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.

Charlotte the Cat, a painting


My daughter commissioned this painting for her friend as a wedding present.

This is the progression of the painting from a photo:

the damage

Astonishing size of this cat! The girl is of a normal-size, like 5'3" or so. 
This little painting was fun to do. Husband made a 1/2" frame that I painted black.

The wedding symbolism is the two bowls in the corner.

Thank you so much for viewing my art!
