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.

This is the piece i completed in time for our final critique which was today! It is oil, done mostly by palette knife, 12 x 9 inches. A study, but it stands on its own (very happy about that!). oh- and it is on Wallis paper.


Bean pot and pears, from my own photo. This was a little frustrating, but i think it is ok now.
