Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.

I love serendipity!

This is one of the last drawings from class. I added a bit more to finish before popping it into a frame, but of course forgot to take a photo. This is an angled photo because the glare was bad.

But! The coolest thing happened! I follow Diane Hoeptner's blog. Diane had recently held a contest for her blogiversary and the person whose name she originally chose did not write her back, so she picked another, and it was mine! I actually won her Earth Harvest painting!! Thank you so much Diane! Please check her blog and website. Her floral paintings are unique, gentle and beautiful.
