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.

October - Crawford Notch, NH


This quotes directly from Wikipedia:

"Crawford Notch is the steep and narrow gorge of the
 Saco River in the White Mountains of New Hampshire"

This sketch was done on the day we drove from 
North Conway completely around Mt. Washington (and almost halfway around again, looking for this spot!).




Red Tree at Crawford Notch      8" x 8"     Oil on prepared board



This is a sketch that I would like to do in a larger painting. That tree was really almost the only red one there, not sure why I put so many more red trees around it. 
Glad i got a photo. 
The b&w isn't a good value study. This is what happens when you spend an hour or less painting!
