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.


Painting with Grant

Grant decided to paint the cactus.

Grant's Cactus  Water soluble paints on Arches Oil paper.

We set up a still life, but Grant liked the cactus. 
I painted this still life. Forgot to take a picture of the set-up.

Again, this was very quick because we were hitting the road with a 7-8 hour drive back to Torrington, WY. We had a beautiful, and too short, visit with my brother and his family.
I think these quick painting sketches are very good to do. 
Just get the gesture down and all the pertinent information. 
Simplifies the composition because of the time limit.

Thank you Scott, Sue, Grant and Clark! 
Hudson (another nephew) and his friend Phalen also stopped by! 

Hope to see everyone again in the not too far future.
