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.

20th painting of 30 - January




"It is necessary to work very continuously 
and valiantly, and never apologetically. 
In fact, to be ever on the job 
so that we may find ourselves there, 
brush in hand, 
when the great moment does arrive."
- Robert Henri

Barely there ridgeline - lately there have been many blurry edges on that ridge.

Well, I am working "very continuously" (for 30 days anyway) ... ever-searching for that most satisfying feeling
 of a well-made painting - that "great moment". 
But are artists ever satisfied?
In my readings, and in my own mind ... I find, 
not too often.
