Exaggerate the essential; leave the obvious vague. - Vincent van Gogh
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.

Oil on canvas, 14" x 11"
Pretty happy with this. Always have wanted to paint her.
She must have been about 4 or 5.
I asked if I could take her picture and she nodded and posed.
