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.

VPO Uncle Tim's Bridge



Uncle Tim's Bridge     12" x 12"     oil on canvas
This is my Virtual Paintout painting for January. 
(I hope it gets posted to the blog! ... do have a look in a few days. There are a great many good paintings there ... and lots of the Nauset Lighthouse! 
... we visited Nauset Light and took its photo.)

This was not a fast painting, but not too bad, either. Tried to keep it impressionistic.

Here is the link in Google Maps to see where the Google Car took the photo. You must allow the site to load so you can see the street view.

It has a special meaning for us (Matt and me) since we were really there in October, instead of virtually there, as I usually am for VPO.

I figure this was springtime. Can you see the people on the bridge?

... and THANKS for taking a gander at my blog!
