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.


Ft Laramie, WY

Ft Laramie Nat'l Park, 8 x 10, oil study on panel
Here is a close up. It was really windy and the dust was aflyin':

If you click on it, you see all the dust in the paint! 
A little insect got stuck, but then blew away.

Here is the scene.

I did make it a bit more colorful than real life ... guess I had on my rose-tinted glasses again... or are they orange-tinted?
It was dramatic out there. 
I had a sense of urgency because the wind was whipping so.
Found a good painting spot - sort of out of the main wind coming from the N.
