 4, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    WOW. One serious piece of art BG. One of my favourites. Please do more x

  39. Rosie Kuhn on September 4, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    Thank you Sherpa and John. I so appreciate your teaching style at all hoot levels! I know I’m a much better painter because of your presence in my life!

  40. Peggy Thompson on September 4, 2019 at 4:51 pm

    This is beautiful. I’ll be honest I haven’t watched the whole thing yet. But I do plan on painting it so I’ll probably do it over several days. I can’t believe you spent almost 5 hours on a live video. Were you sitting and did you ever take a potty break?

  41. Cindy Strange on September 4, 2019 at 4:51 pm

    Nailed it ! <3 <3 <3

  42. Trigger Toes on September 4, 2019 at 4:52 pm

    Good job

  43. Lisa Chesley on September 4, 2019 at 4:52 pm

    This painting is absolutely amazing. No wonder it took you 4 hours. it will take me 4 days! Beautiful ❤

  44. KA Quinn on September 4, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    Wow, it turned out fantastic!

  45. Belinda Larry on September 4, 2019 at 4:55 pm


  46. Sonya Badgley on September 4, 2019 at 4:55 pm

    You are awesome, Cinnamon!! I can’t wait to try this one!! Thank you so much for all that you give!

  47. irl Smith Art on September 4, 2019 at 4:56 pm

    Hey girlie! Hand is better and I’m attempting this as my first major project 😳. I’ll keep my Sherpette monicker and wear it proudly in my old t shirts and my coffee cup with Kevin on it.

  48. Charley Wang on September 4, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    Travel, crossing the no man’s land. Finish the sketch return. Let me see your video again. Your channel theme is great. We pay attention to each other.

  49. Anne Keel on September 4, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    Love this painting !…I finally have the grid done….I said worse things doing it…lol….grids are so hard for me. I can’t wait to get to painting this. It’s a busy week for me so it will be next weekend before I get to start on it. I will be taking my time with this one. I am not a fast worker. <3

  50. Nadine Isabelle on September 4, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    I had to leave 2 1/2 hours in. I just got a chance to come back and see how you did. I have to say you are amazing it’s such a great painting.
