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.


UAS Student Art Show

I was honored to be included into the UAS (University of Alaska SouthEast) Juried Student Art show with two pieces. Jim Fowler juried the show and out of over 100 pieces, about 50 were chosen for the show. One of my pieces that made it into the show was "Angular Honalee" (see below March 2) that i scanned (from a sketch made at the Ruby Room Life Drawing session) and constructed in the digital art class. My other piece was "Amazed Pears", a pastel that i made last semester while in my drawing class with Jane Terzis. Tonight was the opening of the UAS Student Art Show at the Juneau Arts and Cultural Center (old armory building). It was an amazing show with many varied art styles and mediums.
