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.



another idea is to use only one color scheme:
my favorites are - green, purple, orange

(this is an interesting Art History website that i will be exploring)

Well, UAS will be starting on Sept 3 and i am taking History of World Art II and Advanced Painting - both with my mentor, Jane Terzis. Looking forward to both classes.

i have to have a project for Painting class. The main thing i want to do is just ..paint paint paint... to get some oil(mostly) - pastel - acrylic, whatever - on the "canvas". Haven't been able to do much this summer with all the house stuff going on and traveling and doing ceramics (which i LOVE).

Have some ideas...finishing gift paintings, doing a new gift painting....not sure what this project will be called. Maybe "tying up loose ends"... experimenting with styles, collage, collaboration. AND getting ready for the March show with Timi and Carol!!!

i have a title for a painting "So you want a Rothko" ... see what happens ...
