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.

Ice Ice Baby

I have never painted an ice cube before ...

Trapezoidal Ice Cube       6 x 5 inches      Oil on Arches Oil Paper


I like how this came together. I wanted to use my gorgeous turquoise paint for the background, then added a teensy bit of violet to white paint which made a beautiful icey lavender and there was my ice! Truly a limited palette ...

... and I had to paint FAST!

I am posting to Slices of Life very late today so I am No. 241, if you go looking for this on that blog. Is it my imagination or do the paintings seem to be getting better and better and the month marches on?

Thanks for hanging in here with me!
