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.


Wacom tablets!!

Today we learned how to use the Wacom pad in Corel Painter. OMG! i loaded a scanned line drawing onto Painter and began working with it .... it is really fun. See work (Snettisham) on right. Got out a bit early today because it's a gorgeous day here. Barbara C and i went to the State Museum to see the Garry Kaulitz exhibit, there until 29th of March. His work is beautiful - in both design and colors....very much his story (history) of 64 years of life as told by his 15 x 22-inch, and the 30 x 59-inch monoprints. I loved it....go! Kaulitz's work is titled Sankofa, an Akan (African) word that means, "We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; so we understand why and how we came to be who we are today."
